Hi, the new guy here – just bought a 98 Rebel 250 after I persuaded my wife to let me back on a bike after my last crash/stay in hospital/six months of work etc. Can’t ride the thing yet due to my injuries but plan to spend the next few months turning it into a bobber, I am thinking of getting rid of the air box and putting a pod type air filter on, from what I’ve read I believe the increased air flow will cause the bike to run lean, and the way to fix this is to re jet the carbs, which all sounds a bit complicated to me, I’m not really after any increase in performance but I just like the look of the pod air filter, I was thinking if the bike is running lean with a new air filter instead of re jetting the carb could i not restrict the airflow from the filter instead, thinking of some form of metal plate between the filter and carb, into which I can drill various holes to fine tune the airflow to what it was with the original filter, what do you think? Would it work? Hope this all makes some kind of sence!!! Let me know what you think.
