Hi I keep reading about the vacuum issue I would be interested to know how other people have sorted that? I have now (thanks to great help) found several types of adapter to attach an air kit but as yet am not sure which one to use.
I have seen the aluminium ones but have also seen a fibre glass one (that needs painting) and even a smaller type one, which seems to be a sort of cover
If anyone has any experience of these I would love to know I am concerned about the Hyper charger sticking out too far. It does appear though what ever I end up using, Hyper charger or some type of filter I will need some type of adapter to get it to fit
I am also wondering if the hyper charger is really worth the effort and will the vacuum we rig up actually make the flaps work properly, hopefully there will be a Hyper charger user on here
The Thunder 40106A is specifically made for the hyper charger. Thunder also state that the vacuum line may be left off with no impact on performance. I guess the flaps would have to be removed or left open It would be a good idea to ask them what they suggest though.
One of the reasons I opted for a combination of a ThunderMfg adapter and a spike air cleaner is that it stopped my knee from hitting the air cleaner. If you like the old school look of the velocity stack take a look at Gar's write up on his 2 barrel air cleaner, it combines old school cool with improved comfort.
You have to buy an adaptor (like the Low and Mean one) and then any 3 bolt Harley air intaKe will work. I bought a Cobra Powr Flo which has it's own adaptor. It is similar to a hypercharger, but no flaps.
Thanks! The pipes were made by MFR. He is a member here and has made many many cool things for our bikes. I always liked the Fuggin pipes, which are impossible to find, so I had MFR made these which are very similar. They sound awesome!
