Red face K&N carb mounted air filter.

Hi,
I was wondering does anyone happen to know the model number for the largest filter that'll fit under a 2001 VL800 tank. At the moment I'm running a cut down RAMAIR foam filter and I was wanting to experiment with a K&N tapered cone filter, maybe even an oval one to maximise flow? I'd appreciate any help!
Cheers.

The only thing that I know for sure that works is the unifilter. I don't know of anyone who successfully got anything else to fit.

Just an fyi. There's no performance gain by going to a K&N over what you have now.

Hey,
Thanks for the info. The main constraint seems to be the height, with the limited space between the carb and petrol tank base, but I think there's some room for increasing the surface area in the width. As you say it probably won't bring any gain but hey, it keeps me out the pub.
Cheers.

It doesn't do your carb any good as the k&n does a terrible job of filtering the incoming air.
