    Low and Mean is now offering a dual air kit that is identical to the chinese kit listed on eBay.
    They have also produced a how to installation video.

    i have the spikes already installed, but as you know the cones can be easily removed, so the other kit you mentioned will fit the original spike hardware?

    You are correct .... I have the chinese kit and the RC-3680 filters. The options I list above give multiple mix and match options and different filters, clamps and sock colors.


    I know lot of folks don't like the kit because of the side views not being equal. I doesn't bother me, plus I can change the the look in minutes at little to no additional cost.


    My pockets aren't deep and I wanted the biggest bang for the buck and this kit gives me that.

    i agree the spikes being off set dont bother me either, but i will defo use the info you have given to look into the other options, i was just concerned other filters would not be the same circumference,

    Default install help

    I had a problem installing these but thanks to MRG, BLESSTHISNINE & jhardy finally figured some things out and some things to try.

    1) sense we figured out that we are buying for different vendors do not all parts will go on the same for example the rod on the exhaust side on mine the A is at elbow facing up pointed out on MRG his is under still at elbow but faces motor on other side the B is connected at motor and reads like this (B). you have to figure out what works for you meaning how you want cones positioned I like mine in close to bike.

    2) some kits also come with all hardware mine didn't I had to get the 2-40mm 6X1mm bolt that goes thur spacers to motor.

    3)the rod on the exhaust side is too short here is solution thanks blessthisnine for this.it drove me crazy I hope it help furture installer.
    bend that small tab that sticks between the fins so bracket can be moved backwards to make up for short rod as you see you don't move it much but it's all you need then when you have it all lined up tighten nut on bracket and use blue loc-tight



    pics of finished install
