Block off plate?

I am new here and have owned several bikes but I finally got the bike I have wanted for a long time a 2007 VTX 1800C. It came with Cobra pipes on it and I am looking into do the air box mod. I found some plates on ebay by Baron. Is there any different between them or DLP? What do you guys recommend?

What's the difference with dimpled vs non? How do I know which one I need?

Non drilled plate you will have to remove the set screw on the reed plate. With the dimple it's just easier than to try and remove that screw. See this;

#1 in this picture is that set screw;

Agree... I'm pretty new to doing mods and I purchased these. I installed these at the same time that I installed a Kury Hypercharger. Installation of the plates was really simple. Lots of helpful info available here too. Good Luck!
