See below in installation tips #7 to transfer the nut clips, this method would help stabilize the fairing. There is no fairing rod available at this time. The 2022 Grom fairings are very sturdy with the nut clips in position, however, if you're worried about the fairings moving, you can leave the stock airbox intact and just remove the OEM snorkel.
Made in the USA! *PATENT PENDING*
OPTIONAL K&N Pre-charger (see drop-down menu): for those that want to keep their K&N air filters in tip-top condition! The K&N PreCharger is a specially designed filter wrap made to extend the service interval of your K&N Filter when used in very dusty conditions. They are made from durable polyester material containing uniform micron openings. The PreCharger will stop small dirt particles; yet add little restriction to the airflow of the filter. The PreCharger is designed to be run dry and can be cleaned with K&N Filter Cleaner.
When installing the short ram intake, make sure the battery is unplugged. Before plugging the battery back on, make sure the IAT sensor is connected, otherwise, a check engine light would appear if you forget to plug in the IAT sensor. Resetting the ECU is recommended to erase the existing parameter and refresh itself to the new change. Please refer to the service manual for ECU reset. Like any aftermarket air intake system for the automotive and power sports industry, not recommended to be used in rain.
Sprint Filter Waterproof Air Filter Option: Sprint air filter overall size is a lot larger than the K&N air filter. Since the Sprint Filter is taller than the K&N air filter, depending on your intake placement, you may need to adjust and position the intake to your preference.
Install the coupler onto the throttle body first with the hose clamps positioned to where it's easily accessible.
Transfer the IAT sensor from the OEM airbox to the Chimera Short Ram Intake Tube
Install the Chimera intake tube onto the throttle body coupler, check the breather hose length and cut the breather hose to length (leave a little extra length for adjustments if needed)
Plug in the IAT sensor extension harness.
Fit the air filter onto the Chimera intake tube.
Adjust the position to your preference and then tighten everything up.
