New Air cleaner , Pros & Cons

Im thinking about changing my stock air cleaner to a new custom Spike air cleaner, This is more for the looks. But does anyone know some pros & cons on how it will effect my bikes performance? Would i also have to adjust anything else in the engine?

You will definitely need to adjust the jetting for the additional fuel.

What this man said. You'll be running super lean with all the extra air, stock airbox is very restrictive.

Does the Jetting require additional accessories? Or is that something the Shop can perform. Thanks for the feedback .

It requires a set of appropriate sized jets and a little know-how on tuning. Its a fairly easy process. Motorcycles Unlimited could probably do it for a good price.

The way I wrote it says more air means you can add more fuel which will make mo powa. You cant add more fuel without the addition of more air. Correct
