Under tank air filter

I saw a picture of an oval shaped filter under the gas tank. It seems to only do a partial ear shave. I have searched this site in vain. I have my bike (1999 Vulcan 750) apart to clean the carbs and replace some fuel lines. I can't find the thread about the filter which seems to be a really easy mod and one that costs less than the total ear shave. Any help? I was going to do that and ditch the ears as well as put some straight pipes (hollow) on it, too. Thanks to all who post on these forums. They are most helpful.

What you are describing seems like one step short of completing the ear shave.... I would just finish it lol.

Was a member here that modded a proper filter (single) to up under the tank...it can be done, ANYTHING can be done....
Both snorkels flipped up and were teed and went into a filter....it HAS been done....

I was gonna do similar, then saw the futility in it....

IMO, doing that makes a filter change a pita....better off with pods....unless ya wanna spend more time wrenching than riding....or just ride weekends, and yer filter lasts 4 years....

it ws me... I did it to even out the carbs, and help reduce the amount of jetting needed for riding at elevations ranging from 10 feet bellow sea level to 14,000 feet above sea level in one ride.

Here is the thread that gave me inspiration.

I did it a little differently though and used a NAPA SME 708355 filter and a stop sign to make a single open filter.. cost me roughly 20 bucks when it was all said and done.

Kanuck 69 did the undertank single filter setup with a K&N . I think he sold that setup and went with pods on his bike . Shoot him a PM and he can tell you all about it and probably link you to the thread.

I was running the single under tank filter for awhile too. Worked nicely for me. Not sure If I'm going to keep that setup or switch over to pod filters when I get the bike back up and running.

......I'd rather wake up in the middle of nowhere then in any city on earth.

I was reading through that thread and saw a post from "lance328" "the Professor"! funny thing is, that just yesterday while I was out in the garage poking around my VN750, out of the blue I thought of "lance328"!
