i was looking at my bike this afternoon mainly at the right hand side now on my old v star that was the intake and on my buddys warrior it is the intake to the air box under the tank but on the raider it dosent look like there is any duct work running out from behind it (i havent taken it apart yet) i guess my queistion would be if that doesnt funnel air to the air box will there not be any intake options for the raider?

i was also wondering if anybody makes or is coming out with a tachometer for the raider but i would want it to blend in like almost a factory job not a handle bar clip on, like the digital one on the worriar is pretty sweet.

Thunder manufacturing is currently testing their high-flow air kit from the Road/Stratoliner (same motor,etc) on the Raider. I'll be checking in with them next week. Like you said, the entire air box is under the tank, so the intake will not be visible from the outside of the bike.
The system is comprised of two K&N pod filters, clamps and breathers, and removes the restrictive airbox assembly, so even without ducting, the engine will still breathe better.

For a tach, check out Dakota Digital. They've got a bunch of different digital displays that can be used for custom applications. Some of them are made to clip onto the bars, some might even fit under the bar, between the risers. Their other units are made to put wherever you can find a spot.

do you think anyone will come out with some custom covers? i was thinking a couple of those hyper chargers with vacume butterflies would look pretty sweet even if they were just dummy covers

So far, the only thing that I know for sure is that Thunder Mfg, the intake guys, also have a "decorative kit" that they sell with the intake. It removes the big side covers, and replaces them with a much smaller, cleaner cover that leaves more of the engine visible. It comes in both chrome and wrinkle black. It was designed for the Roadliner, so it'll fit. Check it out here http://www.thundermfg.com/store/index.php?l=product_detail&p=239

If you want the hyper charger look, you can get the Kuryakyn housing without any of the functional internals, so you could fabricate some kind of bracket using the existing hardware. http://www.jpcycles.com/productgroup.aspx?GID=4C1189D4-5547-407B-B7BF-641CC803BD96&brand=kuryakyn

RaiderRider,

I am in the same boat, I have everything for the backrest except the base. Yamaha tells me May 7th at the earliest.

I thought it was a East Coast thing

I saw some of the other members pic's with backrest on

My XYL is a trooper over 300 miles so far without it

She rode the back of my Sporty on a Bandlander seat a few thousand before I
put anything on it.

She likes riding as much as I do

I'd like to see some raider specific handlebars with more pullback. I've tried a few by just mounting them to get a feel and although I liked the feel for their comfort, they didn't look right on the raider.

I have a frame cover on order from Morton's for underneath the pipes (that ugly little area with heat tape over it). I called them today to check and the service person told me they just put out a bunch of new accessories for the Raider. They have a great looking customized Raven on their Home Page. Check out their new stuff. A couple cool things jumped out for me like the chromed horns and the chrome swing arm covers. There's another fender/plate option too.
NJ, they do have a BAK they just came up with. It's installed and tested on their bike, no Dyno stats yet, but did say it increased their air intake about ~3x from stock. What I like about it is that it eliminates the stock air box cover and replaces with an opened up version. They do use K&N filters. I'm considering getting it, but hesitate because they are not a big name like Patrick or Thunder Mfg. K&N is K&N right? Let me know if what you think of their BAK.

Forgot to mention they are running the Cobra Fi2000r CL with their pipes and air intake system.

That Raider they feature on their homepage is beautiful, the paint's amazing.

Their bolt-on stuff is nice, and I like the swingarm covers. I definitely like the frame cover you ordered.

I'm a little concerned about their Air Kit - I think they cut a couple of corners, they only supply one breather, while the others have two, and they don't include the venturis that both Patrick and Thunder include in their kits. For the money, I'd still recommend Patrick or Thunder - they're all within about $20 of each other and they've got the Dyno work and experience to back them up.
