Mikuni carb + factory air cleaner

#1

Has anyone built or heard of an adapter for a Mikuni carb to be able to mount the stock air cleaner assembly? I love what the carb has done for dependability and horsepower, but loathe the look of the K&N filter... anyone?

A friend has just put an old style cover over the K&N
& run the screw thru the center. Looks original till you get real close. & see the Mikuni.
I'm using a late Harley CV carb on my 45+ motor. ;D

Hey Billy!

Wow! After spending so much time trying to get my head around how I was going to modify the backing plate to mount the stock cleaner on my carb.. I totally overlooked the idea of fastening the outer case to the new air filter!!! I bolted it up the same day you put up that post Thanks for the tip... that's what makes this site so great!

Warhog, glad that helped, you sure got a sharp scooter.. I bet it looks sharper with a correct air cleaner cover on it!
And loc-tite is a wonderful thing!! Harleys love it!!

PS: you're right, This is a Great site!
