Go to the thumbnails view of your album, and hover (don't click) on an image. You'll see a Share/Copy menu appear underneath. Click on the box labeled IMG Code, and that will copy the right thing. Go to the post you are editing, and just paste it in.

I'll have to take the front wheel off to get good pics. I'll do it this weekend.

It's a chrome box from Jegs w a spectre filter. Got it pointing up so nothing gets in it .

I wanted to do something to get cool air, and just be different.

I love the way it runs, really comes on strong around 3500 RPMs and up. I romped on it and before I knew it I was running 110 MPH. It really feels stable.

I'm running a 3:55 gear. The wheels look like 14's but they are 16's w 205-50-16 tires. So, at 60 MPH, I'm about 2000 RPM's. I'm planning on going with a set of American Racing Torque Thrust wheels and taller tires.

I went with the GPS speedometer in the Classic Instruments cluster, so, I can change things up and not affect my speedo.

I couldn't be happier with this combo, and I'm happy with performance. I'll have to update with MPG info.

I used a filter box from Jegs part # 865-9831 and made a bracket to hold it up against the top of the inside of the fender, bolted to the inner fender.

Here are a couple of pics
