This 54MM K&N filter does not have the internal shoulder to cause issues with air flow. Will be able to test once bike is back together. I am using flat side panels, so don't know how this filter fits with OEM side panels.


    Had to cock the filter out about 1/16" to clear the choke cable connection. Pointing a phillips head screwdriver at the choke cable connection where the filter
    is cocked out slightly to have enough clearance for the choke to operate properly. The filter still seals fine, too.

    Been testing the CX with these pod filters and it runs fine without issues.

    Flat panel cut out for pod:

    Installed K&N filters along with Mac 2 into 1 exhaust system, 90/120 jets are installed and the bike is running great with good spark plug color.

    Excellent info. I havnt gotten to the starting up stage of my rebuild yet, but i noticed these ports when making some bell mouth filters a while back and made sure to cut notches in them to avoid blocking these ports. thanks for confirming that it was a good idea guys!

    My CX runs great with K&N air filters with 90/120 jets & 2 into 1 exhaust system. Have to admit, Murray's Mikinui Carb kit runs stronger, but I'm OK with the performance of the original carburetor.

    Would this be the same filters others are using just a newer part number? https://www.mikesxs.net/yamaha-xs650...ter-2-1-8.html

    So from what I have researched If I want to change to just pods and remove my air box with stock carbs I need to re-jet my carbs. 90/120 anyone have a link to buy just these jets without buying a whole dealers kit?

    Cool Murray, did not know that. I'm running MikesXS filters now, but my bike is always garaged, so I haven't gotten any rust yet. I will keep your filters in mind if I ever decide I'm sick of the "XS" logos on them...
