I have a 2010 FXSTC and I am trying to learn as much about my bike as I can, so far it has been a great experience.

I decided to replace my S&S teardrop air-filter with a new Arlen Ness 90 degree filter setup - namely: Arlen Ness 81-000 Air Filter 90deg Big Twin'93up w/CV Carb or w/Dephi EFI (exc TBW'08up) Black.

The issue I am having is, the new filter setup has gone one smoothly but I am left with the two breather hoses that were attached to the bracket bolts in the head.
Can I simply remove the 'T' join (there are two hoses one to each bolt from a T joint) and make one single hose to vent into the Atmosphere?

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated as I do not know what to do from here :)

Both rocker boxes need to be vented. However you do it the hoses should vent into the AC so the vapor goes into the intake.

Thanks heaps for replying.

So.. the new AC I got, the bolts don't have any facility to act as a vent? So I am unsure how to plumb the tubes to the AC (it has no fittings for this etc.)
Someone told me to simply run the hose to the underside of the engine, I was not sure so needed to ask for advice :)

Is there another option?

/EDIT

I just found this info:

Our Monster Sucker 90° air cleaner kit features a massive forward facing filter design and our patented hidden breather backing plate for maximum performance gains
Our patented hidden breather technology are o-ringed at the heads and exist out the mouth of the injector/carb to provide efficient engine breathing, eliminating the need for any external hoses or hardware

Does this mean I can simply remove those hoses?

Also remove the stock bolts the hoses are attached to. Use the new supplied bolts to secure the new back plate to the heads, wipe a bit of engine oil on the o-rings too.
