push fit air filters

Anyone any experience with these?

I am deciding between the original setup
which I personally find cumbersome or
the simpler push type?

What are the downsides? Jetting?

Thanks in advance.

Happy winter riding!!

Ed.

Assuming that you have Mk2 carbs and a parallel head then you may have problems fitting different filters. Whatever you fit, the jetting may be changed - it depends on the filter.

You can (I think) fit TSS rubbers that kick the carbs out - splayed head style.
Then you could fit K&Ns or whatever.

There's a K&N, specified for the Norton Commando and 6-cylinder Triumph TR sports cars. I've heard it can be fitted to a T140E

I use it on my T110 with twin MkI Amals on parallel ports.

Looks like this:

there's not much room between the carbs as the OIF is in the way

The filter dimensions will be on K&N's pages.
