    the cover can be modifyed to fit, it goes straight over the filter but the bolt holes to hold it to the filter are to small, so if you drill out the holes and get some nice button head bolts that screw into the sportster hi flow you will have it the way you want.

    get the SE sportster hi flow 29042-04B which uses the stock cover, get you dealer to order the ventilator cover seperatly from the hi flow kit the chrome cover number is 29671-09 and the black cover is 30074-09, there is also the SE insert for the cover which you will need which is 29846-09, once you have it you will see how it needs to be modifyed

    Take a look at this Self Help tip, regarding one method of customizing a Sportster, before getting more new hardware...

    http://www.hdtalking.com/transmission_clutch_and_primary_drive_train/19478-sportster_servicing.html

    Nothing wrong with the SE Breather Kit, if you want to "trick it out" for a bit more air flow...take about 1/2 to 1" off the bottom of that chrome cover exposing the air cleaner element slightly around the perimeter. Still have weather protection, but air flow increased even more.

    haha i like the "air flow is increased even more" dont think a sportster will use much more air than the stock filter can flow, the cut down cover will just allow cool air to be collected

    Rancid sure cutting it down will allow more airflow as i have had mine on the dyno and got around 7 more horse out of it vs with the stock or screamin eagle breather ,,, just waiting for the ventilator to come in now

    Rancid, yep like I said a "bit" more airflow i.e. cooler air and "cool factor" at the same time...:lolrolling

    You will only flow as much air as the carb air horn will allow, but you know, I like to see that element underneath, so I know when service is needed...a restricted element is a restricted element and why pay to have things modified if you already paid for the big bucks...JMHO...:D
