    Just got one of these to replace the manky one in my Dakar, it comes with a foam insert to use with standard fuelling. Anyone here using a K+N? If so did you use the insert or leave it out? I'll put it in unless i hear good things to the contrary, Thanks, Nick :)

    Just checked the air filter on my ST. All very clean and with the foam slightly tacky and in good condition. But then it struck me ( it probably is a daft question this) where does the air come from to pass through the filter? it appears to be in a sealed box. Would someone enlighten me?

    If i fit a K&N air filter to a twin spark Dakar, can i run it without the foam insert without retuning? If not, is there much point in fitting one?

    I have been monitoring my performance recently and in particular my air filter. Here are some interesting facts. 1. A dirty air filter reduces my mpg by around 10-15% (from 60mpg to 52mpg) 2. The paper filter was only good for about 1,500 miles. At this point, I found the performance a bit...

    Hi guys. I just fitted a Green air filter bought off the bay. It's a huge improvment! I fitted a remus can a few weeks ago and the bike has been running rich and a bit lumpy. I replaced the carb manifold not to long after the can, still popping a banging a bit though. The Green filter (which I...

    Hi Guys/Gals, Any one out there got any views on the best air filter I can fit to my 650GS. I have a Remus exhaust system fitted and am wondering if it would be better to fit something like a K & N air filter? Cheers Mark…

    Background: My F650-GS is nothing short of fantabulous. It has been absolutely faultless through all of the 4,000 miles since I owned it. Current Problem: The other day I jumped on board to go see my girlfriend and when I hit the Starter button, the engine roared in to life (as usual) but then...
