new to cruiser md

just sold my 600rr and bought an 05 v star 1100 classic with 5500 miles, great condition, will post some pics later, just need to tune it since it wasn't ridden a whole lot. wondering where I can get a good price on air filter kit, I just got an integrated tail light, gonna put an exhaust and filter on it and really don't want to pay 200 for one, I like the style of the chrome spike filters, anyone have one and can say yay or nay on it?
thanks and md guys chime in on some good places to ride?

Welcome from a fellow 1100 rider!

The only money saving option on the air intake is if you buy the parts yourself rather than as a kit. You can do POD filters for about $100 including new jets (which you'll need anyway if upgrading the exhaust).

I found the spike chrome ones on eBay for about 100 shipped, anyone have anything to say about them? Good or bad

Ive seen them. They look cool. Won't do anything for performance, as stock restrictive airbox remains.

Wait a dang minute, how the heck did I miss that this is an intro post and I offered actual help without first demanding pics!!

I'm gong to step outside and chastise myself.

And we're going to need some pics ASAP.
