Default Is this worth it?

Hey guys, i was thinking about getting a new intake for my bonnie and was wondering if this is worth it, i saw it on ebay for $75.00 and wondered if it was a good deal or just a fake. Feedback would be appreciated.

Good price, the K&N you are looking for $40 alone

Looks like a good setup, the only issue may be length of the pipe. You want the filter as close to the headlight as possible.

That pipe is going to be pretty short, but the filter looks good

The pipe is about $40 and a filter is whatever you buy that fits a 3" pipe. All you need is a hacksaw/dremel/anglegrinder and a screwdriver.
