CV stands for constant velocity. You need the "back pressure" you get from the stock air filter.

this thread is pretty close to my situation. bought my bike with a d&d slip on already installed. air box is still factory but im not sure if it had a jet kit installed or not. am i ok with just the d&d or should i invest in a jet kit to go with it?

I always recommend a jet kit, but is it necessary with just a slip on? No. Would I install one? Yes.

How does it sound??? Loud and upgrading the filter makes tuning a pain I've been inside my carbs at least 30 times re adjusting to compensate for my pods and open exhaust... I got it where I'm happy but I'm sure it by no means perfect. If your budget minded and want something louder look into slip ons or hit up ebay for a used pipe set.

DO NOT change the factory air filter to anything aftermarket. Use the stock air filter.

Yea, it didn't look like wreckie was promoting the idea of any but stock filter.
