Thanks Pearhead for the link. I saw an Arlen Ness Big Sucker on there that looks kinda like the one I put on my 1600 Classic. I may try that one. On my 1600 I put them on both sides. Does the Classic LT take it on both or just the right side???

Just right side is the air filter.
The left side is the coil cover

OK guys, you haven't steered me wrong yet. I really like the Baron's intake but it is a little pricey. I've found something that's called Arlen Ness Intake Kit specifically for the Classic LT. Considerably cheaper, just not as stylish. I can live with non-stylish for that amount of difference. Anyone else either heard of these or maybe are using them now??

Thus I would like to have one of you supporters explain to me exactly HOW a filter that can flow MORE air into my engine, can do it without also flowing MORE dirt. I can see through a high flow filter, the spaces in the material are VISIBLE to the naked eye. The High flow design filter increases its filter efficiency as it gets dirty, meaning that dirt is trapped on the filter media & reduces the open spaces in the media. Thus a dirty High flow does a better job of cleaning your engines air?, BUT it also reduces it air flow rate as it clogs, so what do we do? WE CLEAN IT , allowing more dirt into the engine.
FYI, it takes only ONE oz of road dust per 100 cubic INCHES of engine, getting through the filter to TOTALLY ruin your engine !!!! That means that if y our V2K's air filter lets 1.25 OUNCES of dust into the engine OVER THE LIFE OF THE ENGINE, its worn internally , beyond acceptable limits !!! Think about it guys!!!!
I have yet to be convinced by filter reps & salespeople , that ANY brand of high flow filter can achieve increased air flow without sacrificing filter efficiency.
Just MY opinion & experience.
I'm thinking along same line as you. I live 3/4 mile down a dirt road and I am not about to change from oem filter. I have changed them , on both bikes but they needed it.
