Replacement air filter assembly for bike with K&N Pods

My stock air filter assembly is completely 'fake' at this point with K&N pods up under the tank.

I'd like to get something a little jazzier looking than the stock circle. Are there any out there that simply screw on to the existing housing, e.g. just a new "lid"...? I'm fairly open to looks - I like the look of the Kuryakyn hypercharger, but several "shield" shaped ones also look nice to me. Just less "plain" is really the goal.

Or do I have to go buy the full setup from someone, even though it's not actually being used?

Thanks,

KC

Casey I'm right there in the same boat with you. What I did find is made by Yamaha of all places. Its just a cover insert that sticks on the existing one. http://http://www.cruisercustomizing...FYUTHwodsngAug

This ad states it's for a 650 but I found it once on a Yamaha site that listed the same part # for the 650 and 1100. Don't know if that's enough change for you but that's the only "cheap" solution I have found.

Thanks, Summer. I'll have to ponder if that's the one for me, but given the cost vs. a whole new set up I won't even really be using, I'll ponder carefully :-)

They also make a couple matching covers for that side on the engine as well. FYT I was wrong about it fitting the 650 and 1100. I did some research after sending that post and the 1100 has a different part number.

Thanks, Mike. I like the look of that! I'll have to start keeping an eye on Ebay...

That's definitely an option, Mick. In the link Mike provided, the guy even says the look of the bike w/o covers is pretty good. If I don't find/go with something that adds to the look of the bike in and of itself (spike, hpercharger, etc.) I'll probably go with "nothing" over the plain "dinner plate" stock filter cover.
