About MNNTHBX Mtake (Intake kit) for the 2022+ Honda Monkey
MNNTHBX Mtake (Intake kit) for the 2022+ Honda Monkey The new 5 speed Monkey engine is extremely tight on intake space, and nearly impossible to get more traditional intake designs out of. For this reason, we switched to a full 6061 billet aluminum design. It allowed us to design some smart performance features into the runner. The tool path step-over is large internally, for some flow straitening help. The inlet under the filter is tapered for smooth air transition. At the throttle body, our intake runner ramps to the OEM throttle body keyhole shape, smoothing flow and increasing velocity when compared to normal tube or pipe style designs. Choose your filter style, available in our MNNTHBX black round filter, or up the style with the optional colored DNA filters (same performance either way). One huge advantage of the over-the-top design, as it avoids placing the intake runner out beside the hot exhaust header like most others. Unlike other intakes, we design our units to purposely eliminate the AT sensor and crank vent return from the intake runner to streamline flow and increase performance. The AT sensor now mounts in an accurate and protected location on top of the intake runner, and a Uni crankcase filter is included to routes that return away from the intake. What are the drawbacks of this design? Cost is one. We've got this priced as low as is possible, but there's no escaping the fact that 3D milling on large pieces of billet runs the price up compared to our other intakes. It is what it is in that regard... Also, while it required no modification or special tools to install, it will require a friend and some patience. We had to use every last bit of space, so everything is a bit tedious to get to for the fat fingered set. Price starts at $225 for the MNNTHBX round filter and $265 for coloured DNA filters. Optional prefilters are available for those who plan to ride in extra wet or messy conditions... Scroll down to watch an install video.
