Cool, I just ordered one for myself. My Wife likes the look of the air cleaner and doesnt want me to change it, so this is the perfect alternative. Thanks again for the great ideas you have posted on the forum- Whats Next?

You can never go wrong with a K&N air filter. Check out ebay for Stryker accessories. I was suprized to see so many already!!

I went one step beyond changing to the K&N Filter yesterday. I took the air filter housing off and cut out the back lower portion and entry tube to open it up and let more air in . Can't even tell I did it with housing reinstalled-BUT WOW_- now there is a Sweet Rumble from the the air cleaner when you get on it. Accents the CAT removed exhaust perfectly. And the performace is much better with no bad side effects. Even raised front wheel slightly off ground a few times at takeoff. I am no wheelie rider- but someone that knew what they were doing could easy pull one off!!

I was told No, and I guess they are right, because I have no adverse effects. I was a little worried when I cut open rear of air box, but no problems.

The stock air filter actually will flow almost as effectively as the K&N,
but the K&N is Washable / Lifetime whereas the stocker is a throw away filter.

I have no issues with my K&N and the stock fuel map. Putting in a K&N is generally the first addition to all of my vehicles.

HEHEHE, Well I get my first service tomorrow and when I get back home- I will remove the air cleaner and take pics for yall. You will all truly love the sound of the air cleaner as much as the exhaust. Now I have only removed my CAT and not drilled or removed baffles. I dont have any fuel processor problems, but those of you that have done more extensive Exhaust mods may need one.
