    4" front air intake filter location

    I picked up everything to make my own catch can and 4" intake. Waiting on the supercharger adapter from jerry. I was wondering where you guys are putting the actual air filter. Do you zip tie it to the top of the gas tank? Or does it need to go farther forward?
    also, I have yet to get a filter. What do yall recommend for the filter?

    Tank is fine. I used a K&N filter, 4" id. Forget the number but, it's about 5-6" long.

    Ok great, so what about an air filter? I'm using one of those spectre ones on my catch can, but didn't knie if I wanted to go with one of those cheap filters for the intake

    don't bother running it to the front. Screen it over and run it straight back. I gained about 100RPMs and it's much cleaner. WAY easier to remove and fog.

    I guess it all comes down to how you ride. If there is a chance water will get into the back of the ski, up front is best. I don't
    jump or take on any water when i ride so rear air is what I am running. Imposter is right, gain in rpm and boost.

    Would I not see as good of gains with it in the front? Or is it just easier to run it in the back? I don't really jump the ski, but I do whip it hard and bury the back end and throttle out of it.

    You'll see gains in the front. I have never ingested water and I have a hole cut out back there with frogzskin. I ride around in 4ft chop, spin it jump it yada yada and 0 issues.
