I agree the stock air box is most likely better. I bet that's long gone and Joe won't want to spend time tracking one down. The stock pipes are probably better too. But people think a loud engine is a ...

That is strange. Maybe those custom pipes are making it breath worse.

Well the scariest thing is that it was rebuilt and it seems by someone who didn't know what they were doing.

Good luck.

I'm not sure what a professional tune up is if the jetting is still wrong...

You might want to get a few jets. Start a couple sizes above stock to see what the custom pipes are doing. Then bump dow ...

First of all this is impossible to figure out on line without the bike so I'm an idiot for responding but I disagree with Brooke. Surprise!

Who knows what has been done to this bike? It is a 1972! ...

But on the flip side I have not had any issues with SAVA white walls. I've gone through 3 sets on my GS with no problems. Proper tire inflation is critical with any tire but even more so with tube ...
