    Has anyone ever used Baron's Big Air Kit? I was wondering how it compares to Max Air. I have read alot on Baron recently and am curious.

    The BAK is a solid performer but the pod system used by Maxair will give better performance.

    "After countless hours of looking at the different systems and researching, I decided to go with the Max air kit only to find that they no longer make them. Any ideas on another kit that works well? I really dont like the way the Hyper charger looks but now I am back to square one."

    I just read the above quote from chilipepper regarding Maxair no longer being available,....can anyone provide anymore information on this????? I was about to get one for my wifes 1100.

    I noticed he posted that in the Roadstar forum. I serached Maxair's website and didn't see a kit for the Roadie. Maybe that is what he was talking about. I hope so, because that was going to be my next mod.

    They no longer make them for the Roadie..........There is an individual that found a like filter and fabricated a mount that could be done for under $30.00, needless to say it had an impact.

    There is also another supplier for the pod system (Metric Magic) or you can buy the filters, install them and re-jet at the same time (ordering the jets separately).

    Hey, we finally picked up my wifes v-star silverado 1100 yesterday. She loves her bike. I took it for a ride also. It is great. The pipes sound sweet,...low deep tone, not obnoxiously loud, but definately attention grabbers, and when you crack the throttle it ROARS. I noticed the bike is definatly, "zippier" than stock, thats the word that comes to mind. Its smooth quick accelleration. (My ride is a Roadstar 1600 so I like power and torque). I wouldn't say her bike has the torque mine has, but its definately able to hold it's own as she rides with me.
    This was the first Maxair kit the shop installed and they had never heard of it before I brought it to their attention and had them order and intstall it. Initially the slow delivery left the shop unimpressed with the company. But after they installed it, they nothing but praise and compliments on my selection of the maxair kit. They said the kit was dead on and the company did lots of R&D and got it right. The manager said he is now going to try to steer yamaha customers to that kit. So all and all I guess it was worth the wait.
