Hey, new to the board... I have a VTX 1300T, just purchased V&H cruzer pipes and they should arrive any day. Now, for the next upgrade... looking for air cleaner. Any recommendations?? Küryakyn Skull Air Cleaner Kits (K&N high-flow filter element) look cool, but how's the performance?

Thanks...:choppersm

I also like the looks of the stock on the R, S and T.
I did the decap and added a grill mod by SPyKER.

Welcome to the cafe from North Carolina. Are you wanting to change the airbox for looks or air flow? Decap, K&N filter, and Spyker mod and you'll have all the air you need.

Do it for the looks, not the performance gain.

Its debateable how much of a performance gain you get, primarily because you're looking at modifying the carb, depending on the air intake you choose.. Anywhere from a simple adjustment, to adding shims to a needle, to a full-on re-jet.. Thats where the little (and it is minor... you can feel it, but Id doubt much would show up on a Dyno) boost comes from for the most part.

Appreciate all the feedback. I was checking out Spyker mods, anyone have pictures of their bikes with Marine Corps Eagle Globe & Anchor and/or 3 Crosses/Iron Cross? Look good on the site but would like to see how it looks on the bike. Ride safe.... :choppersm

I can mock up any combination you want to see. I can't easily get to the airbox side of the bike to show you them on it yet. The snow just melted yesterday. ;-)

No, he was refering to the VTX Tribal logo on the cover. You can still get the air box.

As you can see there is a lot of options and styles out there, it's just all a matter of what you like and are willing to pay for it.

Congratulations on the V&H cruzers. I run with those and love the sound. Put a Kury Pro R Hypercharger on mine for better breathing. Lots of good air boxes to choose from and examples of custom work here. Go with the look you like would be my 2 cent. D Day:choppersm
