Bike wont run after air filter change

I have a gsxr 750 1990 and last year the workshop adjusted the carbs. When they adjusted the carbs, the bike had the original exhaust and original air filter. After the service i put on a yoshimura can and the bike was still running good. I have now changed the air filter from original to a hiflo and now it wont run. I drove it 30 kms after the air filter change and the bike was'nt the same, it went sour, then stopped.
Is this common? I have heard that the carbs on this bikes are very sensitive, but is it so sensitiv?

Re: Bike wont go after air filter change

More likely you've disturbed an electrical connector when removing the battery holder - check this and hopefully all will be well. A better flowing filter might cause leaner running - popping on the over-run, or hesitation, but it isn't going to stop it running.
