Is there any interest / advantage to remove the intake hose on the airbox ? I read that some people did.

If so, how simple is this ?

It's easy. Pull the lid off the airbox, and you can slide the snorkel out. On the 8V, it improves mid range torque slightly. I don't believe it makes a big difference on the 2V. It will increase intake honk.

Major benefit is the extra room to carry a puncture repair kit (without blocking airflow) Wink

Thanks for your reply Thumbs Up

Understood. No mechanical improvement on 1100’s but remove the snorkel gives a little space under the seat.

Probably will stay as is Wink

Took mine out, no appreciable gain, so put back in. It is a great way to get stuff sucked into the airbox though lol. I prefer being able to put stuff under the seat and not get sucked into the airbox. But YMMV
