If you are basically running a stock machine, run the OEM filter.

If you are running a full system, PCIII, and maybe doing some intake mods, then I am running the BMC race filter. BUt my bike is race/track only.

If I were street riding, I would not change anything.

I only use a K&n because I can clean it and don't have to go buy new ones all the time. Never did it for a performance gain.

:plusone: keep the stocker but remove the metal screen. This is what the Kawi racing manual calls for, the stock gets great flow too!

i know the 05/06 kawi race manual says to pull off metal screen & reinstall filter, apparently the stock filter flows good enough for the race team, so thats what i did :D

i'm sure your boys aren't running a stock bike either...

do the jumper mod and it will give you more umff in the upper rpm's and go -1 on the front sprocket (about $40) to give you more umff in the low end. then go for a ride. if you are still getting crushed then you need to get more experience riding... ride safe or :buzzsaw:

well one cbr is stock and one has a leo vince exhaust..they r both quicker than mine..but im gonna try removing the air filter screen,do the jumper mod and the -1 front sproket.it sounds to me like this will be enough to spank'm and the best part is that it'll run me under $60 bucks!....LMFAO!:Laughing rolling:
