K&N stock replacement air filter

Just got my 2005 VStar 1100, ordered a K&N factory replacement air filter. Will I need to rejet or do any other kind of tuning with this?

no, you should be good. once in just make sure your idle is 1000rpm. since you are down there, balancing your carbs is never a bad idea.

What about a Hyper Charger kit? Rejetting/tuning?

what about something that actually gives you more power?

None of the mods you've mentioned really do a thing for the 1100... PODS period and exhaust.

Need to mod the airbox to let that k&n get to work. You could buy a BAK but doing your own is more fun. Either way...open that baby up and let her breathe. Not sure what pipes you have but the a few less baffles are a good thing too.

Thanx Boob (teehee boob)...BAK? Big air kit? Details please, I'm new to the whole air cooled v-twin thing. Need all the info/education I can get on these things. Stock pipes not sure if they can be modified or not

If you are a new 1100 owner...you need to go here and book mark this site.

https://sites.google.com/site/vstar1...-modifications

The best intake upgrade is a Pod set up and you can read about it at the link above. A "Big Air Kit" and drilling holes in the air box will net you next to nothing on an 1100 except an empty wallet. You can spend 1/2 the money and get 3 times the performance increase with pods.

I'd also highly suggest going to the New Owner section and reading everything there word for word. Everything you need to know about the 1100 is on that site. You can also click the link in my signature to get there.

Oh boy are you in for a treat. There's a LOT to learn and the possibilities are sky high on these bikes, especially if you're handy and into diy. Yes bak is big air kit. Usually around $200-400 a kit. Im not the residing 1100 expert but I know the air box can be modded to allow more air in and more power to ur bike. The stock exhaust has baffle plates that can be drilled out to increase flow also. Look around, ask in the 1100 section and you'll get your answers. Lots of fun and much cheaper than buying all the parts etc...unless that's your thing in which case break open the wallet and start buying. Lol. Now FYI you Starr changing both airbox and exhaust and you'll need to rejet your carbs to allow for the diff in air/fuel ratio. But this stuff is childsplay.....happy modding and post often.

So adding holes in a stock air box with high flow filter will do nothing for performance and is expensive mick?

Its free and if done right makes a huge diff so I'm confused on what you mean...
