The Right OEM air fliter, or should I say left

I know this has been covered before, but I had some confusion on which one to get and another RC owner asked about this on one of the RC51 FB pages.
So this is just to clear up any future confusion.



When ordering OEM air filters and you do not want the one with the noise deadening rubber cone that I feel also restricts air flow.

Order part number 17235-MCF-D30 It's listed under the SP2s' (2003) AIR CLEANER Diagram and does not have that cone.




I believe these will also work for SP1's, but I can not confirm this.

No more airflow. Just contribute to volume of filtered air in the airbox. They're washable & British made.
Rogue ain't the only place to go for sage advice by the way.

There is still an air restriction if you just pull the rubber piece out. My refresh thread has a link in it to the air filter differences and issues if you want to read more. https://www.rc51forums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8406

If you say Rogers has the goods, that's nice for you.

But I digress, sorry to muck up you thread James. I buy the OEM units and just pull the rubber piece out as prescribed. The other thing I do too is pull the mesh off of the outside of the filter. It got me the ~130 hp I have at the rear wheel.
Quote from Rogue.

Interesting info #1: Flow testing on the stock filters performed by Brian Sheridan of Sheridan Racing Design proved to us that the OEM filters are more than capable of flowing more air than the engine can use.



Just winding you up Mate.
Don't want to cause offence.
Sorry if I have.

You guys can argue over who has the best information on the RC all you want. But the truth is that neither of you will change the others mind.
I shared the Rogue link just to also pass on the information I believe in.

All I wanted from this thread was to get the information in my original post out for others to use.

But if someone could confirm if the D30 air filters also work for SP1's or not would be appreciated.

I've had both in my SP1 UK.
Took SP2 spec filters once because thats what the local Honda dealer had in stock. They said they would fit and they did.
