I continue to hear people bash the K&N pod filter but have not seen anyone post any proof as to why they are bad. I rode my 85 four years, all year long, every day, and cleaned and OILED them once a year as per the instructions. My motor did not die, as the last compression test it was at 150psi both cylinders(unless maybe the pods made my stator fail, lolol). According to what people say about them, the motor should be filled with large particles and be filled with scoring on the cylinder walls. If K&N filters we're so bad, wouldn't the company be out of business with all the motor's the filters destroyed? Do you know how many cafe racers and other motorcycles people have used them on? Where are all these people that have had distroyed engines? Don't you think that they would be speaking up on this over the years? I don't think K&N makes enough money to pay all these people off. Just he said she said bullfookery is all it is. Keep them clean AND OIL THEM PER THE INSTRUCTIONS. it's not the paper that does the filtering (or the foam on the UNI filter. Run an UNI without oil and see what happens). It's the oil. Rant over

It is the oil that stops the dirt. Air filter oil is stickier than motor oil.

Oversize, heavy equipment like excavators, mining machines, rock trucks, dozers as big as houses. Some take two trucks, one for the dozer, one for the blade. I liked cargo that loads/unloads itself! Hauled to some interesting locations. Loads were 120k to 200k lbs.

Seen some bs too, printer in the DOT car took two hours to print a 4ft long ticket. bzzt, bzt-bzzt, click-click, bzzzzt... It's a long story about a train derailment and coal tar filling basements of homes.
