Its so simple you dont even need pics. take out the old air box, get a 4" diameter piece of pvc tubing.....about 4 inches long or so. insert one end of the pvc into the old intake tube and the other end into the new air filter....very easy. but if pics are what you need, just search a little more on the forum and you will find exactly what you are looking for. Good luck!

Here is what mine looks like. Super simple like maddog said. I have a red riff raff filter cover on it now.

I cut it all out of there. I'll get a pic this evening.
Personally I'd use a Baldwin or Donaldson filter since they are water resistant.
Also do the Zoodad mod to get the best out of this.
Mounting Band for 8-1/2" Air Cleaner or Muffler - PowderCoat I got that to keep it up off the fender and get a little more air flow.
T-Bolt Clamp for 4" ID Intake Hoses
Constant-Torque Hose Clamp 3.75"-4.625"
I'd also get one of those kinds of clamps to hold the air filter on the exhaust tubing because the end of that filter is hard. A normal hose clamp won't cut it.

Mine just sits in there without being held down. It looks like the hood presses down on it. Its not going anywhere.
