K&N Filter XVS 650

Discussion in 'Maintenance and Servicing' started by smidsy, Mar 14, 2012.

  1. Hi Guys,
    I bought a K&N air filter for my XVS650, the filter does not have the locking tab that slides under the clip to locate the filter.
    The dealer I bought the filter from (I won't name the dealer but it's a factory franchise) says this tab is just to locate the filter until the cover is on.
    Is this true or have I been stiffed with a fake?
