I went to a dealer Saturday to pick up some oil and a filter. Figured while I was at it I better get a air filter until he told me how much it was. I figured for another $20 I'd get a K&N or BMC or something.
Same situation here in south africa ,the oem air filter is about 75% of the cost of the k&n which is reusable..its crazy paying the oem prices. check out the ronayres web site ,i think the k&n is priced at 45 $ for the 98/9 model.
Hey where is bob?? LOL I am waiting for the post about how you are going to loose power..
Anyhow.. Yea they rip you off for the stock filter and the K&N works just as good... There is a dyno chart on here someplace with a before and after a K&N filter.. no other changes... The K&N dropped .5 peak HP. To me the 50 bucks everytime I need to replace my filter isnt worth .5hp. Also, I think that if you had a map made, or jet the bike for the K&N you would get that .5hp back no problem.
