I would vote but no category for not going to waste my money. I can't agree or disagree because I don’t know, but from what I have heard I don’t want to find out.

I have been watching this thread and was curious as to how mine looked. I do have the newer style in my '96 (it was all the dealer had),so i went out and pulled my cover and looked at it. Well my results are I have holes in the edge pleates( i guess that is what you would call it) on about 80-90% of the lower edges. With the cost of the newer version being higher youd have thought the MOCO would give us at least the same quality if not better than the older version. Well mabey I am living in fantasyland. Oh by the way my filter has less than 500 miles on it, and I am not getting carb farts as someone stated as being the cause. What is an alternative since we cannot buy a K&N filter for It? I know there are several choice out there but I want to keep my ham can look as that is the look I like? -- tim f

I may disagree with this statement. As the part # 29066-03 for the is the se replacement (88 thru 03)for the old k&n setup. Uses filter # 29044-04 for the se replacement. It is the same as the 04/05 se. I have one an yes it has holes in the bottom of the filter material. Found the old style k&n filter at a local indy shop an replaced it.

This what the # 29066-03 replacement looks like.

My father-in-law is the parts manager for the local HD dealer... I asked him about the 04+ SE AC and he said he talked to the HD "higher ups". He told me that they said they really F'd up with the new filter and shouldn't have quit using K&N. He also told me that the word is that carb farts are causing the holes in the SE filters. Just passing on what I heard...

I got the SC A/C and now my bike has carb farts. I am thinking about changing to something else. Any suggestions?

Just curious, did you rejet with your AC and pipe? Even if the the SE AC is crappy it's design flaws shouldn't CAUSE farts. IMHO switching the AC without addressing the root of the problem won't help you.

Today I checked my SE AC and it have holes with only 2000 Km
These holes have about 1 or 2 mm. All are in the bottom of the filter element.
I'm worried if the engine can be damaged by this
Tomorrow I will go to the dealer. I want my money. Plastic backplate is warped.
