I have to give most of the credit on this ideal to Rocketchp after reading about him using a similar setup to the Hot Seat using a banshee filter I got to thinking and got out the old Banshee Parts tonight and went to work. I took the factory air box cage which is very cheap to get a hold of on ebay and a pice of metal sleeveing I had laying around the shop that is used for ventilation systems of some type and shaped it first to fit inside the Predators factory air boot then I took that and slide it over the cage section of the Banshee filter cage and marked it out. Then cut the front of it so that it would slide inside the factory intake boot. It has came out very good all I gotta do now is find one of my banshee filters tomorrow and give it a shot. Pics are on my profile of the setup let me know what you guys think.

Hey Rocketchp are you running the 170 jet with your setup? I need a starting point.

Yes along with a 50 pilot. Clip position and airscrew are still in the stock positions. I haven't really had a chance to ride it for any length of time, but it seems pretty close now.

Well cleaned up my old Banshee Uni filter and went to the dealer to pick up my 170 main jet. As luck would have it my 13/38 gear combo came in also :)!!! So I rush home to start adding the new parts. Finally I got the gears on after sweating my arse off outside in a heat index of 110 I went to the carb got it apart to find that I had misplaced my 170 jet after an hour of searching I said screw it and called the dealer and told them to pull another and would have the wife pick it up on the way home. So I decided I had to ride it just to see how much the gears helped so back to the stock air box setup and 155 jet. The gears made a great improvement over stock before I could pull the front tires about 1' off the ground in 4th with some strong pulling of the bar and dumping the clutch now it was lifting them about knee high and was pulling every gear alot better with no flat spots. Finally the wife came home with the jet so in goes the 170 and out comes the air box for the air system replacement. All I can say is OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I didn't even get off the chat in my driveway and could tell a difference it almost ripped my arms off the bars with I punched it in 2nd. Once I got it out on the pavement it was like a completely different machine this thing flat out rips! Its banging through every gear so fast its amazing and when I went for the 4th gear wheelie test and the tires went to the sky. Folks all I can say you can play aroud with all the mods you want put until you do a setup like this you don't know what your missing.
