Here is some pics of my prototype intake designed SPECIFICALLY for the TRX250R, with 38 and larger carbs, also uses the MUCH larger 06plus TRX450R filters.  Dyno work and flow bench testing to come soon.

Progress!

It's still sitting on my work bench.  That's my Bro-in-law's bike and he needs to get back in high gear on it!

This will work with my Aluminum airbox.  I'll have to do a different intake to work with the stock box.  Doable forsure.

The airbox will mimic this design I have for the TRX450R.  Nice thing about this box is you can run it as an "airbox eliminator" or as a complete airbox, I think an airbox that can be configured for different riding conditions is key.  To start they will be vented as shown.  I'm working with another company in the snowmobile world that makes hydrophobic mesh, so the vents will be covered with this mesh.  Looks like outerwears material except it doesn't let water, mud or snow in.
