    Not necessarily... The larger jets just correct the A/F ratio to compensate for the increased air flow so you don't run lean.
    However, in most cases when fitting a less restrictive intake ( pod filters, largers carbs etc) you do gain some top end power as most airbox systems ( due to space restrictions ) don't allow the full designed pumping potential of the engine to be achieved.
    If the airbox can supply the engines full pumping capacity then you won't see any gains..

    As for using pods on CV carbs.
    It's not the increased air that causes the problems but the separate intake pulses causing fluctuations on each individual diaphragm .
    CV's prefer a still air supply so creating a singular higher flowing smooth air supply from a modified airbox that acts evenly across the carb bank is the way to go..

        Yes! It's a common mod when the original airbox design and space allows..

            My 1100E came to me with a big single K&N filter on the front half of the airbox and the rear half removed. You can see the filter with the side panel removed, below:
