Hey Guys,

Looks like an interesting  upgrade.

Is it easy to install and where could I get a pod kit  ?

Would I need to simply install the pods or also have some other tuning / settings to do ?

Thanks

You get more air in the carbs, so you need to re-jet to richen the ratio (1:13)

SSCustomCycle sells complete kits (Chubby Air Kit)

as does Metric Magic, ... You can find Tim B. (owner) on Facebooks V star page.

A pod kit paired with a full exhaust will gain you 10% +/- or 5 to 7 horsepower

Hi! It is very easy to install. But you have to know how to take the carbs off, open them and which nozzles you have to replace. But that last part is easy because of the pictures they send with the chubby air kit. 
 

But I believe everyone can do this on his own, take your time and maybe take pictures from the current situation. Maybe mark the throttle cables (there are 2). 
The first time I’ve made pictures every time I disassembled a piec, so when I was building it back I could do it all reverse.
