Whats going on, I just put a DMC full exhaust and efi on my bike and now Im looking for a intake set up. There are so many out there claiming to be the best that I dont know which way to go. I know K&N been around for ever but I feel they are very over rated. I like the velocity center air filter but I'd rather hear what people have and what they think. Any info will help.

Most guys here like the uni, and a lot are running ehs lids. The lids have outerwears on them. I have also read that k&n doesn't filter well but the lid has a prefilter so the air filter is already filtering cleaner air. They also say the uni filters cage is less resrictive than the factory cage.

I cut the top off of my lid and put a pre-filter over the whole thing and removed the baffle, i'm using uni filters for both, seems to really breathe.

Anybody have the velocity filter? How does it breath? The combination Im looking at is the velocity filter with the ehs lid. A lot of people like the Uni filters is that do to cost or5 performance or both?

I have the modquad intake with a k&n filter and the ehs lid. The k&n also has an outerwears wrap around it. I think it works pretty well.

I run a K&N with no air box and it filters great.

Does anyone worry about the crankcase breather not touching the filter with the k&n installed? I worry about dust going down the breather and into the engine.

Yeah I knew it was blowing the air but I was thinking about taking a piece of my old foam filter and putting it inside the breather tube for peace of mind.

Go to advanced auto parts, get the 4 1/2 universal fit K&N filter. Then install it using factory clamp, the end of the K&N will slide into the factory induction tube. Then throw a EHS Lid on it and ur set. BTW the filter is 35 dollars here! cheap fix

What length 4.5" universal K&N filter do you suggest, there seems to be several lengths. Do you know the K&N part number?

Also in another post someone noted that their EHS lid still allowed some dust into the air box. Is that normal? The trails I ride in GA and FL are very dusty.
