The K&N Power Filters
available for the majority of bike models are Lifetime replacement filters (with believe it or not a million mile guarantee -
The idea behind the use of a K&N is to improve the rate of gas flow through the engine.
From stock, generally the most restrictive part of a motorcycle with regard to gas flow is the Exhaust Can. Fit a Race Can or in many cases even better a Full System and the gases are immediately allowed to escape more easily.
The next most restrictive point is the Air Filter. Once an Exhaust and K&N is fitted, it is simply down to the flow of the Cylinder Head, and short of having that gas flowed you have just about reached the limits.
Although K&N filters are generally in the region of 2 to 3 times the price of an OEM filter, it is the last one you will buy.
In addition to this, the proud owners of the more recent RAMAIR bikes who's steeds will swallow anything to the size of a small elephant through the intake scoops will be pleased to hear that the filters can be washed, re-oiled and re-used. (A useful tip for RamAir bikes - Clean the filter every 1500 miles.)
