      Oh yes i know all about the repercussions of inconsistency in air flow
      across pod filters- moving your knees too close to them even can cause
      trouble. I work in an auto shop, though, and I am actually wanting to start
      making a sort of "ram air" setup for my bike that involves a scoop going to
      each side that directs airflow toward the pods at the right angle- should
      result in some forced induction once i'm on the move. Also, replacing the
      needle with one that has a more pronounced taper (thus fixing the fuel flow
      issues caused by the pods) is said to fix the whole issue without the
      addition of any special cowls or covers. I just need to know WHERE i can
      get ahold of a set of these filters and a breather.
