2005 c50 air filter cover

Love the bike, but that air filter cover is awful. I find the shape unattractive. Ive heard that if I change this too much, it will cause issues with the FI. Im not looking for a performance change, just cosmetic.
Is there any simple air covers out there. I saw one with an eagle on it, but its the same shape.

I changed mine out with an air cleaner off an M50............much better looking in my opinion.

Lead, or follow, but just stay out of my way.

That is a way better look! Couldn’t seem to find one for sale though. Found one through an own dealer and it was like $300!

I got mine off this site but eBay usually has some also.

The search begins! Thanks!
Is it just the cover and the lower box that needs to be swapped, or are other parts required?
