That is if you like the look of a sponge wrapped in metal mesh attached to the side of your bike. Or a pleated piece of paper shaped like a cone sprayed with oil attached to the end of a pipe jutting out. I actually prefer the cleaner look of the 1100 over the later and smaller 750 V twin with the enormous air cleaner slapped on the side. I could see the cool in a set of velocity stacks if on a straight four or six like the old Hondas, or even the straight twins like the old Triumphs, but most air cleaners remind me of the one on a lawn mower engine no matter how cool the manufacturer may think it looks.

The air cleaners on your compressor need to be eyeballs or nipples.

I'm liking the looks of this. What do you have in mind for the side of the tank? Looks like a blank canvas screaming for something.
