Really,great place to save a buck why would 5 dollars matter on a lubrication system that determines engine life
Besides compared to magical racing mirrors you can get fifteen sets of emgo's.
Btw the k&n 203 ? is $12.50 @ Ducati Mpls and has a 17 mm hex for proper torqe and also has a safeteywire hole !!!
OEM filters have a properly spec'd bypass spring if required and higher quality components like stamped caps, silicone seals, fine filter media with ample pleating & length for flow & filtration to maintain the engine in a manner consistent with the designers requirements.
Honda OEM filter
Aftermarket filters are made with cheap components like this FRAM filter with glued cardboard endcaps on a course filter media that is not only shorter, but has less pleats as well. In my experiences I have seen more than one crappy aftermarket filter come apart and clog cam journals starving a top end for oil
My bad I assumed we were talking about oil filters.
I would definitely not be using any other brand of air filter in the RC51 either as we have proven years ago that K&N filters actually hurt performance versus the OEM air filters.
The airbox is basically a musical instrument tuned to a specific resonance to aid in reducing turbulence inside the box which helps to atomize fuel properly as it enters the cylinders. Screwing around with that on any production bike made in the last 20 years usually proves to be an exercise in futility at least where stock engines are concerned.
Yea, apologies on the confusion folks. Was hoping someone, knew exactly what they were when they saw the link and ran with them at some point. Im putting my steed back together and its missing all types of small bits, these emgos just make the check out a bit smaller, I hate to run aftermarket parts internally but im a po boy for now ....ive ordered them and should be here soon....

I want to run this by you guys for some help.
On My 2000 RC51, the brake lever was nice and firm, but the fluid was horrible. On top of that I needed to put new pads on it too. I cleaned the calliper pistons, but didn’t remove them. Pushed them back in after cleaning and installed new...
Ive done a lot of bike decals over the years, but nothing like this one damn decal. I need to replace the decals on my SP1 now its back from paint, but this one has me sweating buckets. Picture below is of my SP2 for reference.
The worrying part is how much I will need to shrink the decal...
