Air Filter for R1

Discussion in 'Modifications and Projects' started by Sinner, Jan 7, 2009.

  1. I was looking to get an after market Air filter for my bike, hopefully one that increases performance but I’m not too sure which one to get?

    Also would I need a DYNO tune after I get this installed?

    Thanking you in advance

  2. If I was you, I would just get a Fireblade.
  3. Good thing your not me
  4. All bikes are the same to me .. the differences are which one gives you more BJ then booty or to users preference
  5. I prefer the 'bmc race' air filters. If you combine it with a free flowing exhaust then a dynotune may be required to get the fueling perfect again -and I wouldn't even bother unless it makes annoying flatspots.

    Also, I'd have gotten a fireblade too ;)
  6. Death to all fireblade, long live the YZF R1
  7. Thanks for that mate,

    was wondering if you know the difference between the filter youmention and the K & N filter?
  8. Just get one, if you think that more HP is the answer.
