K&N in the stock air box
UniFilter (going Nekkid)
Thunder Air Intakes (lots of styles) http://www.thundermfg.com/store/inde...oduct_list&c=2
Kuryaykn High Five Intake
Hypercharger

I'm sure there are more. If you search on the site for any of these I'm sure you will find some info on each type.

There is no k&n for the 09, I tried that first. I looked into the baron custom big air, but not very weather resistant. I went with the stealth intake. To me, worth every penny.

Bull Chit..... You WILL gain power without an intake... You just won't gain AS MUCH as you will WITH one....

With the stock air filter in place, your bike Will produce more power with the fuel processor, than without one.

Adding a K&N drop in with the fuel processor will produce more power vs. the stock filter.

Aadding Hypercharger or Stealth intake with the fuel processor will produce more power than a straight drop in K&N.

Gman is in the business of selling you stuff... Of course he's going to tell you otherwise... The more that he can convince you that you NEED stuff for your bike, its money in his pocket.....

The bottom line is you WILL see power gains simply by installing an fuel processor and making no other changes. The gains won't be anywhere near as dramatic as they would, if you were to radically alter your air intake. But there will be power gains, none the less...

Same here - been very happy. As to getting added performance without an aftermarket intake - adding more fuel without more air will get you little if anything. What you have to ask yourself is what are you going for? If you are adding fuel, you want more power, right? Then why not go all the way - get the custom airbox and add pipes. More air in, add more fuel and then let it get out faster = more power. Take any of those out and you reduce your return.

Hyperchargers look cool but still have a choke point unless you are ripping down the interstate - it's basically a scoop. What you want is a bigger hole for the air to get through. You are limited in airboxes and pipes on the 2009, especially if you have O2 sensors. The GMAN Stealth has a good look as is priced better than the Baron, although I like the look of the Baron better. Cobra has pipes and Vance & Hines has a 2/1 that just came out for the 09 C50.

As far as fuel economy - I have a Cobra processor, GMAN Stealth intake and Cobra pipes and still get 45-50 MPG on average.

Good luck.
