Well I'm on my 1st V-rod after riding supersport for 8 years. bought my '12 VSRCF last month "N" love it:p!
Have some baffeling questions since I have had my head buried in sport bikes for 8 years!
Why the hell did the design team omit a ram air scoop on the bike? Why have this stupendious pipe-hitter of a block and no super-breather to feed it? this is something that is standard on most modern bikes! why not the v-rod?
Yes I have seen all of these kookey aftermarket air-box setups. But none are a optimal design. and none for the Muscle!

take your airbox lid off & just exacto that plastic out from behind the wire mesh

Not worth the effort for the extremely minimal advantage.Any advantage is really because of the cold air induction that comes with it.Ram air itself is more of a gimmick than anything else.
