Default V Stacks

Are they still a thing? Can't say that I see them in my neck of the woods.

They're stock on most bikes these days. Even the V Rods had them. You can't see them... but they're definitely a thing and pretty consistent in their use.

But yeah, you can get stacks from quite a few places for our bikes too.

There's even this funky thing that has a removable stack for some reason.

IMO, a velocity stack only belongs at the drag strip... if that

Unless you are just a masochist who wants to ruin an expensive engine with dust, dirt and debris. In which case... go for it!

There is that element too. I'm just having problems deciding some of the details for the build I will be doing. I just am not seeing any air cleaner systems that is doing it for me. Looks and performance are important for the project.

There are some good deals on stock air filter elements on ebay.
