Well i dont know if i should be posting here or somewhere else on the forum ????
Here goes I have a 98 R1
Im getting a service soon and am thinking of putting in a air cleaner what type do you guys recommend (K&N,BMC or stick with the stock) only mods i have done are i gutted out the stock pipe and am putting a dyno jet kit in with this service also.
The bike is mainly used on the street maybe 2 track days a year if im lucky

do a search on aircleaners for more info, but i use a k&n on my 98.

Have a K & N on my 02..BUT have heard that they dont give AS good airflow as some others. Having said that though,Im sure that the hp diffenerce wouldnt be very much at all:fact
As Dr.R1*My new nick for Greggy:p*suggested,run a search:yesnod

get a BMC Street filter, i have had a K&N on my gixxer (needs a jetting kit for it, that is also with a full system) a BMC race filter on my TLR, and now a BMC street filter on my R1, main difference between the BMC street and race filters is that the race filter lets in more particles compared to the street version. also only the 02 - 03 R1's, the street filter gives better airflow into the throttle bodies then the race version.
but the best thing bout them is that they are reuseable.. just clean and oil them every time ya service or give the bike a oil change..

ok.....does changing the airfilter actually give any noticeable power increase....i mean i have had the stock airfilter in mine since i got the bike (@5,500k's now on nearly 30,000k's) and all i do is clean it with compressed air everytime i change my oil and filter (every 3,000k's)
now i understand that an aftermarket filter will probably increase the amount of air into the carbs/inlet manifold but wont that just screw with your air/fuel mixtures and require you to either jet the carbs or remap the fuel injection??.....

yup, specially with a full system, you would need to rejet/remap.. or need to get a jetting kit as most times the stock needles in the carbs wont give you the right mixture..
