High-performance filters for motorcycles

The name K&N is taken from the initials of company founders Ken Johnson and Norm McDonald. They both came from the dirt track scene, which was reason enough for them to be extremely interested in efficient filter systems. In this case, "efficient" means that the filter has the important job of protecting sensitive race engines against dust and dirt from the track while still letting enough air into the engine to ensure that it can deliver top performance. Oiled cotton gauze was found to be best for meeting these conflicting demands. But that's not all. The material is also easy to clean and reuse. This is as true today as it was when K&N was established back in 1969. K&N air filters have an excellent reputation around the world, and now that applies to K&N oil and fuel filters, too. It goes without saying that you can get them all at Louis.
