Whats the best air filter??

Therein lies the problem. The K&N's are much more difficult to oil thoroughly (by that I mean all of the media oiled through from one side to the other, no dry spots even in the middle of 4 layers)

Yep! After a good soaking on the outside (like 2 coats with a slow hand) I lightly oil the inside just to help capillary action and get the middle layers oiled. This also helps the nooks and crannies, the hard to get inner folds on the outside are the easy to get too fold on the inside....get it?

Anyways, I know oiling a K&N is more detailed oreinted than a No-Toil, and also more expensive (iniital cost and maintenance) but I feel its worth it due to the great gains I get in the low to middle range. And since everything I own (even my weed eater) uses a K&N the cost of the oil is spread out over the whole fleet.

Now if they would only make a K&N for my wife's TTR125 I would be a very happy camper!

Quick ?.. i ended up buying the no toil fast filter.(shop ran out of moose) Should i use rim greese with this?

To the best of my knowledge, only the MOOSE filter's don't require the rim grease being applied.

I know there's also a company that offers some type of Neoprene lip you can use to avoid applying the rim grease.....can't remeber the name.

It sounds like you have the servicing down to a science lol. Good for you. It works well for you and more power to you. I was just saying that for the masses the detailed oiling procedure is too much. You sound like a person who pays a lot of attention to detail.

thanks flint. i was just seeing if that extra 18 bucks is justified at this point, but in reality its just like buying a uni or white bros at the 27 bucks a pop but with a warrenty.. thanks agian..

One thing I do recommend, is to have at least Two air filter's. It makes it nice to have one lying around, that's already to go, when you're riding a long weekend or so. Just yank out the old/dirty one, and throw in the fresh one. I always let my just oiled filter sit overnight before using it...if you don't, the non-dried oil can play havoc with the sensor.

Any of the following will serve you well:

1) Moose

2) Twin-Air

3) UNI

4) White Brother's

I just prefer the MOOSE, so you no longer gotta mess with sealing grease, plus it seems a little more sturdily built.

the k$n filter works great and is very easy to clean works great for me

ready filters are the fastest and easiest i use those alot

uni is a great filter i like the 2 indivdual pieces

twin and 123 filters are cool but i do not like em but they do the job

all ways have extras

I believe this is what your referring to...

BTW- I've used ready racing, uni, and twin air, and for me I prefer the twin air.

If your filter oil is tacky enough, you don't need grease on a YZF. I use Maxima FFT on the flange, and it never leaks.
