Velocity air filters

Does anyone have any experience or opinions regarding Velocity air filters? They look pretty slick. I was wondering about their quality as compared to a K&N. I was going to go with a Uni until I recently cleaned and oiled my stocker...man I HATE cleaning and oiling foam filters. Anyway, Velocity has them for sale on their ebay store, as well as Alba.

im not a mechanic ... im fluent with suspension & steering ... had to have a kawasaki mechanic put it on ... it fits so snugly that you question if it is supposed to fit that way...but it does fit.

Ill ask the kawasaki mechanic what he did to fit it.

talk to the guys there at alba ... they are slow to respond to emails, but they are very good at explaining things ..and sell a bunch of stuff for the xx.

Does anyone know if the existing EFI module will compensate for the additional air if you install an aftermarket air filter and don't add a pipe or a programmer?

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure it will compensate for small changes like that, atleast that's what I understand on some other models.

If you looked at the OEM filter setup, you'd be amazed at how any air gets thru it at all. I would think that the air flow would be more than doubled with a gauze type filter. Funny how when the efi machines started to hit the market a big deal was made about how you could add a pipe and an air filter and the stock efi system would compensate on its' own. It quickly changed to the required addition of an aftermarket efi controller. I would hope that the factory computer would increase the fuel to adjust for the increase in airflow, but who knows?
