Forgive my ignorance of such things, but don't K&N do a variety of filters, Cones, Round, Oval, all of which could come in the right fitting to go on that carb?

My advise would be to fit a Mini air box with a K&N element inside. The K&N cone filter is very noisy and I soon tired of it, fitted the Mini item as described and a lot quieter with no obvious drop off in performance.
Kieth Calver wrote a very interesting article comparing the K&N cone with a standard air box and one with extra holes drilled in it. From what I remember the K&N cone didn't perform as well as the other two.
