After many hours of development, prototyping and testing, we can finally offer this awesome performance intake air filter kit for the Yamaha XV535 Virago. This is our first endeavor into the world of the XV so we thought we'd enter with a banger!
The kit replaces the stock intake setups and air filter with a specially developed, snap in bellmouth, a high flow performance air filter (made to our specification by Ram Air Filters in the UK) and some new jets for the carbs - to match fuel delivery to the newly increased air flow.
The kit is basic to install and an installation video is already up on youtube to guide you through the process. Working on carbs can be tricky, but if you get yourself the right tools, follow the steps in the video and take your time, you will breeze through it.
On our test bike, power increased by a little over 10% across most of the rpm range, with a 5hp increase at 4-5000rpm and a 4hp increase at 6000rpm to the top. These results would likely be reflected in your testing as well - most certainly as a percentage increase over stock - which is absolutely felt in the seat! The power is delivered nicely and allows the bike to pull harder out of corners and to overtake with ease on the highway. The kit also weighs 0.5kg less than the stock XV535 intake set up - so the kit saves weight as well!
We conducted over 16 hours of dyno testing ourselves and collaborated with several individulas accross the globe, including Joseph Parry and Rich at RK Performance Parts in the UK to conduct further testing and verify the performance of the kit as a third party - where they managed to show the exact same gains! As did all of our testers!
If you have any questions about the parts or the kit, just shoot us an email to our info mail address. Cheers!
