Velocity stacks instead of airbox?

Im going to have to do some major mods on the 04' airbox to get it to fit into my frame (2000') and it got me thinkin about velocity stacks.

I would think they were more geared towards high end power.. Am I correct? Would they be usable on the street? after a custom map of course?

On a 600 I don't think it would be a big difference in power, plus they are not really plug n play items. You have to make sure they are the correct lenghth and that takes some testing. Power Commander and exhaust would be a better item if you dont already have them.

You'll need the sensors that go in the airbox. I'd recommend possibly using a SRAD airbox with the later model sensors. The spacing is close, you just may have to get creative.

i hate it when bikes are rigged together. reminds me of jj's bikes and i cant stand fixing their ****knng rigging. your best shot is 2 try the 2000 air box, if that doesnt work then make an air box out of fiberglass. please dont rig it together and have it looking like thats all i ask. if you rig it make it nice

totally useable, you are correct in thinking the tuning will be affected, not only the air/ fuel aspect, but also, real world, the length and curve of the bell all affect flow and mix and ultimately HP. they are geared more for a high end machine real world, but a lot of harley guys use 'em cause they seen em on tv and they are cool looking, kinda like the fingerless gloves.
Me, I prefer filter media and fingers on my gloves.

Try pod filters. Either way, it's going to have to be tuned to run right without an air box.
yup, me too, or short K&N's

Put carbs on it with pod filters

I put a honda 919 in my 900rr & had the same airbox clearance issues. I went back to the 900 carbs & harness and got some crazy hp out of it.
