I left my intake system completely stock, but installed V&H pipes, and rejetted according to Lance's advice. It seems to be perfect, the plugs are just the right color after several hundred miles. I would think that installing individual filters would lean the mixture even more than installing aftermarket pipes, but that is just a guess, as I have had no experience with either, other than following someone else's jetting advice with the pipes. But I also live at 1200 feet. If you live at 10,000 feet, that will make a major difference. The stock filters, or actually the stock airboxes, are fairly restrictive, with that tiny little square hole in them. I did remove the square rubber grommets from the square holes. That didn't really make much of a difference in size, it just got rid of more unnecessary parts on a bike that IMO already has way to many parts. Jerry.
