Had to redesign the box as it was impossible to weld, the result has a lip which looks ugly but i'm going to fill the welds to make them smooth then paint the box so I think it's going to look beautiful. I'm yet to tap the hole for the fill cap, and the inlet/outlet pipe. I also need to explore if I want a level sight glass, was thinking of recycling the one off the original box. Here are some pictures,

There Air intake system is really coming together, I made an o-ring for the Airbox-to-air sensor side which makes it a snug fit. I've also made a another adapter for the other side which gives me a rectangle to circle conversion so I can pop an Pod filter on (Picture below, I'll be test fitting it Friday). I've painted the Air sensor and will post pictures soon. But for now heres my new filter: (RC-8300)

Well I think the filter looks great but it does stick out a bit too far so I think I'm going to push it in by 3-4cm.

Just put a chunk of mesh stainless over the mouth of the MAF sensor to keep the birds and mice out.  It's not like this bike is going to get 10's of thousands of miles anymore.  Just don't go out in dust storms.

Yeah I'm gonna push it in 32mm see what it looks like and take it from there. A mesh would look quite nice can't lie, and your right it's probably going to spend most of its life inside.

So it may not look like it but I've taken the Pod Filter in as far as I can, about 32mm which is a significant amount. The whole system fits like a glove, however the bracket I've used to hold the air sensors in place has a tendency to pull the air sensor off the airbox. However this is very much solvable with added support in the bracket and making sure the bent angles are all accurate. Hopefully this will be sorted soon. Along with the mounting of the ABS unit and the Battery in the same space.
