The stock filter if fine. Probably your carb settings are off. If you still want a filter then K&n is the best.[8D]

try putting in some pre- filters from Davemotors. If u cant.. try putting in a some used leg stocking of your wife on the filter.It helps catch some dirt and way inexpensive.

K&N style is not the best...get a dual stage filter like this http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXHTX0&P=Z or a filter like this http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXMYW3&P=Z

The only problem with those airfilters is that i don't think i can use the shoke,since the filter will be right up against the carb barrel,and mthe choke closes onto the carb barrel?Am i right? Sought of hard to explain.
