You've got your opinions, I have mine and we've been hashing it out for what, ten years now? And I've come back with the same comments every time. If they distroyed engines by letting dirt in, people would not buy them, and if it could be proven, there would be lawsuits. I've seen a lot of people use K&N pods on numerous bikes with none of the Ill effects you state. Like with the UNI's, you need to use filter oil, otherwise they pass dirt through them, just like with the UNI's. The only issues I've seen with K&N pods are damaged pistons from lack of tuning (too lean).

Alright, filters on, and it took it for a short ride. It revved better with the filters on (who knew, right? ). Seems like it had decent power. Only issue was a bit of hesitation when applying throttle from cruise. I won't fault it too much. It was 40 degrees and the temp gauge hardly moved during the whole ride (less than 5 miles). I'll check back in once I have a +60 degrees ride on it.
