Default Takeda Cold Air Intake on 2018 RC

Hi everyone!

I am pretty new here after lurking for a few months, but I had a question regarding a mod purchase I made recently. Has anyone tried putting a takeda intake on a 2018 RC350? Their website says that it fits any RC model including 2019s, but I cannot figure out how to mount the air filter and heat shield. The holes don't seem to line up anywhere. Any input would be greatly appreciated. I have the dry filter version (TR-2015P-1D).

Did you buy used or new?

New should have come with installation instructions. If used, you can get it off their website. They're helpful and straightforward.

I've installed their intake on a GS, RC, and IS with no issues.

Same here, put it on my 2016 RC with no issues. The instructions help if you are not inclined for this type of stuff but even without it, it should be a straight forward install. Pictures of it not lining up would help.

Did this on my 15' rc. Its a fairly simple install, just use the online installation manual if you need help with assembly or installation.

I did buy it new, and I also got the PDF manual from the AFE website. Good to know that it's probably just me making some small mistake lol. I'll give it another go and see what I can do.
