nope and nope , if you want the noise then you need to get rid of the air box and put a pod filter or similar on generally. If you do it right you can have the benifit of a k&n filter, cold air induction and the noise.

re

I'd have to disagree with you james.....

If you dont want to screw around with makind the pod sit in the right place and so on, just get a panel filter and chuck it in the box without the airbox lid. Hold the filter in place with sum bull dog clips and fill any gaps with silicon (so you dont suck up dirt between wall of airbox and filter) this way you get the sweet noise with the least hassle.

Re: re

but thats not what he asked. of course putting a pod filter on without the airbox lid will make the noise. but he wants to just put a k&n filter inside the airbox. he didnt say anything about pod filters.

filter

does removing the air filter box and replacing it with a pod filter increase power, how does it work better than the air box when it doesnt have a snorkle???

Air filters



Do you have to re tune the motor if you change to a pod filter?? I am keen to do it and the hassle is no worry. I just wanna know what the hidden things that need to be done are before i get there, do it, and the ****er won't run properly.

Cheers
