So on my way to work this morning a feel a vibration against my right calf. I look down and my Screaming Eagle air intake is shaking. I immediately start moving to the right should of the freeway and try to use my leg to hold the housing in place. No luck. The bugger ripped off and bounced 1/4 mile down the shoulder. It's beat to hell but part of the mounting bracket snapped off. Another part is still attached to my motor. The housing looks like it was hit with a hammer and dragged down the road... which I guess is pretty accurate smh. Not really find a direct replacement so here's my question: I'm currently running a 97 Dyna FXDWG with Makuni HSR45 carb, Andrews Cam and Vince and Hines exhaust. Would I be safe to use any bolt on aftermarket (Arlen Ness/ etc) stage 1 or 2 air intake or will I have mounting issues? A coworker and fellow dyna rider said I might.

I would be careful with changing air/fuel/spark ratios with that performance set-up ... (btw ... that's a BIG carb)

Any chance it is a K & N filter within the Screaming eagle housing?




If so, using a similar sized height and width filter might minimize impact of air change. (Same actual filter would be perfect)
