We are the guys that fit these to the bobber and other 1200s. We will also be testing some new filters from sprint filters. They work fine, flow plenty of air. If getting rid of airbox, go with Long, if keeping go with short

Hey guys can you get rid of the air box yet still keep the side covers?

Since the connect directly to the air boxes, I'm not sure that's possible.

Answer is no but you could use pod filter And leave the air box in place if you would like.

I tried to use Free Spirits high flow kit with the tube, etc on my Bobber. I will tell you that they are expensive as ****, fit like crap and totally unsafe as your knees hit the filters and your feet get pushed out and cant properly use the shifter or rear brake. I sent everything back except the filters (they were jerks on refunding my stuff - never doing business with them), but here is a pic of how ended up using only the filters on the throttle bodies. All I had to do was trim some of the stock airbox. I think it looks pretty good.

Those K&N pods look tiny. Doesnt look like they have near the surface area as the stock filter inserts.

I suspected that and therefore never got them. I am now researching other options to get parts for it in Norway.

After hearing the trouble you had with the Free Spirits kit Im glad the price scared me off , which Is why I fabricated my own . Nice job on the side cover by the way .
