    Those type you just hose clamp to the end of the carb. No mount needed.

    I personally would not spend the money on a K&N. All the motorized bike websites sell a similar filter for half the cost.

    EDIT: Well that K&N can be had for 18 bucks and they are guaranteed for life.

    Not so bad. Normally K&N's are expensive. Crap , now I might order one.......

    Doesn't look like that one will fit.

    It's what I have on my CNS, dude.

    See here: http://motorbicycling.com/f13/ordered-good-replacement-filter-my-cns-21642.html

    I'm sure you'd have to plug the screw holes if you used it on the standard carb and the lack of a deep flange may cause difficulty in tightening the clamp on it.

    If you're unwilling to risk it, keep looking and I'm sure you can find one that has the 2 screws through it, like the standard carb... I'm pretty sure this one could easily be made to work, though. You could even fabricate a flange off of 2 bolt holes or standoffs, rather easily. Just takes a little ingenuity.

    I'm very happy with performance and sound, but I think some of the charge kicks back out the filter as the piston is going up and it's leaving some gas/oil mix on the seat tube. Could be the carb not being level and gas/oil draining out the overflow tube on the bottom of the carb, too...
