What is it to punch the air box? I was thinking about drilling some large holes, in the top and putting some screen there. Will this do any thing benifitial? Thanks

Sounds like it is something that may do more harm than good. This type of mod is trying to mimick the cone filter used with fuel injected cars. Problem is that most bikes are designed with Ram Air, which would be ineffective if you punch a bunch of holes into the air box. Another issue is that the holes would be sucking in Hot air from the engine. You definetly want to be pulling in colder air as it is more dense than hot air.

You don't want to mess with the airbox if you want your bike to run right. Poking holes in it will eliminate the ram air for sure which amounts to about 10 hp or so above 120 mph.
