Looking at doing one of the SPyKER mods, I think they look pretty cool (and according to my kids I need all the help with that, that I can get). My question is this...how is this mod in rainy weather? Would I need to worry about riding in the rain and getting water in the air filter/carb area? I got rid of my car (due to the economy) and am fulltime on two wheels now, so will be riding in all types of weather.

Anyway, thanks for the feed back on this....now if I could just get SPyKER to make one with a Les Paul guitar in the middle. :mosh:

I have ridden in some pretty heavy downpours and have not had a problem with mine. I also have the top of the airbox cut off and run a K&N filter.

If your only in it for the looks, you can also block it off with some clear lexan on the inside of the housing and not have to worry about water at all.

I've had the Spyker for a couple years and no issues with rain. I did the Scar mod at the same time, and love how it runs... Also using the K&N, since the stock one might not fare so well if wet. I suggest going K&N if you are concerned about getting rain in there...

I am down here in Roseburg and ride year round rain or sometimes shine.

I have the BAK which has an open all the way around filter it is a K&N and I don't run the rain cover.

Spyker with a K&N should be fine in the rain but you may want to pull the drain cap off the bottom of the box and leave it off.

I agree!
