  • To bak or not bak

    I've been running barons bak on my 06 forever. It's been great but thinking of taking another direction. Maybe with one of the kn 1080 or 66v type filters for a different look. Anyone have any experience going that direction? Risks? Rewards?

    Probably wont notice anything at all if all mods are done to you intake (carb if applies). I have had 2 different k&n filters are it ran the same. Was thinking of buying a bak similar to your but kept my money. Haha

      The carb is jetted for the BAK and cobra slash cuts. so I guess my biggest concern is whether or not the other filters would deliver similar air flow.

        Yes you are correct. I have the RC 1980 I do believe and before was the RV-066 i think it was (round). You would need to look for one with a 2 1/2” inlet if you want to swap out. Nothing wrong with changing things up. I have had both just clamped on with hose clamp supplied. Some have used brackets. The filter alone weighs near nothing and clamp holds on pretty good. Do a search you will find other part numbers for other filters.

          I have a fuelie, so rejetting isn’t necessary, but I change occasionally. Currently I have the round KN that is 3” thick vs the typical 2” that most folks use. Measure the total square inches of each and you can see how they compare. I wanted the most surface area possible.

            You can also get prefilters for the K&N's.

              I went ahead and sold the BAK and installed the round 66v. 1 test drive in it seems ok and I do like the way it opens up the side of the engine more. Thanks for the ideas fellas much appreciated. Probably go buy myself a pre-filter tonight .

              I removed the lower bracket holding the air/fuel mix knob to see how it looked. I like it so far just need to figure out where to put the air fuel knob now.

                I believe your talking about the idle adjustment knob and bracket.

                Yup! idle adjust. Not the air fuel

              I painted mine black and left it there.

                That looks good. I think I'll give that a go. Thank you!
