    After reading multiple posts regarding pods and jetting and carbs etc.... I came across comments in the “carb swap” forum by murrayf regarding the air flow restrictions we can expect to experience by using pods. I went out and took mine off to see what the excitement was about and found the following. Perhaps all you all knew this, I’m just a little slow at times.











    I modified my pods as noted in the photo, it made a substantial difference in performance running 125/90 jets in stock Keihin carbs, straight pipes and no pre-chamber (H-Box).

    First I sanded the chrome with 100 grit to put some tooth on the steel surface, then I used JB Weld which held good on the steel but it didn't hold to the rubber. So I used Gorilla Glue which so far seems to be holding firm.

    Oh, I also cut away approximately 1/8" of the filter end cap ID with tin snips to open it up even more.

    Could you just remove the portion of the rubber that covers the ports to eliminate the need for glue?

    the metal also occludes the port from getting the best sensing so wide open near the port is better



    larry and i have known about this for a long time (me for over 25 years lol) and we just mod a mark the pods so we know where the cutaway is to install them



    as larry is way more detailed than i am he is going to modify some for a bike he is working on now and document the way he does it and post it

    I just received my pods yesterday, http://www.mikesxs.net/product/15-0152.html



    I slipped them on, tightened them up, and stood back at their beauty. Then this morning I see this post. UGH! I'll have to go back home tonight and see if this brand also cover up these ports and such.
