Up for sale, as the title says, a NEW TurnOne race airbox. I've had this for a few months now and have been too lazy to install it. Now my bike needs other things and this airbox is a lower priority for me so I'm putting it up for sale.

Once again, this is new and never installed! This airbox will fit SP1 bikes ONLY. It will include everything; filters and step by step installation instructions. This airbox will lose you ~8lbs of top heavy weight and will gain you ~5hp.

I'm asking $325 SHIPPED to the lower 48 only, no BS "Paypal" fee charges, no seperate s/h fees, just a straight $325. I accept Paypal ONLY. PM me for my Paypal addy. No dibs, first come, first served.

Too bad it's for an SP1, because if was for an SP2 I'd definitely jump on that.
Good luck with the sale. I know it will be gone soon!!

The instructions are valid for both SP1 and SP2.
The SP2 Turn-One airbox will also fit the SP1.
Because the SP2 has additional steering head gussets welded near the steering head, the SP2 airbox has reliefs molded to clear these gussets.
That's why the SP1 airbox will not fit the SP2.

sooo......have you sold this air box yet? Very interested and ready now if you haven't yet sold. If anyone else is selling Moroki, Turnone, or Thorsten for cheap let me know, just don't want to pay $600-800 for brand new + installation and parts.

Oh, and if anyone has a great map for those upgrades + Akrapovic cans, with 15,000 miles.

horse power that is....the torque will come up as well, but 180 Hp is achievable out of a very well built 1000cc V-Twin right? Yes with race parts and tuning and lowering the reliability of the engine, of course, but if they could do it years ago with SBK, then you and I should be able to do more and with reliability this day and age......so thanks for joining the nay-say-ers, its you who drive us to achieve and make it all the more worth it......Oh, and have fun down there!

Be aware that that 186 HP number for the RC51 WSBK came at the expense of complete engine overhauls/major parts replacement every 3500 Km.
This was from Colin Edwards chief mechanic.

At least that was better than the Ducati 998 that Bayliss was racing.
His engine was turning 13K RPM back then, and was scrapped shortly after the event due to stress cracks.

For street use, I've heard that 145-150 HP is the upper limit on power and reliability with these bikes.
Anything above that and you shorten the engine life.
Besides, the parts needed to accomplish more than this are hard to come by and very expensive. This where you get into diminishing returns on the investment.

To have a bike such at the Ducati 1198R pushing 180 HP on the street is a testament to how far we've come with technology.

I've read the same as subsailor. I hear guys with full exhausts, airboxes, HRC stage 2 cams (which are non existant at this point), along with a bunch of other performance mods are getting into 145-150 hp area. And that right there with stage 2 cams has decreased your reliability significantly.
I dont even think the full HRC racing kit conversion (which is pretty much a complete motor overhaul) was putting down numbers anywhere close to that....but hey i've definitely been wrong before.

HELP. I ended up with an older Airbox that has the big nasty foam filter and wire cage instead of the blue wire cage and the white paper filter.... Do I have any options as I really don't want to stick that big nasty looking filter back on there. Has anyone ever fabricated one to cleant he look up a little? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
