is it carby or EFI?
EFI you need to get an adapter thing to go onto the air flow meter.. carby it wont go on without poking out the bonnet, unless you get a carb hat and run piping down to behind the headlight.. :unsure:

i wouldnt bother, putting a pod onto the end of the trumpet of your existing air filter would just mean the air would have to go through 2 filters instead of one..
why not get one of the big circle, flat air filters and bolt it onto the carby instead of the whole enclosed black one?

yeah, putting a pod on the snout of your air cleaner is just going to restrict your air flow even more from standard...
If carby, either use a sports air cleaner on to of your carb, or try the cold air intake setup off the 173 VH commies...

Exhaust is the way to go for some sound, or a nice lumpy cam...
