Triple carb filter

Morning all. Let me start by saying that I did not do the build for my bike.

I was wondering if anyone has ever converted the carbs to a single air filter for all three carbs? I have three single pods on atm but like the look of a single filter the same as they do for the the the two into one on some of the straight fours.

I don't have the original airbox for this bike unfortunately.

Just go on Bike Bandit and get the stock airbox stuff. I was surprised at how reasonably priced it all was. I hope you're in North America though

The original air box for my Legend cost me $35 including the filter (and that was at the dealer) and you will need the rubbers and clamps to connect to the carburetor air horns, but after almost 20 years of playing with these T-3 engines I think they really run better with an air box. Mine is a bit modified, but it is still there. ...J.D.

Single filters are cool, I chopped the box off the original airbox.
Same thing mr martini did on his specials like the Charlie.
Makes cleaning the filter easy.
