Hi,
Everything I own that has an air filter on it, from my Snapper Lawnmower to my three cars, to my 1981 GL 1100 all have K&N Airfilters on 'em. It DOES make a difference.

Just my $0.02 worth though...

I also have an 08 with loopz and torqmaster pipes (daytonas I think)...I tried the k&n filter, but noticed absolutely no difference with the stock vs the k&n...only thing I did notice was the extra oily mess I encountered in the airbox the next time I needed a change---because the filter is so deep under the covers, I do not see the need to spend the money on the filter and have to pull it and service it more often than the stock filter. The stocker is like $12, so I tossed the k&n in favor for the stock again.

I have k&n filters in a lot of my toys, but I've decided that the wing is not one of them.

To each his own.
Extra air flow allowing more "no-nos" through, also is not what I want for my motors! But then, when have you ever heard of any air filter being the cause of an engine failure????

Hmmm, A test done scientifically. It has intrigued me and given me pause for thought... My world might not crumble around me, but one of it's pillars has been cracked....

My hat is off to you sir, thanks for the article links.
