Default K&N Filter

Has anyone used a K&N air Filter without a fuel controller on your Cruiser?

yes all kinds of us. If you ride dirt roads or live in dusty country stay with stock its better for your bike

Thanks for the reply. I was under the assumption that when a hi flow air filter is used it has an effect on the air fuel mixture.
as far as my riding area, nothing but 2 and 4 lane black top for me.

My bike has a k&n air filter and I don't have a fuel controller. It seems to run just fine without it

That's good to know. Tune up time coming next month, it's been 3 years since the last one.

I'll tell this much for what you'll spend on the K&N it will not be worth it. Your bike will not be faster and it will lean it out a bit so maybe you'll get one more mile per gallon. Stay with stock and you'll be just as happy. Clean the throttle bodies and you'll be farther a head

Cleaning the throttle body is number one on my list. As far as the filter go's i got a great deal on good old eBay for 35 bucks shipped. sealed in its original packaging.

I have them on all my C bikes, they are available on Ebay for $35 shipped. yeah they're used but so what. If you're not putting on a less restrictive exhaust, it won't lean it out much at all. All of mine run great with stock exhaust clean throttle bodies and K&N.

I'll be selling 2 more of them soon, just not sure which. That way I can buy more!

I had a stock one when I bought the bike but the bike came with an upgraded chip and open pipes...so figured I by one to complete a "Stage 1" package and installed it...in the long run it will be cheaper since I ride ~4-5K miles per year...didn't notice much difference
