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.

I use the UNI foam filter socks. Work great, no shims for tank needed $8.95 each. Work in rain too.

Yes you do oil the foam lightly. Use the spray oil designed for foam filters or use lightweight oil. My filters are 7 years old and still look and work great. BTW when I purchased them they were only $5.95 each.

the cheapos are great and i use them, but beware they are flimsy, can be bent, twisted easily, and i had the glue holding the bottom together fail on me once causing them to fall apart, but for the price they are fine

oh by the way, my no name brand filters required I raise up the rear of the tank like 1 1/4"! Im thinking of getting some of them filter socks. Also I didnt jet my bike yet, (i have universal straight pipes too, no goat) and it runs ok. Im sure bigger jets will up the power though

And lower the mileage but if you are running pipes and foam filters, you really need to jet. I use foam filters with a drilled goat and glass packs and plugs look good w/no backfire.

Thinking about getting a couple of the Emgo pods. I currently use the Uni foam pods with the chrome caps but I like the look of the Emgo/K&Ns and I love the price of the Emgos. :D

Do you oil the Emgos and how often do you clean them?

Edit: Just received my Emgos from Z1 Enterprises. $8 each plus $6 shipping.
