Higher velocity air filter

Is their any benefit to K&N style high velocity filters on an SP2 RC? From what I understand, that low RPM surge is a RICH surge. In fact, from what I've been told, the RC is conservatively rich through much of it's powerband. I'm keeping a tight reign on spending now, so a power commander is out of the question, but air filters might be a go.

I wouldn't do it. From all the tests that have been done on aftermarket filters and the 51, the stock filters flow more than enough air. The k&n's can actually hurt performance more often than not. If you absolutely have to have them then go for it. If I were you I would save alittle longer for the power commander, it is every bit worth the $249 you'll pay for it.

Have to agree with the above posts... save your $$ for a power commander.

MightyMax....unless your running sato's or moriwaki's thos maps above are useless. But if you are running those cans I heard they are badass maps and I can attest to that cause my buddy lead is running them on his bike and that thing moves!!!
