Just posted this reply in the 'new trixters' section but thought I should post here as well:

Intake runners you have me interested! do you mean the gs intake rubber hoses from the air box to the injector bodies?
If so i have a feeling they won't fit [shame as it was something i have looked into]
Hope this help's Dai
Dai - I've just returned from a 100 mile loop around some favourite mountain roads - first time out with the new choobs:
All I can say is WOW !!! What a transformation. Different bike.
I'll go into more detail later when I find where to post pics, but the GS runners can be fitted very easily and you'd never know to look at the bike.
Power delivery: Engine will trickle down smoothly to <2000 rpm, then begins noticeable acceleration passing 2500, and once past 3000 drives strongly to 7000, with a bags of torque from 3500 to 6000. No surging.
On deceleration the engine braking is smooth a la japanese fours, meaning that when rolling into/accelerating out of switchback and hairpin turns the bike feels much more precise, and without the need for shifting at awkward moments.
Whoever would have thunk this could happen with such a cheap and simple change?
Best start ever to 2013.
Whoo bloody hoo .... yeee haaaaaa =D
PS: I fitted Lennie's InDuct a while ago, so my observations are purely of the changes resulting from fitting the GS runners.
