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 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.

I'll take some and post tomorrow. I put a 2" hole in center of black box on both front and back. It really isn't in a spot to be worried about a lot of dirt or moisture getting in and with the k&n it's even better protected. Pics asap.

I put the LA Choppers XXX kit on mine, I like the extra pickup I get in the low range, and I'm also seeing improved mileage.

I wouldve gone with a manufacturers kit but I didnt want to buy a processor but still wanted an increase in get up. I can feel the difference for sure.
