Lightbulb Pod filters question

So I was lookin at the listed pod filters for the earshave. The K&N and the UNI
And I was looking to see if I could find a better deal. I came across EMGO pod filters and was curious if anyone had tried them or knows if there are problems. You can see why I am asking below.

I had to shim the rear of the tank with a few washers to make sure they cleared.

other than that they work good.

I am using these as well. As JamieB said, you'll need to shim the rear of the tank about 3/8 to 1/2 inch to clear the tank on the left side.

Here's a pict of similar filters that I use. Pay the $50 if you want for K&N, these work great for $8.95 each.

Here's another source for foam socks. You can find these cheaper online. Nice thing is you can trim these to fit our tight quarters under the VN tank.
