From what I have read on the subject they are not good. I really like the way the look but will not run them. They are supposed to be impossible to tune your carbs if you install them. What would you do with the added space anyway?
There are 4 filter kits but they are not cheap, round $100 or so on ebay, you will need to make the bracket yourself though but they need to be supported or your carbs will fall and I've heard of cracking bowls from them swinging down.
Join SOHC.net, they have a ton of info and a lot more technical info than this site when it comes to the vintage stuff. Been amazing for my build. But unless you plan on a cafe racer there really is no point in pods, I do have a friend that runs them inside an airbox on his 350. Very strange, he bought it that way and it is only two cylinder but still odd.
well i am making the bike a hardtail and the airbox will have to be re routed anyway, and i am going to run straight pipes so i suppose i am going to need just about the biggest jets i can get my hands on, but being that it will be a hardtail i am not really worried about it being perfectly in tune because i probably will not have it much over 60 mph. but i am wondering now if i will even be able to run pods and straights, may be very unhealthy for the motor
