That isn't what you want. It shouldn't come separately.

I assume its a reusable filter

Yup. K&N style filter. Oiled cotton.

OP, the make and model of the motorcycle doesn't matter. Its all about the carb (E or G) and the engine (your is and Evo) breather mounts.

If he's got a 111 with a Super G, this filter bolts right on. Would work with E too.

Like mentioned above, you'll probably have to upgrade your carbs intermediate jets. Let me know about the jets. I have a few laying around that I don't need.

I had gone from the stock AIH exhaust to a short 2-1 (Wyatt Gatling). It was okay with the stock filter. With the spike I had a bad stumble going from intermediate to main. I ended up with the next to largest jet available. 46.5, if I remember correctly.

How do I know what jet is in it currently? Are they easy to tune myself after changing jets?

Never really changed or messed with carb jets so I will be googling that.

It's super easy. After you change the jet, tune it with the mixture screw. You want 1 and a half turns out to start. When you turn it in, it will start to stumble, count the turns in and out. When you turn it out past 1 1/2 turns it will start to stumble again. With the right jet, it should be around 1 1/2 turns out, I think

Better yet, go to the S&S website and download the intructions.

The jet size is printed/stamped on the jet itself. Once you've made your filter change, take the bike for a ride. If you notice and lack of performance, stumbling, etc....you'll need to change. Also look at the plugs. You don't want to run the engine to lean.

I pulled the main jet and intermediat jet since I never really cleaned them after it has set in a garage for 3-4 years. The main jet says 86 at tip and my intermediat jet has 32 on side. Will probably get an air filter this week

The largest engine I have ran was 100" with a G carb, the main was 69 and inter was 29.5...that size main seems pretty big for a 111"...

Most Air Cleaner "Kits" should have the right backing/support bracket so you dont need to buy it, if you do what I think a lot of us do and buy them individually/separate/second hand, you have to piece it together.

John (Scooter Perf) is a damn great guy, so I would contact him (Call) and he can help you out.

Ok. I got the d&m spike air filter kit on today. The first test drive I took off pretty quick and it felt like it was cutting out a few times. I turned my mixture screw out very little and it didn't cut out anymore. I checked and have a 86 main jet and 32 intermediate jet. Should I go up on the intermediate or does the 04 have the 3rd jet that is adjustable?

John seems to know the 111" pretty good, I do recall reading that the S&S 111 was different. You want that mixture screw to be around 1.5 turns out. If its not around the 1.5 than you need to go up or down depending where its at. Refer to manual.

An 86 main, seems really high to me. Maybe somebody that has a larger engine can chim in on what main their using..

Take it for a long drive and check the plugs...if they look ok, the bike runs good and your around 1.5 out, then forget about it.

I screwed the mixture screw in to see and was like 1 3/4. My carb has a D so it doesn't have the adjustable air bleed. Should I look into drilling it out?
