The conical Pod filters are pretty common through parts unlimited, tucker rockey, and m/c shop or dealer who uses those companies for aftermarket supply.quote:
i've noticed all the cool kids have the conical air filters on their hondas, what do you call those? where do i get me some?
The emgo pod filters are a paper element so if they get wet they are useless and need to be pitched. If the K&N's get wet the oil used to lube the filter pretty much keeps a lot of the water out. However riding the bike while it is raining poses a whole new problem and that is rain water getting sucked into the engine. I suppose it is possible to hydrolock a motor from the rain water coming in (I have never heard of it happening) it is just plain not good for the engine to be sucking in water. Some guys build a shroud out of aluminum to cover the top and sides but you kind of lose the effect you were after and that was having two cool looking pods sticking out of the engine. Of course if you make it removable then you only loose that on rainy days.quote:
what happens when filters get wet? i live in seattle so yeah... that'd be an issue.
I run uni-filters on my t500. They don't look as cool as pods (unless you like the ratted out racer look). They work great except the water problem when it is raining is much worse because they are essentially a sponge in front of your carb. I went up one jet size in the carbs and it worked great.quote:
What about uni filters? Anyone ever run those? I've got a CB360T and been tossing the idea around about pod filters aswell. I've run uni's on lots of vespas and they've always seemed pretty good. I'd potentionaly be running these filters with stock pipes for now. Waste of time or what? If I did run them with stock pipes, do you think I'd need to re-jet? Maybe just go up a notch on the needle only???
