I looked at getting a Kuryakyn Corsair filter, but at £300 here in the UK I couldn't justify the price. Managed to pick one up off ebay for £80, only problem was it was off a Harley softail. Made up a nylon manifold, an Aluminium adaptor plate and two support struts, total cost £10.00 Pleased with the result, I have a spare plate so I can fit pretty much any filter now.

2-Vulcan did a very nice DIY intake for his 1500 - you can probably find it in the 1500 forum. Good Luck !

intake

Poncho, with your brake mod and those dual pipes, it hides the brake cylinder. Makes it almost invisable. Intake wasn't too bad, maybe a few cans. The reworked swing arm and brake cylinder were close to a keg.

thats nice. I will probably go with something that style.............unless I can get a tunnel type to look right ie....hurricane or tornado.

I really like the thunder hurricane alot. Had one on my VTX...I just will not pay that ever again

heres where I got thee aircleaner from. They are $66 plus shipping. I made a sheet metal adapter, riveted it on to the back side of the k&N, then bolted it on. This come with the larger 3" filter. I initially used that one, but switched to the thinner 1.5"
