Moto Hooligan airbox seals

Postby Number 6 » Fri Feb 09, 2018 10:07 am

Hello
I'm fitting a Moto Hooligan airbox to my bike at the moment and needed new throttle body-airbox seals.
Instead of getting them from the U.S. I contacted Simply Bearings Ltd and ordered two.
They initially miss-understood my order and sent plain BS 335 O rings instead of Quad/X ring seals but kindly sent the correct seals free of charge when the mistake was identified.
Top class service and highly recommended company.

The seals from Waitrose glass preserving jars are just the right size........................................

Really? They won't let me into Waitrose.
Don't suppose you know the effect on the fuel/air ratio of removing 2nd flies and adding the Moto Hooligan airbox?
There seems to be conflicting information on here about it.
My bike has the SAS removed and Akrapovic cans.

Aye, we used the jar seals for Paul R’s prototype airbox to seal velocity stacks.

No idea re mileage consequences but guess it’s unlikely to improve.......custom map would help though.

Aye, I'm going to get the bike into Dynobike in Malton.
They're supposed to know what they're doing.
It was previously set up by HM Racing, nice fueling and 125bhp but I'd better get it tweaked a bit now I've done the airbox and 2nd flies.
I love this bike, it's the one Adam Child rode in a YouTube video, he only managed 14th but apparently it won at Snetterton, not sure who the rider was.
