Reply To: without airfilter cover / who did that?


If we change the filter to something like the below link don’t we get the same result and protect from dust ingress?


I read in another thread here that the Vitpilen runs lean…(?)

It does backfire on deceleration and like the poster in the other thread I also think it sounds cool, but would prefer that all the fuel is used and my (very basic) understanding of it is a little more air flow will improve combustion…(?)


So either the filter cover removed, or a filter that breaths better may help this.

Please let me know your thoughts, I’m wondering if it’s worth removing the cover/ replacing filter,  removing cat, etc…(But it’s my first nice bike so don’t know what I’m doing tbh…)
