Air Filter

#1 PostAuthor: AlanB » Tue Feb 06, 2018 8:23 pm

Was thinking about replacing the stock filter on my z1000 A2 with K&N pod types which I think look good - Is this easy to do and what else do I need to consider.Are K&N the best option and what size do I need to look for ? Cheers all. :blah

Standard air box is better than pods - less likely to get blocked.

Link to k&n pod filters, not cheap.
