Keihin Carb Breathing Question... Open vs Vel Stacks vs Pods...
Carb Breathing Question: Open vs. Velocity Stack Screens vs. Pod Filters?
Background: Running a '08 CARB'ed Bonneville with OEM carb setup. In the next couple of weeks, once it gets warm enough to wrench, I will be switching over to Keihin Racing carbs.
Question: Which is better for breathing and which is "safer" for the bike? Open mouth stacks, velocity screened stacks (the metal type with 3 screens 2 screens of 18x14 mesh + one screen of 200microns) or regular K&N pod filters?
I am NOT looking to swap KN out for uni or anything like that. Just advise from the three options given.
Lets hear what you say and back it up with some facts...
I ride the bike, not the spec sheet.
