Food for thought....why are stock airbox systems and setups like this perferred on two strokes over straight pod filters? Well the principle of a two stroke is based on exhaust reversion pulling in the fresh intake charge into the combustion chamber and holding it there. If you have pod filters the reversion will bounce against the back plate of pod (the round plate at the top of the filter) and then reverse the direction of reversion pushing some of the intake charge back out the exhaust. On a street bike the effect is negligible but on highly tuned drag bikes and snowmobiles the effect can cause a break down of the barrier layer and eventually a hole in the piston due to the lean condition. On high performance two strokes like the kawasaki triple pod filters often make the carbs harder to tune partly due to this condition. If you have to run pods the best to run ar the tapered since the top plate is the smallest and the filter dampens most of the reversion.

Do you have a title for it? can it be made street legal or is it race only (don't care about lights or signals, is it some weired compression that requires race gas or can it run off pump)? Are those DG pipes?
