    High flow air filter DNA

    Hi everyone!

    I decided to change the original air filter for a high flow one, I leave you my impressions and comments.  :467:

    The first thing is that in order to change it, it is necessary to remove the fenders, the plastics and the gas tank to access the air filter compartment (a lot of work for an air filter) and to be able to make the change.

    The change is very simple, remove, change a screw and that's it! New Filter!  :047:

    I did it with the distributor to avoid warranty issues, to document the process, to leave in the manual that the change was made, etc. It's 2 hours of workshop labor but it's better to pay that than have problems in the future.

    Negative comments:151:

    Access to the air filter compartment is laborious.

    The labor cost is equal to the cost of the high flow filter.

    Positive comments:467: :467:

    The sound is spectacular! I love how it sounds with this new filter.

    Filter for "life" with its respective maintenance.

    Money savings in each service that the motorcycle needs (air filter parts are no longer purchased).

    Higher yields according to the manufacturer (I am going to continue testing and I will tell you about the gasoline consumption or some improvement)

    The perception of having an even lighter bike (my thoughts LOL)

    I highly recommend this change. I leave the link of the filter and some images.

    Greetings to all!

    Warning: "High Flow" filters tend to flow more air by having larger "holes" which means they tend to pass more and larger particulate matter. This is usually the kind of stuff the factory filter is trying to keep out of your engine internals...

    So you get to spend more money up front, still have to remove the filter regularly to wash, re-oil, and reinstall, and potentially cause more wear on pistons and cylinders for a potential "performance boost" that can't be easily measured?

    No, thanks...

     :0461: no saving at all. Labour is expensive (to clean), replacement Triumph filters are cheap enough and have a long enough service interval. Just by buying one and payng the labour to have it fitted early has lost any financial gain you might have made.

    On a more positive note, if that increases the induction note and you like it then who cares!  :046:

     :0461: This is exactly why I quit using the one & only K&N air filter I've ever owned. They're not worth the extra hassle IMO. I put the K&N cold air kit on an older Dodge Dakota. It sounded great but added no extra performance & was a pain to clean & relube.

    Hi,

    I did it on my previous motorbike (Guzzi Calif EV). I agree with you Jon. It is a pain to clean the filter. At the end, it is more expensive than the original parts with no gain !
