I would agree with hypercharger. I'm not huge on spikes.

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, 'Wow! What a Ride!

I don't see a lot of room on the Raider in front of the tank because the forks nearly hit the tank when turned. 

Maybe another option is under the headlight or in that area, and route a flexible hose back to the frame or have some sort of plastic duct with pivot point for fork rotation.

The cool this about making this fit the HD CV carb bolt pattern is that there are Hundreds of different air cleaner designs you can use. Hypercharger, Spike, K&N, almost endless. Here a few we put on other models http://www.lowandmean.com/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.browse&category_id=14&Itemid=60

I know this thread is pretty much dead but raider58 has a functional right side air spike. maybe email him and see what he ran into when making his.
If you cant fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
