What are you guys running for Air breathers other than the stock unit that has given excellent results?


Thanks in advance.

Most all aftermarket air filters for the 111's will be a big improvement over the stock set up. The stock set up guides warm air into the filter and is restrictive. So looks and price become a big factor in choosing a new air box. At www.IndianAftermarket.com we offer several air filter systems for the 111 bikes. The "Ripper" offers the least restricted air flow. It has a large filter which allows more air but it also flows better as it gets dirty.

I agree with what Marcus has said and his version has been tested by a member from this forum who knows what his talking about and gave it the big thumbs up. I personally run the Indian round Hi Flow filter ,but if our exchange rate was better than it is I would be putting one of these Thunder Works Rippers on my bike without thinking twice.

There was a write up by user Dan_Frisbe about making your own for less than $50. Matter of fact there are quite a few of them (old now). I will see if I can find the links and post them. Once you do start to find them in the archives here it will take you down a rabbit hole but fear not. I followed these instructions and replaced mine with a K&N. Only advice is to be careful about which one you use because some stick out too far and will brush against your inner leg (comfort issue). I went with the K&N RC-0920 from Amazon and I see the price is now $61. But... it will require a tune.

Edit: Found one from a different web site: Cheap High Performance Air Cleaner For 111 Engines | Indian Rider - Indian Motorcycle Forums

Any change requires a tune change though, that's why I'm sticking with stock. Really want to upgrade the air and exhaust but then you throw the cost of a tuner on it and you have a really big expense on your hands that has to all be done at the same time. Stock isn't slow or un-enjoyable, so I'll just keep riding along I reckon...

I just got the HI PO Stage one and the flash that goes along with it. Big improvement over the stock.
I had a stock 111 and a K&N. The bike just Goes better off the line.
A lot more low speed power. 1st gear is much better I don't have to short shift as much. If you get on it in 2, 3, 4 it has much better power and doesn't need to be short shifted at all. I think the Stage 1 flash should be stock. The Air Cleaner is clearly louder as well. If you really wack the throttle you can hear it. Nice power at 80 too. I typically ride over a Large 1000 ft hill on my commute in the morning and evening and I do it at 75-80 with the cruise on. It is awesome.
