Ok I have had a ton of questions about this so here we go. ( P.S. this is my first shot at this how to stuff so anything that needs improved we can edit)

Parts needed: Everything came from O'Reilly's yes everything

2ea Filters Universal fit with clamps
I used the silver and chrome Spectre 3'' diameter
2ea 90 degree elbows
2ea couple reducers (2 ½ to 3") and it needs 2 clamps per side so it would be 4 total
2ea Unions I used a piece of plastic pipe 2'' in diameter they need to be 2" or so long
● Ok there are two ways you can go on this next part. For the tube that goes into the take you can used two small crankcase breathers or buy a kit from O'Reilly's that has the stuff to drill holes in the elbows and put the tube into the back side. I used the kit and it has the rubber washer, the tube insert, and hole saw all in the package with it.
2ea Brackets you can use the brackets for the intakes at O'Reilly's or make your own and that is what I did.

Ok now you need to remove your old intakes from your bike (also I removed the gas tank to get better access to it but it can be done either way)
Once you have gotten the intake off the bike you start by placing the plastic union into the stock intake hose once you have it in there you have to slide the reducer onto it the 2 ½" side faces up toward the stock hose then use a clamp and clamp it down.
Then you need to get the 90 degree elbow and slide it into the union but keep the rubber reducer on the outside of the elbow then clamp it down also if your going to use the crankcase breathers then you can mount them behind there somewhere but if your going to use the grommets then mark the back where you want to put the tube make sure you leave enough room so its not pull out to far take the elbow off the drill the hole and insert the grommets
Reinstall the elbow back into the rubber reducer and clamp it down.
Then you need to put the chrome plastic clamp that came with the elbow on slide it back so that you can still put the filter and clamp on because this first clamp use what you attach your bracket to the hold it in place don't have to tighten it up yet
Then put your filter on and put the clamp snug so you can get a idea of how long the bracket needs to be to hold it in place don't put a ton of force on it bc it will pull the filter off when you are riding well its happen to a couple of guys. The bracket will attach to one of the stock bolt locations that the stock intake box was.
Then take the filter back off and make your bracket or you can use those screw type from the store. Once you get the bracket on you can put the filter back on it and then just check to make sure its all snug and fits right.

Actually if you are just doing the intakes, and leaving the stock exhaust, you can get away without fuel management. I ran Edelbrock filters for four years with stock exhaust, and the bike ran fine. I added fuel management when I finally replaced the stock exhaust with Cobra Tri-Pro a few weeks ago.

Actually there is already an older "how to" with part numbers and all on here. This is called the "bottle fed" mod. Alot of posts and such on the topic.

Matt, that is part of the problem with the search here. Newbs don't know the vernacular and when they search under different terms it doesn't show up. The older How to's need to be tagged with some different terms for this to work right. But you are correct, there are tons of posts on this very mod. :bigthumbsup:

Send FuturR a PM about the brackets, he did a great job with the brackets on GarthenJr and Cope109's bottlefed mod. The best thing is that it is adjustable since it is threaded on both ends.
