as far as the breathers/ac well the breathers work great, there is a little oil mist on the a/c and rocker area, but not bad it wipes right off, and thats only after long/hard rides. otherwise great.
the a/c ... well the quality is ok, the cover is neat. but the paper filter blows, choked my motor effectivley. would have had to jet leaner than factory, i am gonna replace with a taller k&n or something.
Oh hey man, no worries. Thanks so much for the support and encouragement! I just read your post on your thread and replied to you there and then checked my email and saw you replied here as well (maybe next time I should check all my emails!). But so it goes.
I went on a ride down to Anaheim this weekend and the seat felt great and Christa hasn't complained about it either so for now, it' gettin the job done.
The a/c thing had been an on going saga for me. As I am sure you know money is tight, that is why I wanted to go with the Mooneyes a/c, cheap, small and seemed like it would get the job done. I would have loved to get something better like a BCM or Bench*Mark a/c but I don't have around $200 bones to drop on that! Worst part is, my bike runs great as is and I have this feeling I am gonna get a new a/c then choke the shit out of my engine that runs fuckin awesome now. Form over function indeed.
The k&n would be a good idea, would you run it with the mooneyes cover (or would it be too tall and not fit) or would you run it naked? When I tried looking at the k&n's wasn't their a/c going for like around $200 as well? But I guess it is lifetime so I mean......
Good heads up on the hardware. I had read the mooneyes comes with no hardware so I was wondering what people were using. Smart to just change them all while you are at it. I've burn my hand quite a few time doing something stupid and forgetting its hot. By the way, did you have to go shorter or longer on the screws that the stock ones?
Keep me posted and thanks for getting back to me, hear from you soon!
