Someone on one of the Facebook groups had one recently that was 3D-printed. The materials used were spec’d beyond any temps the motor would produce in that area. Not sure who it was, might have been McLean Racing.

Yes, it’s a mate of John McLeans that can make them.

There’s a thread on the GSX1400 Alternative Gathering Point Facebook page.

He’s not doing them at the moment but maybe again in the future.

That looks a beast, does it say 1,700 on the side?

Yes, 1700.  :worshippy: I believe it is for a drag racer.

Guys - can we keep on topic please, this thread is a stickied HOW TO thread about pod filters.

All interesting about John McLeans dragster, but can I suggest a separate topic if you wish to discuss it.

Thanks

My airpods arrived today so I fit them up to the engine. Im not sure if I missed something or mine are different to what others use, but they fit up quite easily (very tight together) .

 There is a difference of opinion as to wether I will need to dyno tune or not, can anyone give a definitive answer?
 Thanks
Andrew

The "definitive answer" will be what you do.

A dyno run to see if dyno tuning is needed is my answer :)

Well... I took my bike for its first run with the pod filters today (or I tried to).
 The bike started easily, but as soon as I backed off throttle the engine stalled (going downhill). Every time I came to a stop the bike stalled. Once it was going it seemed ok, I only went to about 3500rpm in 2nd as I was only in the back streets around my home.
 So now I have 3 options, 1-try to refit the original airbox with the engine in the bike (serious modifications will be needed), 2- remove engine and refit airbox, 3-buy power commander and get it dynotuned $$$$$...
 No 1 it is going to be. I will update tomorrow with my progress, or lack of.

Try resetting the tickover and/or adjusting the throttle cables first. On my K7, I found when I first got it, that if I backed off approaching junctions the engine would cut, basically the throttle cables were out of adjustment. Adjusted them as per the handbook for slack and all was good
