  • Air Filter benefits

    What are the benefits of changing the air filter to one of the aftermarket types? Is remapping a necessity?

    More air throughput.
    More air in = More fuel that can be burned.
    You usually do not have to re-map, unless you put a FULL System on your bike and do other mod's.

      More air for your baby to breath. Mapping isn't really a necessity unless you have pipes etc. The fuel injection will adjust to the air filter a bit, but if you can afford it, go for it! A map usually runs for $60 depending on your source! Make sure you get a reputable guy to do it!

        I've got the 2Bros cans on the bike and am considering the K&N, How will the increased air flow affect the sound?

        Is BMC a good alternative?

          sound won't really be changed unless you take the airbox lid off

          BMC is just as good as K&N

            I think BMC is better, but is it patato or patato

            Either way, you should have a remap with your two brothers.

                  i tend to think the bmc is better than the K&N... but that is merely a gut thought, since bmc only makes bike filters

                      the other benefits to k&n or bmc filter:
                      they catch alot more dirt. the dirtier they get, the better they work
                      cheaper in the long run (but it is quite a long run) since you never replace it, just clean and re-oil it

                      2000 tillis plus stuff with some polished stuff and some carbon fiber stuff and a little bit of tlr stuff and some gsxr stuff

                        As it stands in my mind right now, BMC is better than K&N. Hell, I won't even put a K&N on my bike, I would stick with the stock air filter before using K&N. I have talked to way to many tuners and dyno operators who have not had anything good to say about K&N filters.

                          I've never heard of BMC Where's a good place to find one? Are they just as expensive as the K&N?
