Velocity Stack

A boring post for myself, thinking out load really. I'd still like to try running velocity stacks rather than the stock air cleaners, with a duel carb bike they stick out and are kinda in the way when I ride. Looking at some like these.

Clearly open velocity stacks in the desert are a dumb idea™ so I've been bouncing around some make-shift filter ideas. It occurred to me that a lot of the SCCA guys used to run covers on their Webers kinda like these.

The mouths on stock Webers are 2 ¾". The mouths on stock Amal stacks are 2 13/16". Maybe they'll fit.

Part# 99008 927 2 ¾ - Small screen covers to fit 44/48 IDF and IDA 45/48 DCOE w/ steel stacks.

These Pierce filters may not even be all that restrictive.

Seems like a pretty cool idea. I agree that the stacks would look cool.

Rumor has it that "HarleyWidow" might actually be married to "Flathead45", at least for now. She hasn't learned how to log out, plus she appears to have opinions about velocity stacks... Go figure.

Hmmm. I'm suspicious we were the target of some sort of ingenious spousal social engineering ruse. It's probably best not to draw any additional attention by blaming anyone for it.
