    Product Description:
    K&N Air Filters are made of four to six layers of cotton gauze sandwiched between two epoxy-coated aluminium wire screens.  The cotton is treated with a specially formulated grade of oil causing tackiness throughout the cotton’s microscopic strands. It is built with two layers of specially pleated media and designed to open up the air passage for less restriction. These filters use pleated, multi-layer surgical cotton mesh to deliver the best air cleaning qualities and the highest air flow rate. They fit directly into the OEM air box assembly with an OEM-style sealing bead. Once pressure is applied the air filter will snap into place. No cutting or fitting is required but fuel management modifications will be necessary to obtain optimum performance.
     
    Product Benefits:
    The nature of the cotton in K&N air Filter allows high volumes of airflow, and when combined with the tackiness of the oil creates a powerful filtering media that ensures engine protection.  In contrast, most other media can not maintain the same balance of airflow and filtration throughout the filter's life without sacrificing one or the other. These air filters allow engines to breathe more efficiently, and are the first step to getting more horsepower from the bike. These air filters are dyno proven to increase horsepower, throttle response, and fuel economy. The specially designed two ply air filter is less restrictive and produces more air-flow CFM (cubic feet per minute) for race specific engines. 
     
    Race Filters (available for certain sportbikes):
    Race-Spec High-Flow Air Filters designed to provide a significant boost in arflow, resulting in increased horsepower & torque. Built with 2 Layers of special pleated media and designed with 25% less pleats in order to open up the intake tract to provide very low restriction. This filter fits directly into your OE Air Box Assembly, with an OE style sealing bead. No cutting or fitting is required.

      Stephen R. on 01/23/2010
      Pros: I use K&N in everything I own but have never had it make as much difference in power as it did this time with my Suzuki 1000 V-Strom, the power increase was a pleasant suprise.
      Cons: It was a pain in the butt to install but thats the bike engineering not K&N's fault.

      Pros: the best filter in the world. excellent performance on my cbr 600rr
      Poor mounting bracket quality, NOT direct bolt-on
      by Aaron F. on 06/21/12
      Pros: The filter element itself should work fine.
      Cons: I've had K&N before but I simply cannot recommend it for 05-06 CBR600RR for the shear fact that it does not fit with the stock mounting location.

      Unlike other bikes the K&N for the 06 CBR600RR's filter element is integrated to a mounting bracket to mimic the bracket on the OEM filter. That mounting bracket on this K&N is just made with poor quality plastic and shoddy design, that it will only work if you modify the screw locations for it to fit properly. For a filter is like $70+ dollars, this is not what I expected.

      Look for a different brand if you are getting it for this bike.
