My bike has John Aylor's reeds...
True Teaser, they don't hold water but unlike a piston port, I need to oil the UNI's or they stay dry. ;)

I posted this once before, can't remember where though.
 It isn't motorcycle filters but does show filtering capabilities

Maybe I should jury rig this unit I have with a hair dryer and do the test myself... ;)
I'll check with my buddy's to see if they have a K&N to borrow.
To be fair, my prejudice goes back to before I had reeds. I've never tried K&N's on this motor.

Damn, haven't seen one of those flow meters since the early 70's  8)
I you checked the ISO 5011 test, you'll see K&N are only good for keeping out boulders and small children  ;D

This isn't where I bought mine but this is the unit... I got it after I put the bike up for the winter so looking forward to testing it out in the spring for syncing the carbs. It is supposed to be more user friendly than the Uni-syn as it doesn't kill the flow.

They work better than normal vac gauges on two-stroke motors, we used them on T500 race bike and stuff without airbox

I have read and read and possibly reread threads on pod filters, uni and k&n`s in my search for the answer to ditching the oem airbox or not.  What I am getting is pods on an 81 honda cb400t is gonna make it gasp for air like a fat kid after gym class.  Will K&N`s or Uni`s give a better result or am I opening up a jetting nightmare?

If you change anything in the intake tract that changes flow, you are going to need to re-jet. It's not that pods create a moving target but you will need to understand what the motor needs and what to change to correct it.
