What are you wanting it for? Power? Not going to get anything out of it. If you want the sound, get a panel filter and remove the silencer in the fender well.

Yes K&N, HKS, or some other type of air filter will do.

You dont need it. But it does help for you to hear the sound better. I have never done it, and havent looked/seen of people doing just a panel and driving around, the doing the intake silencer and driving around to compare.

MotoGP makes a elbow that replaces the factory silencer one.

Or you could throw me a few bucks and I'll ship you my stock snorkus and you can cut it up and modify it so it looks like those fancy aftermarket elbows for a fraction of the cost. Plus, you'll have your stock snorkus in case you ever want to revert back to stock.
