Air Filter Cover

Anyone know of a cooler air filter cover for our bikes? I have a Max Air kit on my so the stock filter is non-functional. I know Max Air makes a new cover, but I'm not the biggest fan of the carbon-fiber look. Thanks!

Thanks - but I'm looking for a cosmetic replacement (not another intake kit). Since I already have a Maxair kit my stock air filter is non-functional.

I don;t know of one that is a straight cover replacement however there are plenty of badges of the "Live to ride" and those sort of things to dress it up.

But I think this is a cool alturnative, I order a custom speedo from this guy, I am sure he is either has a design or can make one for you that you suggest, Webslinger, he does custom airbox covers, they look great and very individual, cheap and can change them as often as you like:

I like the performance of the max air kit, but the look of the hyper charger. My (tentative) plan is to install the max air kit, and then keep looking on eBay for a cheap used hypercharger. Since it won't be functional, it won't matter what bike it fits which will give me more options and a lower price.

But there are other mods that are higher on my priority list and I will likely change my mind by the time I get around to doing it.
