Hey fellas! Its been almost 6 months since I've been on here, I've been an intern for Mercedes Benz and am in Stuttgart Germany, and yes, I miss the hell out of my 01 6r. Anyway, my question is this. I have a scorpion slip on and a factory stage 1 jet kit on my bike, I want to get a K and N filter for it when I get back the firts week of December. Since the filter will flow more air than the stock filter, will it mess up my air/fuel ratio now that I've already done the jet kit without the filter. Will the bike run too Lean?, or will it be ok if I add the filter to it, and also, has have you guys noticed any differences with your K &N filters over stock? Thanks guys. Continue to ride the hell out of your 6r's for me back home.

while many people dont feel they make a difference at all, I've seen firsthand they do lean the bike out (more airflow) so I know there is a difference. I don't think it will make enough of a difference to require rejetting at all, the stock filters are damn good already.

On my buddies old bike it was shooting fireballs all the time once we put on a new exhaust, it was too rich. Added a K&N and it recuded the fireballing a lot, as well as smoothing out the power.

They certainly are not going to help the average guy who just puts one on and does nothing else though..

Since you say the stock filter flows pretty well already, should i not worry about getting a K&N so that I dont have to worry about it running too lean now, or say fuck it and get one anyways? I just dont want to have to re-jet it because of the filter, if I would have to do that, I would just stay with stock filter.
