Man those stacks are tall. Notice all the fittings appear to be Torx. Time for a toolkit upgrade.

Stand corrected. Now as per priller RSV mille, fit gasket to box to make underside of the tank the lid. Hereby increasing volume of the airbox and gain HP!
As mentioned break out the dremel. :lol:

Thanks for the lid photo's, is there any gap between the bottom of the tank & the top of the air box? The air box does look like it has good flow with only a few bends in the intake.
