Performance Air Intake-Inexpensive Upgrade

Performance Air Intake

This Indian performance air intake for the scout is a inexpensive upgrade and will let the engine inhale more air, deliver more power which in turn will lead to quicker acceleration and better throttle response. This performance air intake is a direct replacement to the OEM stock air intake that came on your scout sixty. They are made for the Scout Sixty and the Scout.

Now why is it important to get this air intake from Indian and not another company?

Well let me say that this performance air intake is made for the scout sixty and they also make them for the scout. This means that when installed by the dealer or by you if inclined will suck the air from the outside and not from above the engine compartment where the air is hot.

I seen some aftermarket air intakes that do not actually fit in the intake hole and in turn fail at its main purpose of delivering more air. This does not increase the air flow due to the flow of air not funneled to where it needs to be.

Which then fails to deliver on increased power, faster acceleration and better throttle response. So, when choosing an aftermarket air intake not all of them will do what they say they will not because of its construction but because of design mode inconsistencies.

What do I  mean by design mode inconsistencies is that if the air intake for your motorcycle resides on the side of the bike then buying a better aftermarket air intake and placing it where the stock one was, is a good idea.

That is why this replacement air intake works so well because it is consistent with the original design.

This performance air intake when combined with an K&N Air filter for the Scout/Scout Sixty would be the start of something great. The only other purchase would be the slip-on pipes and get it flashed to work in the perfect air/fuel mixture.

The Maverick Crusher Slip-on are a great set of aftermarket pipes and I go into detail on a previous post. So for fathers day I hope on installing the Maverick Crusher pipes, air intake and flash the motor, I already have a K&N air filter for my Scout Sixty.

    You have sold me on this! I don’t even have a bike at the moment, but now I know what I will do to it when I get it.I know how to ride, but I don’t know all the ins and outs of the bike. You did a great job explaining about the air intake and what it does, and how changing it would effect the bike, that even I understood what was going on. That is what makes this so useful to any one looking at changing stuff on their bike even if for the first time. It is easy to follow and understand.

      Thanks McKenzie, I really appreciate your comment, I would recommend you attend the Harley Davidson Riding Academy to learn how to ride a motorcycle all you need to do is know how to ride a bicycle. They are great instructors and you go from not knowing how to ride to riding and certification in 3 days!, And I recommend the Indian Motorcycle line up as far as motorcycles it is what I ride and they are a great motorcycle.Thank you and Good Luck,JesusB

    I can see by the information that you have given why the Indian Air Intake would be a good purchase for someone looking to increase the performance and overall experience of their bike. I think that the fact that it is made precisely for the Indian Scout and Scout Sixty is a major plus!

    Thanks for a great review!

      Anita, You are right the Indian Air Intake is a great purchase when combined with a new exhaust system you are looking at increasing the horse power of the bike close to 10%. The fact that it is specifically designed for the Indian Scout is a plus when it comes to performance.Thanks for the Comment,JesusB

    How much on average does it cost to have the fuel flashed?

      Hello Toni,
      It really depends on the engine size or what bike you are talking about, but depending on whether or not you are installing the muffler at the shop they will usually include the price of the flash as part of the muffler install. And this can run anywhere from $50.00 to $150.00.
