    Hey boss i hope you don't think i was being a jerk. It certainly was not my intent.

    I was merely thinking of what is actually possible, not necessarily what is common.

    Only reason i think the air filter can out pace the airbox is because Ivan opens up the box a bit, and even with an aftermarket filter the gain is not large.

    Air boxes and OEM filters are really good these days. I only wish suspension ran along at the same pace.

    Apparently the air box on the Ninja is a bit smaller than the one on the Z1000, and gives slightly less power because of it. As Per Sport Rider April 2011.

    Be neat to test both air boxes on a Ninja 1000 on a dyno and see what happens.

    Everything I've read says the Ninja makes as much power as the Z but has less intake noise which is what Kawasaki was after. If you want the additional 2 HP on top, drill it like Ivan suggests and the problem is solved if you don't mind the additional intake noise.

    The bike is far from stock, the Dyno runs are for comparison purposes between the filters with no map change. I never worry about the actual numbers & never worry about what other riders get on their Dyno's, for me it is the before & after runs I look at with the same bike, same Dyno, same day.

    I have both the Z1000 & Ninja air box sitting on my work bench & there is no difference in air flow between the standard filters, there is a very small difference between the outer sealing face sizes of the filters.
