I've read everything I can find about pod filters on dohc bikes, and seems the overwhelming consensus is... don't. So the question is, what next? The '79 bike I purchased has pods on it and "just needs a tune". (valve clearances are a mess, plus that cracked "D" cap, and this post is assuming once I sort that out the pods will be the next hurdle) I don't have the original air box, there's no side panels or covers, and I don't plan on putting any covers on it. Are there any legit alternatives that work? I see there's a cool looking filter from Cognito Moto, but they're also recommending a jetting kit and drilling the slides, so same problems basically. Has anyone made a cooler looking airbox type thing for their bike? If I'm following correctly this engine needs some resistance on the intake side to create enough vacuum to operate the slides. And the stock air box is essentially velocity stacks inside a box with a filter. So can that be recreated with something that wouldn't' look like poop on a bike with no covers? Or maybe putting some distance between the carbs and the filters with intake piping? Or are there any slick ways to install a factory airbox and make it look decent? And on the other end, if I need to buy a carb rebuild kit, jet kit, and a new filter system that could easily be 1/2 the price of just getting new carbs for the bike and I might still not have it right. Cycle X has a sale on a Mikuni setup and I'm wondering if that would save me a lot of future headache, especially if I might consider building a motor to put in this bike.
