Anyone omne have any opinions on the weather to go with a foam filter or the K&N :3question:. I've always delt witth the foam filters (UNI). I'm going with the Pro Design but not sure which I would gain more. Thanx
??????? That makes No sence. So by using the foam filter, its somehow being exposed to less dust then the K&N in the same scenario? Why wouldnt you clean them both just as much? K&N's actually filter better once slightly dirty compared to perfectly clean....and they flow a hell of a lot more then a foamy.....not to mention they are WAAAAAY easier to clean, and last forever!!W69DY said:Go with the pro design foam system because the K&N system allows way to much in. If you use the K&N, you ahve to clean it all the damn time, it sucks. With the pro design system and the outer wear, you only have to clean every other ride or every 3rd ride. Just me two cents. I have seen a couple of 660 blow up because the K&N allowed to much pass. Later WOOD
Foamies filter better....I'll give you that...but at a decrease of performance. If you run an outerwears on the k&N it significantly reduced anything getting threw the filter.weewane said:I agree they both need cleaning just as often depending on your riding conditions. But where I disagree from my own experiance k&n does flow better but it will let smaller particles threw than a uni will. The uni has more surface area to catch dirt. I have a k&n on everything I ride and drive but on my raptor I am going to go with the uni on it. My 300 ex that I just blew up a month ago which had nothing to do with the filter had a k&n on it and when i started to tear the motor down I found dirt and dust deposits in the intake tube and a ring of dirt at the carb and dirt build up on the choke plate, after seeing that I am going uni. I think k&n is the best thing for street purposes but on the dirt I dont. Also I dont see where a k&n is any harder or easyer to clean than a foam filter they both take the same steps to clean.
I read acetone will melt skin.... no wait, that's plastic.... errr some plastics... oh forget it :lol:135boom said:.... because short of dipping my hands in acetone,
I don't race professionally so don't need the extra .5 hp from a K&N.
