You change the air intake, you need to change the fuel metering. This is why there's a list of reccomended jetting changes you have to use when you switch to pod type filters. Another DUH there.

CV carbs adapt to ENGINE vacuum...and try to suck in the needed air through whatever air intake you use. It's not the other way around. Add more air and you need to add more fuel.... Believe it or not it is as simple ad that....

And another DILLIGAF . And DILLIGAF what some clown in another forum thinks either?

Although about scooters, a good explanation on how CV carbs work:

Just curious. Do you have pod filters on your FJR? Have you made any intake or exhaust mods to it at all?

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
