I am installing the hordpower air intake on my R7 right now. Wondering if anyone else who has installed this has run into the same issue as I have. The instructions that came with it say “refer to pictures”, and there are no pictures to be found lol. The specific problem I am having is mounting the bracket that secures the air intake. The instructions don’t explain exactly how to do it, and it seems like this bracket may not work with the R7. Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you!

On the Hord filter, the top mount bracket ships upside down, you need to flip it over so the mounting tabs are pointing up.
The tabs on the upper mount attach to the rear bolts on the fuel tank (at least on my FZ-07)

Hope this helps.

Ed, thank you for the response. It confirms my suspicion-the fuel tank bracket on the r7 is different from the fz/mt07. I will have to do some modification of some sort to make it work I guess.

Do you think you'll need a tune after installing the air intake?
I have one on my 07 and the answer is yes. It flows much better than the stock airbox. Without richening the mixture you'll get no added power (so why bother with the intake?), and you'll be too lean, risking damage to the pistons if you run hard (if you don't run hard, why bother with the intake?). The standard ECU closed loop function won't enrichen the mixture sufficiently. If you keep the stock airbox and just go with a filter change, you don't need to remap the ecu.

Yes. Similar to what the previous guy said. You need an ecu flash or tune to correct the fuel air mixture or you risk damage to the engine and poor performance. I personally had vcyclenut do the Woolich flash on my ecu, which completely unrestricts everything and corrects fuel air ratio. Let me tell you guys… the two brothers exhaust, hordpower intake, and Woolich flash, the bike is an absolute ANIMAL compared to stock. HUUUGE improvement. If you don’t believe me, vcyclenut posted dyno results to prove it. Roughly 9-10 hp gain from stock!

thank you very much. I figured we needed a flash.Awesome I am looking forward to trying out some options on my R7 I just bought it! I’m coming from a Cbr 125 I’ve been riding for 7 years on it time for an upgrade
