Is it worth putting K and N filters on

Hi all

Question are K and N air filters worth putting on . If you do , do you have to do any further mods

Cheers

I installed them at 8K service with no other mods, working OK so far but only have about 50 miles on new filters FWIW

Fitted them last year....are they worth it ? No idea, but theyll hopefully pay for themselves while I own the bike.

If you don't go in dust they should be ok if you go in dust they don't work as good as the stock filters.

I was at Powercommander a few weeks ago and their opinion was that OEM filters on bikes are now much better and you wouldn't see any improvement by fitting an aftermarket one.

I agree & much less maintenace, I did a 3500 klm trip through some of the worst bull dust in the country, pulled the filters when I got home & by the looks of them they could of done another trip, absolutly no dust had penertrated the filters & the intake was still spotless, try that with an aftermarket filter, honda designers new what they were doing when they made the air intake system, great filtration & low maintenace

Does anyone make a removable pre-filter for the big stuff (wasps, etc,) that might fit in the inlet? Would be nice to have something you can just pull and wash to extend the life.

Heck no! Hold one up to the light and assess. Then decide how often you are willing to remove, clean, and re-oil them. I have used them, but haven't for a very long time.
