Gasbox Dog Dish Air Cleaner Overview
In this article, we show an overview of the Gasbox Dog Dish air cleaner, motorcycle carburetor support brackets (which are available for many Harley-Davidson model and carburetor combinations), and Lowbrow Radius Breather Bolts.
If you do not have a support bracket on your earlier carburetor, you can end up having issues with the manifold loosening up and the carb sagging. The Gasbox Dog Dish Air Cleaner, shown here, is made here in Cleveland, Ohio, USA.
It includes the spun and polished aluminum cover, a stainless steel mesh air cleaner that is cleanable and reusable and a steel backing plate.
This gives you some more information on the products and lets you see them a little more thoroughly than just standard photos!
Also included is stainless steel hardware for mounting the air cleaner to your throttle body on the EFI bikes or your carburetor such as a CV. These air cleaners are available for the CV and EFI as well as S&S Super E and G carburetors.

How to Install Gasbox Dog Dish Air Cleaner
In this section Jesse Bassett, the proprietor and talent behind The Gasbox in Cleveland, Ohio will shows you how easy it is to install a Gasbox Dog Dish Air Cleaner, Gasbox CV Carburetor Support Bracket and Lowbrow Customs Radius Evo Breather Bolts.
This quick project takes minimal time and can be completed with basic tools in your home garage in less than an hour.
Here are what you need to do:
- First, you want to install the breather bolts. The Lowbrow Breather Bolts need a quarter inch allen socket to install. These take a mesh filter element that just pushes in and is held in place with the snap ring. You'll need a set of snap ring pliers, small tipped, obviously.
- You also need to remove the upper mounting screw for the throttle body support bracket, there is a clearance tissue to the back of the air cleaner.
- We want to use one of the Phillips screws provided. You can also reuse the gasket from your stock air cleaner or you can get a new gasket. Depending on the year of the bike, the stock gasket is probably in good enough shape.
- You also want to use blue Loctite on all of this hardware. The air cleaner comes with a nice mesh element, mounting screw and a fiber washer underneath the mounting screw.
