Thanks for finding that form CR. I was looking for it earlier and couldn't find it. I also just did a search for an AF using the basic dimensions of the stock filter but not nearly as high and it said they had nothing in that range of dimensions. Oh well.

No problem.
Hope we get their attention that there's a need here. Enough petitions will do the trick.

Why do you want K&N air filter?????
You know the stock filter flows as much air as a K&N and it get just as dirty as a stock filter.
You think your going to gain horse power? Maybe one horse or maybe two if that.
Are you going to save money? Maybe in four years.
So your going to tell me your going to wash your K&N and let it dry for a day and reoil it.
A stock air filter you pull out once a year blow it out with air and put it back in.
When you can buy a stock air filter for a cheaper price and put it in the day you buy it.
K&N $59.95 Stock air filter $15.36 so by the forth filter ya you could have had a K&N and don't for get the air filter oil so will say fifth filter.
I just don't see the reason for a K&N.

Really? So the dyno results have all lied?

So there is a power gain even though they only flow the same volume of air as the stock? Wow. Where does the extra 1 or 2 horsepower come from?

Bottom line is, dynos don't agree with what you're claiming. K&N flows more air than stock air filter. But, if you like your pony muzzled up, fine with me. I'm not bashing on your choice. Would be nice if you'd be respectful for those of us who want a better air filter and not bash on us either.

Almost every bike I have owned gets or got a K&N air filter. Tried some of the oil foam ones before,never really pleased me. Installed the oil foam ones on my old Guzzi and they got old. Started the old MotoGuzzi one day after it had not been running for awhile. It sucked those old oil foam filters right into the engine. I will stick with the K&N air filters after that experience.

Here's the link to the form on K&N's website.

Thank you for helping out!
Done, replacing the air filter appears to be a complicated process on the XC...
