Smile Benefits of installing a Lloyds High Flow Filter

So I recently installed a brand new Lloyds High Flow Air Filter. I am just wondering what sort of benefts should I be expecting? I do hear the air being sucked into the filter. In terms of better gas milage should I see any benefits with this addition?

No better fuel economy. However, you DO get about 4HP & aroun 5TQ more out of the beast!

More than that... but you have to TUNE IT for the additional airflow.

Should have fitted lloyds fuel controller while you had the tank off its easy to fit using the instructions and comes with base line settings for various set ups since fitting these two upgrades plus Lloyds adjustable timing wheel I have found myself running the bike higher up the rev counter than before so fuel consumption is greater but so is the smile on my face.

Default Lloydz High Flow Air filter

My goal of purchasing the Lloydz High Flow air filter was to improve gas millage . My 2013 CCT as lots of humph aleady and lots of get up and go , don't really need much more.

Put on over 12,000 kms in my first season of riding it last year and loved it. Looking forward to adding many more kms once this Canadian winter is over.

My mpgs around 5000' haven't changed but it takes less throttle while running. Unfortunately my riding is mostly at 5000' and up so your results may not be the same.

I'm just getting ready to install mine, and I think the results will be the same. Riding at higher RPM's = higher smile factor (until a cop is around)....but lower MPG factor. After my ATS install, I can't control my right hand. I'm sure that will get even worse after the PCV and Lloydz hi flow filter install.

It's always about the right hand with guys! For teenagers, its one thing.....for us middle-age guys with a bike...it's entirely different, but still kind of the same!

The Lloydz air filter for the X bikes are a performance item like most of his products.

You probably won't see any benefit until you twist the throttle at a time when it really counts but just the air filter isn't enough. You must have an exhaust and tuner to match up with it. Get the drop in cams and timing wheel to really wake the beast up and put a grin on your face from ear to ear all day long.

the results will definatley be the same right down to the stupid grin on your face I also own a honda crosstourer which is faster (much) and handles better (much) and is comfier but my hammer still gets used more the feel good factor is through the ceiling.
You have covered teenagers and middle aged men how about us old men like 63 is it ok to have both things?
