PSA - Cheap Spike Air Cleaner
« on: Nov 17, 2012, 08:20:32 AM »
FYI - This was the cheapest SAC I could find - $67 plus $12.95 shipping = less than $80 for a new SAC. 

It's the one for the VTX 1300 which is exactly the same as the Yamaha 1100, but for 50% less.

I know some others have bought theirs from here as well, but the price is even lower now.  Mine is on the way!

(PS - Mods, my apologies if this is in the wrong subforum.  I don't post enough, so I'm throwing it in the mod thread.)

Sadly...not yet, waiting on the oil pressure gauge that was defective but didn't show itself until after I took delivery and got a few miles on it.  If all goes well it should be ready next week.

Will this spike bolt right on or is there extra modification involved?

I'm sure there'll be some modification required - you'll probably need to drill the bracket for the rear mount.  The pics appear to make it look like the same kit used.

PM me your email and I'll send you the SAC instructions on PDF.

They're selling the black version for the 1100 yamaha for $77.  Can't decide which to buy for a black raider  :o :o

That's the same SAC and the same place I bought mine from.  Great deal and easy install.  The hardest part is drilling the hole in the Raider bracket.
