  • Sharkskinz Airbox

    Does anyone know if the Sharkskinz airbox is a stock replica or one with a larger volume? Can't seem to find it on the website. Thanks, K.

    It is a bit bigger than stock, also doesn't have the ugly bends that the stock design has.
    I did have a couple pics somewhere but I can't remember where I saved them

      I'm in the process of making one but it occured to me it might be easier and less time consuming to buy one instead. I would like to see a photo so if you come across one let me know.

          Just call them, they will make one for you. Sometimes they pull items off of the web, but they can still make them, like the Kit airbox, that used different TB's.

            +1 to what everyone else said. And let me know if you still need some pics.

              Called today and I was told the only one they would make was slightly larger than the stock one and for the stock throttle bodies. I think I'll continue with mine, it's more of a tray that seals the tank and frame. I'm not real good at fiberglass but I'll give it a go. Besides I started working on a mold already.

                Did they give you a price? Carbon fiber an option do you know?

                    They usually give a 15-20% discount.

                      Indy Superbikes have it listed @ USD$302- which would bring Sharkskinz price inline as Thumpthump has mentioned.

                            Here are some pics. FYI, the fiberglass airbox weighs only 1.7 pounds.
