I have about 15 of these now, I'm lazy and don't like cleaning filters, when I get 20 I will clean them all, oil them and store them in ziplock bags, then I have 20 filter changes again with no cleaning involved, never had a problem with them, only use no toil products with these filters or they may come apart .

As stated by others, the sizing is way off for some models. I got the 48mm pods for my ZRX 1200, based on the sizing recommendation. The ZRX carb diameter is 50mm so I assumed that had already been taken into account by the manufacturer - but clearly not. After a fairly exhausting fight and lots of WD40/ grease and a little blood (the wire mesh is sharp) I got the pods on.

The filter fits my sv650 just fine, but the "convenient" nut on the end that lets you remove it with a regular socket just came off the filter when it was time to swap it out for a new one. So i had to use a regular oil filter wrench. Not something you would expect from an "upmarket" product which K&N wants you to believe they are.

Bought this for a 2008 Yamaha R6S. The product advertised is just for the spongy part of the air filter, but not the entire mount assembly. The filter itself seemed the same quality as the OEM. The hard part about the instillation is removing the old spongy piece because it is riveted between the top and bottom plastic piece. Once I drilled out the rivets instillation was easy, took out the old sponge, oiled the new one as the package said, and stuck it where it should go. The only thing I was worried about was I didn't have a way to hold the filter between the 2 plastic pieces, luckily I looked at the top of the airbox and there are a few pegs that seem to prevent the top piece of plastic from getting bumped around once installed. Overall I haven't had any problems and would buy this filter again vs paying about 60-70$ for an entire assembly when all you need is spongy filter part.

Have installed many Cobra kits without problem as I am a Yamaha tech for a living. The Barons kit has a poor fit between fittings and housing. Threads are not a tight match. Must use teflon tape to seal. Had unit on and off 3 times. Buy the Cobra Engineering kit and save yourself some heartache and a lot of extra work.
