(Update 6/11/16)

Tank lift spacers can be ordered on eBay. Here's the links. Same exact part just separate listings for XC and XR.

Yep. These are the same, just a separate XC and XR listing.

Email [email protected] if you have any problems ordering or receiving the lift spacers.

Needed just a tad more space under the tank for a project I'm working on. Designed some tank lift adapters to accomplish this. Others have since asked if they could get a set so extras have been made available on eBay.

The adapters are flat on one side and have a slight taper on the other. When installed correctly, the tapered sides should be facing outward.

I may be interested in a set if you want to sell.

How much more volume you think you'll get outa the half inch? Just curious!
I have no clue right now. The idea is to form an airbox that follows the countour of the top of the frame and the bottom of the tank. At a minimum the extra space should allow an airbox structure without a loss of net space prior to the lift.

The general plan for this project is to create a structure for an airflow path which can take advantage of air momentum and velocity while decreasing intake noise. I''m designing this one with the Lloydz filter in its normal position although doing so will decrease intake tunability. The result may be only improved throttle response and muted valve noise. If the bike responds well then I'll see if I can utilize a reflective wave and resonance to add tunability. But that's a more complex design that would require relocating the air filter.

Anyhow, tuning intake and exhaust to a specific motor has always been a passion of mine.

Got the cover made for when molding the negative space under the tank.

Very cool idea! Keep us posted! Losing some of the intake noise would be nice - but increasing air in would be better! It's to bad we couldn't get some kind of Ram Air into the air box area? I have a Varram Cold Air kit on my Hemi truck and it works very well! ( some say it doesn't do anything - but I know it does) It takes air from in front of radiator right at grille and dumps it into a large airbox right on top to the throttle body. In the winter I have to put the grill inserts in as the thing gets too much cold air!!!! Right now the temps are around -5 to +6 C and the thing just flys because of all of the cold dense air being pushed in there! Same kinda thing would work on the victory also I think.

If your planning on making the airbox too, well holy crap. I don't know of a vendor doing this for the cross bikes so you may be breaking new ground. I hope it works out. A quieter intake would be fantastic.

Likely the shape and diameter along the pathway from front of the radiator to the airbox, the airbox volume and the transitions across all three parts makes the intake very efficient at moving air. Likely tuned to work together and the end result is tuned for the truck. Nice.

If only the opening in the frame in front of the air filter (inside of the neck area) was about 20% larger. Were that the case, I could do a tube with flange on one side and a cylinder filter on the other and it would draw air from the neck cavity. The length of the tube would have some influence on torque. Unfortunately the opening isn't large enough for a tube with a 5" cross section and leave sufficient room for flow into the cavity.

Now if a side effect of this raising the front of the tank a 1/2 inch or so was to make the notoriously stupid operation of the fuel gauge to work more efficiently, I will buy a couple of your raiser uppers just for that......
