    Uni Pods

    UP-4229 is out of stock everywhere. Conveniently, though, the Hawk uses the same ones as my Thruxton... Does anyone have a spare set of the 4" Uni Pods laying around?

    You can check into UP-4229SA. It's slightly angled and fits a little better under the tanks on the Hawk. I prefer them now days so the fuel tank doesn't smash them but not sure if they will work on your Triumph.

      That's interesting!! I'll have a look. I was pretty sure the 4" doesn't bump the Hawk tank, but I dunno. And the K&N's I have right now rub the side covers I've got on the Triumph, so the angle might be just the ticket. Thanks!!

        The "S" in the SA units stands for "snow." Different foam for snowmobiles.

          I used that model for years.

            I have also used that foam for years in multiple hawks. I’m sure somewhere along the way one of them had nitrogen in the tires too if that worries you as well.

              The stock units are usually smashed my the stock tank a little bit. I’m pretty sure not enough to make a difference overall but if they aren’t in stock and the angled ones are then that’s a decision maker

                With no undue effects from the freer-flowing foam? Okay, cool.

                  Newbie question here. What do you put in place of the small breather under the OEM airbox?

                      Are you talking about the vent that comes off the rear valve cover or the two angled hoses that run to the filter on the underside of the airbox?

                        Yes, that is exactly what I am asking about.

                          Once you take the air box off there are 2 different solutions. One is the small breather from Uni that someone linked further up and that goes on the rear valve cover vent. The other is the hose that leads to each carb from the airbox and has a filter housing on the bottom of the oem air box. For that one you can just leave the hoses pointed downwards exposed to atmosphere. They can't be plugged off or the carb slide will not work properly.
