  • Air Filters

    Can anyone tell me what airfilters fit the throttle bodies? I want to put seperate filters inside a custom airbox. Also what is the smallest lightest headlight you can get?

    I was always told that it's best to have the most filtered air you can possibly have in your airbox. Wouldn't filters directly over your throttle bodies defeat that?

    Can't you filter the air on it's way in? Filters over the ram air ducts?

    Not trying to be an ass, you do have the sweetest TL ever

        Once you have the OD of the throttle body you'll find plenty of pod filters available. http://www.knfilters.com/ http://www.knfilters.com/universal/universal.htm

        or

        Headlights?

        The smallest would be a diy 50W halogen or something similar.

          I ran a dry media across the floor of the box 1" or 1 1/2" material synthetic that I got from the local air filter manufacturers check your yellow pages for industrial filters and see what they have. As to a headlight a Pia self contained 35w or 55w would be the smallest and lightest.

            If you look in the performance section and look at the thread on after market airbox solutions I posted a pic of a German bike that I followed on mine.

              Air Filter

              For my purposes right now I just want the eaisest filter set up to start with. When I am satisfied with the seal of the airbox I will look a differnt arrangement. What ever I do it will be a custom set up . There is nothing that will just bolt in.

                Everything Art does is a custom setup and a delight to behold. Hopefully more pics will be coming. I am going through withdrawls.

                  Now that is a good idea. Has anyone tried this?

                          Just for everyones information on my airbox the entire throttlebody assembly is inside the airbox. The airbox size is 22L. This is one of the things that is neat about the frame. I know that putting fuelcell foam in the ramair system is the best way to do it. But I may want to do seperate filters on the throttlebodies untill I am happy with the total airbox seal.
