    I have a drilled out airbox you're welcome to if you'll pay postage plus a cup of coffee or so. 

    Shoot me a PM.  I'll get some photos tonight.

    Just to report I had installed the taller stacks earlier in June and immediately noticed the effects.  Better performance down low and at lower throttle openings.  It's got a little more growl now and it reduced of the vibes in my footpegs in the 4500-5500 rpm range.  I subsequently went on an 8500 km. trip out west, varying conditions and elevation changes... very pleased.

    Experience is a great teacher, she gives you the tests first and the lessons later.

    Sorry for my slowness, but why do you think they have different sizes?

    So will this 2013 z1000sx airbox have the two taller stacks for this mode?

    I bought a similar age airbox to the one you are considering.

    Photo shows internals, original and the used airbox

    I understand the velocity stack principal and having all four the same height, does it make much of a difference without the holes drilled in or is that a nessesary?

    I changed out the shorter stacks to the longer ones, at the same time that I had my ECU re-flashed by Steve at Shoodaben Engineering. I figured that the longer stacks would be icing on the cake. No disappointments whatsoever, and the benefits of the longer stacks are factual, based upon Steve's testing. He has nothing regarding performance benefits of putting holes in the airbox. From my own perspective, I can't see where the holes would yield much performance-wise considering the air intake design of the Versys'.
