K&N Air Filter damaging to bike vs Stock?
I tried to seach but couldn't find it, but there is a thread here about K&N filter being more damaging to your bike than the stock as with logic, increased air flow, means bigger spacing in the filter and it obviously allows more dirt particles to flow through.
Someone said that with a K&N they're good for the track as tracks have less day to day dirt, but when riding in the street, there is just a lot more shit that the bike picks up, and over time the inside of the engine is all scratched n worn more, than if you had a stock air filter.
Can anybody shed any more light on this please?
