I started installing a tempa flow on my 00 XCR 800 and I'm not sure where to place it in the air box as the 2 peice airbox makes it kinda tricky to install it as they say in the instructions. They want the main unit mounted as high in the airbox as it can be, and the inlet in the same compartment as the original carb vents and not in a high flow area. So to me it looks like the main unit should be mounted in the upper airbox and the vent in the lower part, but it would make it hard to install and to take the box out in the future.

Can I mount the main unit as high as I can in the lower half of the airbox?

Anyone have any suggestions or pics of how they did it?

Thanks

How I did it with the ATACC was to make the upper and lower parts of the airbox one; i.e. join them. This was, when you take out the airbox, it comes out one piece. All you have to do is remove the air hose connections to the connection on the airbox. You want to follow the instructions. If the main unit is to be mounted in the upper box, that is where it goes. The vent into the lower part is tricky, as the have to figure out how to keep the nifty little filter from coming off with vibration, and keep the 3/4" distance to the end of the filter. I got around this by using a plastic fitting with the same inside diameter as the plastic vent hose, and putting the filter on that. I checked this with Holtzmann and was told it would be fine.

You want to know how I connected the upper and lower airbox? A small eyebolt at the back of the upper part in the floor, far enough back to the "eye" was clear of the lower box, and I then bent a piece of stiff welding rod precisely so it would be a very tight fit around the bottom of the box, with the end stuck into one of the drain holes. This way I could pull it off and the two halves would come apart. Below is a photo:
It shows the air inlet in the bottom half, and the wire holding the two halves together. The stupid Well-nuts were always oozing through the holes allowing the halves to come apart.

Note: this was on an ATACC install. From what you described the installation is quite similar.

Ya it sounds similar, Except I have no filter just a 1/2' plastic T for the inlet. It looks like it would be hard to work inside the upper airbox half as the holes are all small. I'll have to have a second look at mine.

Thanks for the pics Roger, That looks like a much simpler install than trying to go through the upper half. Have you had any issus or has it worked AOK?
