    K&N filter brackets

    For those using this filter, what did you make the mounting brackets from. What size material and so on?

    So, there isn't a direct way to go from Picassa to RSC? Somehow, I just knew that was going to be the case... to which I said the heck with it... it's just a bunch of BS. I can't stand 'modern' technology... it aggravates the heck out of me! And, I generally do not care... if it isn't simple enough for me... it's not simple enough....

    I got it fastened just with the hose clamp. I had the 66V (round one) before with brackets and always had issues sealing around the carb mouth. I have since purchased the same one above and have never had any issues with it holding on. Its real light so cant be a problem pulling down on the carb.

Then the other ends of the aluminum bolted to the upper two original holes in the engine cylinders.
    Good idea!
    I used that same sealant to secure a wire from my over head lights on my truck to the edge of the window trim. Only used a couple of tabs of sealant. It has been secure for four years thru many touchless car washes and up to 80 mph on the highway. It's some good stuff!!

That way I could avoid any mishaps with something getting into the carb. I'm just looking for some extra support on the filter so not to pull of the carb. Opinions?

    I'd post a picture, but I can't figure out how to get a picture from Picassa to here............
    Save the pic to your computer and then upload to the RSC.

    1/8”x 3/4” aluminum strap. The one on the left/rear of the filter has a spacer between it and the cylinder. Some folks just bend the strap instead.

    I don't believe so. I got it from him over 4 years ago. Never saw him around much after that.

    I have one of the brackets that Roadiedude used to make. It's one piece of stainless that's polished. The filter neck goes through a hole in the center of the bracket. The bracket then has two holes, one on each side of the main hole for screws to mount the bracket to the back of the filter. I used Phillips head pan screws and wingnuts. I reversed the wing nuts so that the wings would go against the rubber backing as I used a screwdriver to tighten them up. Has worked great against vibration so far. Then the hole thing is held on to the motor with the filter hose clamp and the top two factory aircleaner mounting locations and factory bolts .
    Is he still around?

    I made mine from 1/8” x 1” flat. I bolted it to the front head and back of the air cleaner. I used a nylock lock nut but it still worked loose and found its way in to my front cylinder and caused damage that’s still haunting me. It’s been fine with no bracket ever since.
