Hi everyone,
My Series II has the very cumbersome prewar Morris E Series filter which stands over the carburettor. It is not very user friendly, meaning I tend to not to touch the carburettor at all as getting the filter on is fiddly.

Are there any side mounted air filters suitable for HSU 1/2s?

You mean like this? This the K&N on a 1 1/2 SU, you have the 1 1/4" I believe.

Since Minors are subject to "upgrades," you need to confirm what carb you have. The original one is H1 with 1 being how many 1/8 inch over 1 inch. Later Minors had H2 and then HS2 with 2 being 1-2/8 or 1-1/4. If you measure the carb opening to be 1-1/4 diameter you could also use the various dry element filters that the factory used or in either case the side mounted ones as suggested.

Here is a shot of the factory filter used circa 1959-62 which takes a paper element. They are on Ebay from time to time with the aluminum elbow that mounts to the carb flange to connect to the filter housing.
