just curious and thought about this for a while, why don't we just use pod filters directly on the throttle bode/velocity stacks? That was the setup I used on my 2000 sv650 with a lifted front tank about an extra 3/4" to help with airflow in. Seems it would save much more weight and no air box needed.
The answer to my own question that I can come up with is maybe too much heat and or no filter will fit? any ideas or clarification.
