Inspired by the G56 filter, I sketched this on CAD
[Linked Image]

Should be fairly easy to make, for existing factory covers.

This is good work. I am not trying to cast aspersions in any way here. Morgan Motors chose this design in order to pass certain EPA emissions tests regarding noise levels and the easiest way was to choke off the engine air. Part of the problem was the noise from the incoming air flow. I replaced the stock hockey puck as the engine couldn't breathe properly, in my estimation. No regrets. Far easier to just replace the air cleaner housing with something that allows air to flow.

I chose the 'Muscle Air Cleaner' from S&S and it has worked like a champ!

As for water ingress and driving in the rain that has not been an issue. The S&S rain shield fabric wrapped around the air cleaner filter does a very good job in removing, or reducing, the size of the water droplets entering the inlet so that is not an issue.

Final thought. The stock filter cover is a crappy design and deserves to be shelved. There are others out there that work quite well and don't need to be machined anew!


What's your mileage? Who cares. Is it practical? See #1. What happens when it rains? You get wet.

Do you really need the "scoop"? Just opening up the filter cover underneath might do the job! Mr Heath Robinson would likely just make 2 slits joined with another slit at the front and bend it down to create a scoop... wonder if anyone has any old covers they don't want so I can give some mods a try? wink

I would think a scoop that gathered air from all around the cover equally would distribute the air more evenly into the mesh of the cleaner and then into the cone that is present in the S&S Stealth air cleaners. BTW, the Stealth cleaner works very well performance wise.

the G56 cover also has a larger inside diameter than stock thereby opening more flow. Like Michael it is an air flow problem.

Geez, just unrestrict the intake (S&S Muscle Cover) and remove the cats/baffles and the bike runs like a champ!
