pod filters, anyone use them?

im thinking i should replace my air filters, and i have seen pod filters. i think these look cool, and i can imagine that they sound pretty loud and considerably louder than stock. would these be ok for use on an sv650? i have seen them on parallel twins and inline 4's but never on a v-twin... i think

Not sure what the difference would be on a fuel injected bike, but they can cause erratic running on an in-line 4, such as an old CB750. You can get a lot more air flow through them, and if you get a good cross-wind, the mixture could temporarily run lean, causing unstable power. I'm not familiar with the SV, so the mounting location could prevent this.

We use pod filters on our endurance SV for racing. Personally, I wouldn't use them on a street SV, you have to keep them clean all the time, and they get dirty often.

You'll also have to re-jet the carbs and possibly even a jet kit (I would).

You will see a very modest gain in hp on the dyno after the jet kit is installed, but likely won't see much in terms of performance in the "seat of the pants" dyno.

Stick with stock box and BMC filter, you'll be a lot better off.

thanks
thats the kind of feedback i was hoping for.

i was thinking it would maybe be a bit more maintenance needy. the filter should be replaced, so i think i'll go with the bmc like you said

I have the K&N pods on my Gixxer (it came that way). Let me tell ya bud..... DON'T DO IT! Like Tom LSTD said, you have to clean them ALL THE TIME! Not only that, but cleaning oil-type wet filters is time consuming.
