2 questions about my 2009 honda CB400. Replace airbox and bar end mirror adjustment...hey

  1. hey all

    Ive picked up a cb400 as a daily great bike.

    anyway , firstly I was wondering what are the logistics of replacing the standard airbox with 4 smaller cone filters ? Is it essentially a direct fit and little issues ? Ive noticed a couple of vacuum tubes for perhaps the PCV system or oil catch - these would be eliminated. What about a return for the charcol canister etc? Being a EFI bike i would think it would respond the same way a car responds to a aftermarket air filter....perhaps increased induction noise and slight poke increase.
    Would 4 pods be deemed a worthwhile mod ? Would this , coupled with a nicer free flowing can give a good increase in response/ noise ? And finally would this intake mod + muffler be adjusted to like any EFI ECU does over time ?

    Next , i have removed both my mirrors and replaced the RHS with a RIZOMA reverse mirror. It sits on the standard bar end fine , but ive noticed the bar end actually has a very slight amount of rotational play in it ( same either side ) which ends up with the daily need to adjust the mirror. Any ideas as to how firm up the standard bar end ? Or should i be looking at an aftermarket one to fit this mirror ?

    any thoughts greatly appreciated !

    thanks ben
