Haven't taking the bike out much since installing it. But also added a power commander and full exhaust. So unsure of what difference is being cause by the air filter itself since I changed it all in one day. But you can see the different between the stock filter and the yamaha performance air filter. That stock filter had about 450 miles on it when I changed it out.Anyone have any comments on the air filter? Any noticeable difference?
Got mine installed today FINALLY.
This filter is superior to the KN I mentioned 'may' work in this thread hereKN Air filter
Because the pleats run the opposite direction, the build of the rubber frame is far less flimsy than the KN, so bending in the middle shouldnt be an issue.
Also this Yam OE Performance filter has a slightly thinner frame with softer sealing rubber edge which seats nicely under the lip in the back of the air box.
Id recommend this filter over the KN any day. But Id still like to hear about the quality of construction and fitment of the BMC filter.
I noticed that on mine as well, I wasnt gonna mention it as I wasnt 100% sure.. The construction is very similar to the KN I mentioned in another thread but the sealing edge is far superior.The blue Yamaha accessories filter is actually made by K&N. KN is also stamped right on it in the rubber
Higher flow filter = more air = lean mixture = overheating = BAD. Get a dyno tune setup for this ASAP. You can burn out your rings really easily running lean.i Install two different "performance" air filter are K&N and this one because with the paper oem one dirty my throttle response is really bad and i found this differences:
- More Torque
- Better Throttle response
- My R3 sounds difference like more crispier so i like that.
- Gauge of heat is going crazy like five bars or four when idle after 10 minutes ride, and if i run it like really hard during fifteen minutes when idle is five bars blinking so i think that the PCV or Bazzaz tunning is required cause the mix is to lean.
- Smells like burn and like one the bike is new and i can see my oil when to slight brown to darker.
that's correct but only want to test it to see the results, actually running OEM paper filter that cost me 14.89$ at yamaha dealer here, but still this bike is an oven on the hot tropical weather of Panama.Higher flow filter = more air = lean mixture = overheating = BAD.
