K&N oil filters

Don't know if it's any better than the pricing you're getting Wazza, but the best pricing I've found is Peter Stevens, at $15 when you order 3 or more. I used to order them from Jack Lilley in the UK, but the falling Aussie dollar has made that more expensive. Maybe Brexit will drop the pound enough to make it a good deal again.

After having one crack and spray the inside of my lower fairing, the left front rotor, and header, I won't use one again. I figured it was K&N - a reputable, performance company, when I bought the only one I ever tried.

Must have been someone watching over me, because how oil ended up on the rotor but missed the front tire is beyond me.

Trying to the find the bright side is that I learned how to change the brake pads and clean the calipers thanks to this.

Just double checked. MidOhio Sportscar Course won't allow this type of filter on the track. Best to check that before going to a track day.

My failure was just this past spring in 2018. But I didn't leak out of the nut, but I blew out the seal. And yes, I installed it correctly. Mine just slow leaked and didn't blow everywhere. I saw it on my fairing while cleaning it.

The issue with the Triumph ones here is the markup is near extortion. And the others have a nut so they're easier to lock wire and remove. The last lot I bought were HiFlo for about 5ea from Carpimoto, along with other parts I needed.

The mark up is ridiculous isn't it here in Aussie. I used to use the K&N KN-204's, but now just get the Race Performance RP-204 from Supercheap Auto. Seem similar to the K&N with the weld nut etc and can be had for around $19. haven't had any issues after 3 oil changes and 25k.

Ride carefully - You are invisible.

I'd rather be next to a rider that can maintain a controlled wheelie than a muppet on their phone.

Think I'll be going genuine, whether it be Triumph or Kawasaki.
Don't think I'd trust the supercheap one anymore than the K&N I have on the shelf.

Do you have amsoil in aus? I use their filters and have never had a problem.



When I bought my DRZ the previous owner gave me a box of like 10 K&N filters, when I got home I dumped them in the garbage and ordered some wix filters for it.

I'd just get the better quality OEM filters for less money.

Honda/Acura crush washers fit and can be bought in bulk for cheap on eBay.

To buy one from Peter Steven's with shipping is $26.90.

Cheaper and easier for me to just go over the road to SCA and buy a RP204 for $19.49.

However if I do end up buying 3 of them with shipping from Peter Steven's I save $3.52.

The OP is a racer (or at least a track rider) based on his profile pic, we change our oil much more frequently than street riders. I buy six filters at a time.
