I've ridden ten's of thousands of kilometers on bikes with pods filters, in very windy places, and I have never noticed any sensitivity to crosswinds. I even use to have them on my BMW airhead, right out in the rain and wind, and never had the slightest problem.ur2silly said:there is a problem though because if the bike is in a crosswind, the filters being exposed, will effect performance.
Yes, you need tank spacers to make them fit. I ran a set from Spears (www.spearsenterprises.com ) for a while, and yes that crosswind thing is bogus. The Spears ones are about $50 a set I think. Zoran knows the part numbers from Tucker Rocky, I used to have them, but lost them.wonderjosh said:ok, next question.
can i just buy some pod filters, remove the airbox, and attached the pods?
OR do i have to buy some stupid kit that costs over $200
I had no problem with weather.I raced in rain with pods and flatslides(no filters).if you have upper fairing and moving forward you will get no water under tank.only way it will come in is front wheel splashes some up.Northwind said:The only downsides I've heard of were with regard to all-weather use... I've seen a fair few reports (with other bikes) complaining of bad performance in really wet weather. Anyone confirm or deny? It's something I've always discounted but maybe it would bear closer exaination...
you can not plug them.it would build pressure inside motor.route them under seat or somewhere and put bottle there,like catch can,so oil mist goes in bottle.yellow650 said:what kind of stuff wil li have to do with the 'oil tubes' that come into the airbox (2 of 'em). how much oil comes out of those. could i just clamp the ends of those tubes? or would that make them blow off. don't really want to have them open near my tires. i forgot to put them back into the airbox once and was rewarded with oil all over the upper engine and carbs.
2 5/8 I believe.sprint_9 said:Does anyone know what the filter would need for an inner diameter to mate up to the SV carbs properly, or what the SV carbs have for a outer diameter for the intake on the carbs?
