Hey guys, I just finished doing this mod, it looks great. I have the filter mounted straight on, no 90. The only thing I'm trying to figure out is if there is a way to quiet down the whistling sound at idle from those 3 holes near the bottom. At idle it's crazy loud, really takes away from the cobra swepts I have on the bike. I thought about putting a 90 on it to see if that helps, but I really like the flush look. Anyone have any thoughts?

Not with the intake sucking like a hoover through the tiny (idle?) air holes!
Its pretty darn loud, and right below my ear.
I am guessing because I have the open filter all the way around and nothing really blocking the sound like intakes you would buy.

Mr. Groove actually mentioned that this bothered him as well and was thinking of developing something for it. Maybe hit him up.

Hmm. I was thinking of something like that, but maybe on the inside, under the filter. Maybe a shield that goes around those 3 holes and diverts the noise down.... if they only didn't suck so darn hard.... :yuck:

I meant, instead of having a shield on the outside of the filter like you have, having a smaller shield inside, sort of across the middle... below the butterflies, but above the 3 loud holes and have it curve down so the 3 loud holes are mostly surrounded, except for the bottom so they can get air, but most of the sound will be directed down and muffled. Hmmm... now I have the squirrels churning... I will see what I can come up with this weekend..

I have a Red/Chrome air filter and breather for anybody wanting to do this mod. I have a Pay-It-Forward Parts thread in the classified section. You could go from a $57 DIY mod to a $15 DIY mod.
