Default 2010 Kingpin air filter

I ordered a replacement oem air filter for my Kingpin to change out at 10,000 miles. When I pulled the existing one out, it's got a wire screen on it like a K&N (it's not red like K&N). The oem one doesn't have the screen. Is the existing filter a performance filter? I have a Victory 2 in 1 performance exhaust.

K&Ns are actually white, what makes them red is the oil, so if it has a wire screen and the element looks like cotton, is for sure a K&N that hasn't been oiled in a while!! post a picture to be 100% sure!!

It looks like a K&N to me. Although, not real well maintained. I hope the oil and the rest of the bike is better.

Purchased it with 4400 miles. Changed the oil regularly after that. What model number is the K&N?

that one might work if you clean it and oil it properly, for the model you'll have to go to K&N's web site I don't know the part number
