Air cleaner and filter

Has anyone ever installed an aftermarket air box / air cleaner and filter something that does not require adjustment of the carb?

You'll be hard pressed to find an aftermarket air filter that doesn't increase airflow, which would mean you would need to re-jet the carb. I'd say unless you're trying to milk a bit more horsepower out of your bike just stick with the OEM filter. Increased airflow means the bike would be running lean, which is definitely not a good thing for our bikes.

Never argue with a fool: onlookers may not be able to tell the difference.
