Hi all,

I've been looking around for a new air filter and slip on for my street 750. A lot of the setups that I've seen in person and online have a whistling sound that seems to be coming from the air filter. I'm not sure if that is desirable to some, but I'm not a fan. What are others opinions or experience with this? Does anyone have any suggestions for air filters that don't make this high pitched whistle?

Brother there are 2 things you need to do

1. Understand that the Street is as quiet as a mouse , so a flee fart will sound as annoying as an air intake doing what it is intended to do

2. Buy a noisy pipe and drown out the air intake induction whistle

You will now have a bike that sounds cool

Problem solved in 2 easy steps

Cheers

Ray

But to answer the question - lol

Mate, there are essentially 2 camps on here

Vance and Hines or Harley Screaming Eagle


For my money - screaming eagle pipe with a Vance and Hines naked air intake

Best of both worlds

^^ my setup
Screaming eagle exhaust
Vance and Hines naked intake
Vance and Hines Fp3 fuelpak

After adding the intake and fp3 the engine seems to run less hotter.

Oh I only notice the intake during startups, while running the exhaust is the only thing I can hear

It's not for everyone, I get it. But I absolutely love the sounds that come from my V&H intake. Cold start especially, when it's really sucking in air. I get nothing but compliments on the intake and V&H exhaust without the baffle. Went on a ride a few weeks ago in the mountains with a couple of guys on Hondas and Ducatis and they all commented very favorable on the sound of the bike, especially the harsh bark on downshifts and the deceleration rich pops when going into corners hot.

I just used a K&N Drop In filter. And bought a Firebrand Megaphone Muffler. Havent installed it yet. Have this fear that I will need a Stage 1 Tune from the dealer.

I've been looking some and those are the two main ones that I've seen out there, other than the $80 upgrade kit for the stock intake. Do you have any videos uploaded of your setup?

I did hear a 750 with the V&H setup at a dealership, it had a naked intake with the comp series pipe. The sound is awesome! The more I look around, the less I'm worried about the whistle.

They say anytime you change the intake you want to get a fuel pack or a tune. The extra expense is a bummer, but definitely a necessary evil.
