I'm guessing what your asking is the difference between keeping the stock uni-filter in the airbox...or eliminating the airbox and using pod filters...( the pod filters are k&n's )

I wouldnt swear to it but I think you can get a filter similar to a K&N for the airbox...( I got a airbox elim kit almost right after getting the bike )...

I think the pod filter's allow more airflow, as you'll notice most guy's with airbox removal kit's are jetted heavier than guy's with mod's done to their airboxes.

Either way you'll flow more air...and need to rejet.

I meant which is better between the 2 filters they offer on Newbonnieville.com.

The K&N Cone Filters....

or the Uni-Pod Filters.

Either of those filters will require quite a bit of air box modification....you are aware of that?

If you want an OEM replacement UNI filter, and a modified cover to enhance air flow, I'll pass on the slightly used, but PERFECT speciman sent to me from Scotland by JohnyC.

All I ask, is that in return, you send me the stock air filter cover off your bike, so that I can open it up for the next guy.

JohnyC started this, "passing it forward," and as best possible, I'd like to continue it.

Gray, the offer is on the table, if you don't want it, it will be there for the next poster. I would have used it myself, but received a K&N for Christmas from the S.O.

Whoa.....
johnyC enlisted my participation in a "pass it on" mind-set as well. I have since done the same for others, and said energy has recently visited itself upon me two-fold, most recently via the Yamaha community I participate in.

"Higher powers", "reciprocating energies", whatever it is......
it IS warm and fuzzy. And to think that a Monza gas cap (in my case) was the catalyst.
:cool:

Thanks, Universally......

Yeah, I plan on cutting down my Airbox. I guess I can go with the Uni-Pods if there is no real advantage of going with the K&N's. Thanks.

I'm in the process of the airbox mod and went with the Uni's. Just wanted to try something different from K&N for once and $35 for a set of Uni's doesn't hurt my poor college student income much.

If you don't want to butcher or eliminate your airbox K&N makes a direct replacment that fits right in there. That and a N.H. bellmouth will flow a lot more air than stock but still give the filter some weather protection.
