When the f%#& is there going to be an air filter available for the K5??? BMC or K&N -- doesn't matter. I think I've seen that a few of you across the pond from us have them? Is that true?

Don't bother. Stick with the OEM Suzuki, the BMC or K&N will do nothing but flow more dirt into your engine and maybe give you .5 HP increase. Is it worth it to you?

There's been alot of testing that acually shows a loss of horsepower with an aftermarket filter. I'm sticking w/ the OEM Filter on my 05' 1000

Why do you need one? You live in a dusty climate? K&N will drop hp, as will BMC std.
have you done any dyno runs yet to show this?
Well yes I have..... done the dyno runs myself. I'll see if I can find the time to post them.
thanks, that will help. did you map the stock filter? did you do a run with the bmc with the stock mapping? did you map the bike after the bmc filter. I guess im just looking for all variables that played a part.

thanks

I just ordered the BMC race filter with the PC3 and a map for both the filter and my Arrow Ti... that should give a few more HP...
