Wow, nice find! I guess the K&N and Uni brands are bad for the bike?

I only understand what I don't understand.

Not if we want a washable, reusable filter. I didn't check to see if they were all oiled filters, a mix, or what. We can't get paper filters for the earshave, I don't think.

Looks like the Uni fared better than K&N on some of the charts. But I'll bet they aren't the models we're using.

I just checked my plugs and air filters maybe 1/2 hour ago and my uni's are nearly dry! After 200 miles, roughly, they need to be re oiled. I hope K&N filter oil works ok, otherwise, I'll have to run them dry until I get uni's oil.

I only understand what I don't understand.

Haven't touched mine yet to see, but I did use K&N spray oil that I've had on the shelf since the early 90s. Have only oiled them once so far, gotta check, have close to 200mi on them.

Is that the 2-1 under the tank?

I'd probably try an AC plug too.

Yup for now, thinking of doing one on each side later on down the road

I thought about using a single filter, but wanted the performance look the pods give. Plus, they have direct access to cool air. I'd be concerned about engine heat hindering performance by keeping the air too warm.

I only understand what I don't understand.
