    Have any of you tried using UNI pods? I ordered one of Murray's Mikuni sets and I'm going to use a pair of black, foam-covered, oiled UNI pods instead of the tapered pods with visible pleating, like EMGO pods....the tapered pods do look cool, but how well do they actually filter? I want to keep fine dust out of my engine, not just mosquito-sized debris.....

    What filters did you acquire? Are they pods? I too purchased Murray's kit and will be on the hunt for better pods.

    I got filters that are called Mikes XS. I think they are stock filters on a Yahmaha or something. 15-0027 is the part number. Hopefully they fit after carb install.

    I too am considering the sock filter.

    I talked to Murray about these filters on the phone today. He said, yes they work and they work well, BUT----you will get some blow back from the carbs every once in a while which sends gas onto the foam. In his experience the gas can eat the foam up. If you buy them let me know how it goes.

    MikesXS is a site that sells XS650 performance parts. That's the guy that sells the Mikuni kit for the XS650, fyi.

    Well the filters that I got are not the same ones as the pods in a previous post 9 and 10. These actually remind me of a K&N filter. What excites me is the size of then and the fact that I can oil them if I want to, which I more than likely will.

    I removed my filters and the large rubber ring that I was going to Dremel down to size, but then looked again. As I placed only the rubber ring back on the carb, with out the filer to clearly see what was being blocked I viewed they do not block the ports. They are at least a 1/4 inch away and the diameter isn't small enough to block the port even if it was up against them. I left it as is. I'll run the engine (eventually) and see how it performs. If it seems like it needs attention, maybe I'll alter it at that time.

    if you have a 650 it makes a much larger difference as they need more air on a 500 with mikunis it only makes a big diff above 8500-9000



    a 650 it will effect above 7500-8
