Vance and Hines Naked Filter

I think I am going to buy this and have a couple questions for your guys that have it. Is anyone using it totally "naked?" Trying to figure out how that little front cover is worth more than half the cost of the filter. Also have you gotten a rain sock for it and if so which brand? Anyone running it inside the stock cover? Does it even fit and if so how much performance do you miss out on?

Don't have one yet but from my understanding the front cover is purely cosmetic

First off, it will not fit inside the stock air cover, if you are handy with the right tools you could cut the stock cover down to fit like the V&H cover ( I have seen a few people do this) I bought the Aluminum cover for mine, as to not run it "naked".

I also have a rain sock by Outerwears.com they make them to fit the V&H intake. and is a must if you plan on riding in any kind of rainy, foggy, misty type of weather. I have felt first hand how it feels to not have the rain sock on and have my bike all coughing and spitting, basically wanting to die, from sucking water into the intake.

Be sure to purchase the V&H FP3 or some other type of system tuner, you will need to upgrade to a stage 1 tune up when you add a high flow intake to the bike. This is a must. if you dont you could really damage your motor. You could take it into the dealership, as most of them will be able to do this for you, but in my opinion the FP3 is more cost effective.

good luck

Thanks I already have the FP3 and a TBR exhaust looking to finish off the stage 1.

My 750 only had one breather tube, which actually was the hardest part of the installation, is getting that ruber tube to go into the hole on the backer plate. Was a very easy installation other than dealing with the above mentioned breather tube. just a few bolts. The instructions that come with the in-take are pretty straight forward.

I have the naked intake and it is naked. The install was easy. I don't have the rain sock. I am in NorCal and until this winter, we have not had much rain.

I just spray painted the inner part flat black. No way was I paying that much for a cover.

I changed the exhaust and have the FP3 along with the air filter. I did not notice a huge improvement. But the bike (XG500) is more responsive, overall better throttle response. I think these bikes are just fun to ride.
