apparently they're both the same... or so i've been told by a known shop..

i got the GYTR, just cause..

used to run BMC, i doubt it makes much difference {perf. wise} between filter manufacturers..

They are all close to the same. BMC is the most popular with sportbikes while K&N is with cars. I would wait until your oem one needs replaced and then look at a BMC, but use up the oem one before purchasing one is my advice.
