Air filter question

How often do you change your filters and what brand do you use?

With OEM filters, the service manual suggest every 12K miles.
However, if you live in very dusty or wet conditions, you may need to replace more often.
If you use OEM filters, order two Left filters as they don't have the rubber noise reduction cone inside. 17235-MCF-D30

Factory Honda filters. Change at the beginning of each year. They aren't cheap.

2001 RC51 Penske, Race Tech, PCIII USB, Jardine 2-1, Woodcraft, Gilles, Galfer lines, Race upper. Track Only.

2006 CBR1000 Jardine S/O, Pazzo levers. Street ride with the occasional track day for fun.
