If you are talking about the Barons filter, it's plenty big enough for a 950. Works great on my 1700.

Never run out of traction, ideas, and real estate at the same time.

Yes the barons . Mainly looking because I checked my filter after 10k & was impressed with filter area compared to my 650s. But was baffled to why do they draw air from between the hot cylinders :-o & the inlet was smaller than 1 barrel in the Tbody. This may account why the 950 makes as much TQ as a 883 HD but like 5HP less.

I have the la choppers xxx air kit. Provides complete 360 degree exposure to air. I can't imagine another air kit that can get more air into your intake

I modded my stock box woth a hole saw and added a hi flow K&N filter. Noticed the diff right away, centrally see the holes unless you're trying, and cost next to nothing.
