did you mean "ken" or "k&n?" if you meant k&n, not much difference between our replacemnt filters and k&n (both add minimal horsepower but are cleanable). now if you are comparing to our race airflow system, then it is a big difference. with our race airflow system you will pick up 5-6 rwhp (11 rwhp on an "r" model) along with improved throttle response and better drivability.

Ok... now I'm curious...
If the S makes more hp then the R with the ram air.. how does the R make more hp then the S with your filters? just curious is all.. I'll be placing orders soon for the race system and akra full Ti system Bike is approx 1 week away...

the "r" is neutered from the factory (only one air intake). our kit converts it to dual air inlets (just like the "s") so it gains back the lost h.p..

I don't trust K&N airfilters. They appear to be made of cotton fiber and after usage and washing the fibers seperate and very small holes develop in the filter media. This will let small dust particles pass through. This has been my son's experience with the K&N filter he ran on his truck. I removed it and installed a good quality Wix or Purolator. Stick with the BMW filter or a known good quality aftermarket filter. I think the K&N is only a gimik and may damage your engine.

What is the purpose of posting obscenities on this web site? Are you trying to impress me?

Yes, please keep it clean, even though you meant it as a compliment...your gonna scare poor Ken off!

As for K&N, someone on the CBR 1000 site showed a dyno where they actually lost ponies, but with the BMC filters gained ponies. I believe Ken uses the BMC filters, but with his kit, you eliminate the noise tubes and for the R, change it to a dual air set-up.
