    Most owners of HD motorcycles adjust them to their own taste fitting an air cleaner that you like the look of is fine just ensure you get the carb jetting correct as it should flow more air than a stock air cleaner

    Air cleaner is fairly simple to replace once you have the main cover off pull off the air cleaner then there are 3 hollow bolts that go into the heads and 3 that secure the air cleaner back plate to the carb watch the orientation of the gasket between the carb and the back plate

    to replace the jets you will need to know what you have in the first place drop the float bowl and check the jet sizes i find it easier to remove the carb and work on the bench
    float bowl screws can be a bit of a pest to get off if they have been on for a while best to replace them with allen headed screws
