    Default Air Box Mod - Fuel Consumption???

    Has anyone noticed a difference in their fuel consumption after doing the air box mod, I'm pretty sure I am NOT getting as much mileage out of a full tank as I used to before making the mod!
    Anyone else had this?

    I did the mod about 6 weeks ago and haven't noticed any difference to fuel consumption. It defo got rid of the flat spots i used to have, but i know some people haven't noticed any difference.

    I haven't noticed any difference apart from the first week when i was giving it "Throttle", to see how it went.
    My consumption maybe marginally better, but i haven't done any decent runs to see what its like on open roads.

    Did mine a week ago...cant say I have noticed any fuel consumption difference but I have noticed - as others have said - a vast difference in smoothness. No flat spot and I no longer stall it in 2nd !!!
