hey kevin,i just bought one of those little filters your talking about. there like $10 and look like a little K&N filter right?i was able to rig it on to my 1978 sears free spirit and it looked bad ass...unfortunately, it is really restrictive and the performance of my ped suffered greatly. so i wouldnt really advise getting one even though they look pretty tough.-Lee

thank you ray,now another question, can i fix it easily? or should i lock it in the in or the out position?
