Dam! i hate the airbox removal! Can you suggest emgo´s pods?

Im seariously getting tired to remove the airbox and carbs. it seams even if i change my oil, i need to take them ****ers off
I have the regular k&N filter to fit on the airbox, but last season when i bought new airbox i didnt want to brake the airbox to get the k&N filter in. Now i m thinking im going to open it, like some threads say how to. Becouse i need to access the carbs to chance the speedo cable. So now im thinkin should i just buy emgos pod filters, becouse they are far more cheaper than K&N pods. Or should i just open the airbox and put the regular K&N airfilter in ??
Iv read about the side winds that affect the breathing. Is it a real problem or just superficial. And i know very little about screwing mixtures. Don`t have the tool also.

Jannari: If you switch to pods, either K&N or Emgos, you will have to rejet the carbs. The jetting also depends on the exhaust system your TBS has. Pods of either kind make life much easier when it comes to maintenance. tommyturbo2

So rejetting means i need to chance main jets or all?

I have stock jets i suppose. Meriden thriumphs exhaust. If i look inside they arent strait trough like raask. I had raask minizoom allso but bike runs the same eather way. with meredien or raask. the meriden exhaust are just perfect becouse they are not so loud. Just about 96 db. Just chanced dynojet needles last autum over a year ago. Did that becouse i had engine bogging from 2500 to 4000 when i accelerate fast. So it doesnt happen if i open the gas little by little. This needle chance helped at spring and on summer, but now the bogging began again, at the end of authum when it was about 41 Fahrenheit. 5 degree celsius.

The reason last winter i didnt chance main jets also with the needles, was that i screwed up the screws ( just one) but ended it there. Tried only the needles and with k&N filter. worked on autum last year with that setup. Then i decided to order a new airbox becouse the previous owner had busted the airbox. And now i know why ( propably had k&N fitted in)
So when i got the new airbox i saw that it isnt ment to be opened. So i decided to try it on with the setting original airbox and dynojet needles. It worked on summer but then started to bog again.

Little about my bikes History!
When i bought the bike 2 summers ago. It had the bogging when i bought it. I took the bike strait for carburetor clean. This guy really thoroughly cleaned it with all the **** it had, becouse of the lack of use. I tried the bike then and he said that the Vacuum diaphragms had Expanded a little. He said problem would go away if they are chanced. But it will cost a lot since he wanted 520 € for the cleaning. Now i have asked many mechanics and they havent heard of so called expanded Vacuum diaphragms just torn ones.

Anyway The thing is here. I managed to get rid of the bogging with a simple dynojet needle chance. But on autum it started again. Maybe even worse. What to do?

I have the carbs out now becouse im chancing the throttle cable. And now im thinking of chancing the main jets to what dynojet suggested on the manual and maybe putting the k&n filter in the airbox. I cant remember now what they suggested but ill go for the jets that i need to put if i have afermarket ( open) exhaust and k&N filter.

Ill think ill make an own thread for this one too I just pour my heart out... hope you understood what i tried to write.

So today i chanced the main jets to dynojet 104 and have the dynojet needles in. So dynojet stage 1 is installed. And mixture screws are 2,5 open. I did this becouse dynojet says that if you have k&n fitted and louder pipes then use 104 main jets. When i turned the pilot screws 2,5 turns i saw that the left hand side carb closed in different position than the middle and right hand side. Could it be that the pilot screw is broken and all this engine bogging could be the reason from that. Or that im just plain wrong becouse i dont have any experience on these things? And i just need to tune them after the carbs are on?

So lets say everyhing is fine and now lets think what airfilter i need to use and what to do with that airbox. If i use the stock airbox how to open it and if i use pods, is there more to be done with those carbs?

Are you sure you turned the pilot screws? If you are turning the sync screws instead, then the throttle plates will change...

The pilot screws were good. just thinking now that if the 104 mains are going to be too rich. Im going to use the airbox with k&N filter. With no holes on it. Can you give me a link to airbox splitting. i cant find it!!!
