Yes, but as I said - this isn't my daily rider- or long hauler, it's a wknd spinner.


And to be honest, I don't see how my K&N (stock) airbox filter will be any cleaner an intake than a set of K&N pods.....

If someone can tell me why it's actually worse functionally I'm all ears. If it's a question of air volume comparisons, the carbs can be adjusted fairly easily to accommodate.
