    What did you end up doing with the intake air sensor (IAT)?

    I've been thinking of doing the same thing actually, but haven't figured out what to do with the sensor yet, looking for ideas!

    ^^ I drilled a hole in the bottom of the air filter with a stepped drill bit (uni bit) big enough for the factory rubber grommet. Then pushed the sensor in it.

    I like it! I was kinda thinking of doing that as well. If you don't mind me asking, what is that air-filter off of?

    I'm really interested in seeing how your build will go. I love what you've done with the electronics. It's a clean and well done setup.

    I don't know what you're planning to do with the shock and brake reservoirs. But, maybe the hidden rear brake master cylinder mod will be of interest to you.

    Also, could you tell where the air filter came from?

    The air filter is a K&N part RA-77V. I just went on the K&N web site. Then click "browse filters by dimensions". Plug in some dimensions you want and it will list a bunch of options. It wasn't plug and play. Had to make an inlet pipe. So if someone was looking to go in that direction search their filters by size and find one that works for you application.

    The searching by dimensions is pretty handy the way they have it set up.
