Default Advice on what to buy (Air Cleaner)

Hi everyone. I'm just a bit of a lurker and don't post too much but I'm finally stuck.
I'm looking for a heavy breather/high flow air filter for my bike, but I want to sue the same cover that I've got on it at the moment. Everywhere seems to be a new circle look. I'm not exactly sure what I need to buy to make my bike look the same but perform better
Just for reference, I've got an 02 883.
Thanks in advance boys and girls.

K & N do a performance filter that fits in the stock cover. Pretty sure it's also a Screaming Eagle Stage 1 part (+$!). I'm using an S & S teardrop for performance, looks & comfort as I found the stock cover bulky & it pushed my leg out a bit too far

Default Advice on what to buy

Hi,
So that is the standard Air Cleaner. You can get K@N air filters that offer more flow etc. Just remove old one and replace. Still use same cover.
Perhaps can also modify the A/C to also allow more air flow to go with the K@N. That would be the cheapest way I believe. I have an S@S stealth circular breather ( complete unit )and i think the standard oval cover goes over it. Hence the stealth name. I just left mine without the cover.
Plenty of people on this forum have done numerous things with the Air Breather.
Give it some time and I am sure they will also reply. All the best.

Thanks for the responses already. When I spoke to the local dealer he said that I'd have to get the backplate re done to make the high flow filter worth it. Does the k&n one come with that or is it just a replacement for the element?m

Does the s@s stealth come with the he whole kit and kaboodle and then you can just slap the original cover on it. It's just I'm fairly happy with the cover and think the way it looks suits my bike

The s&s comes with everything needed to install, and the stock cover bolts to that.

yep +1 on the Hammer air cleaner. I got one and will not run any thing else. And you can rout the breather fumes and oil away from your intake. That stuff builds up really quickly on the piston tops.

+2 for the Hammer Performance Impact Air Hammer. Fits well with stock cover, though there'll be a little bit of the filter visible on your 2002 Sporty. Their backplate design will certainly improve air flow for you too.

Thanks heaps folks. My actually getting the hammer 1275 kit so the air cleaner will match it perfectly I'd say. I didn't realise they did one. Thanks a lot
