Air filters? BMC??

Well...since i ordered a yosh pipe....i want a filter to go with it.....

i was looking at the BMC filters but the only version they offer for my bike is the "Race" version...and im pretty sure they mention i need to retune the fuel map to use it safely?

I dont feel like like tuning the bike or spending another 300 on a PC right now...just spent 600 in the past 2 days on stands/serv manual/ and a pipe....i gotta stop soon...lol

whats a good pipe/filter combo for a 600 without having to remap anything....just install and go.

I use a UNI filter on my 7R. It's re-usable. I seen the BMC air filters but felt no need for a "race filter" or spend that type of dough for one.

I hear the BMC is the best thing out. But don't be surprised that when you put your full system on the bike runs... um.... differently. Then if you put a high flow air filter into the mix... it will most likely run like crap...

Your bike is setup with a certain amount of air in/ fuel in/ air out ratio... you already are going to change the air out... if you change the air in... that's 2 out of 3 with a adjustment!

GM...i didnt get a "full" system....i got the yosh bolt-on only!...thats why i was thinking that an air filter and just a bolt-on should be ok together..

no headers yet...waiting for a little bit...maybe next year instead of trading in the bike i will go with the akrapovic evolution system!!!

for now i just want a couple extra ponies and a more aggressive tone.

OIC...my bad... I wouldn't do it... just the exhaust note along will make you feel like your faster. You could... but I think it might play with your bikes performence a bit... but who knows... do it...worse case scenario you can take it back out...

you need to check your specs...in some cases, your FI was designed to work with specific inputs and outputs, like GM says...and changing the air filter, even to one that might be considered "better" than OEM might cost you performance because it does not provide the proper inflow. If you are going to spend money on changing your intake and exhaust...you need to be able to remap the FI or you could end up with less than you started with...in both your bike and your wallet...

Yep... and that's why I'm not doing pipes on my chop yet cause I want to do the pipes, filter, intake, and jet kit all at once with a good dyno tune. DO IT RIGHT or sit down!
