stock air filter
aftermarket air filter

i have a k7 600 and what ive done to it so far is. pc3 usb with the yoshi r-55 map installed in it for now (to hold me over till i get a dyno tune) an akrapovic cf shorty, +2 rear sproket, and the pair mod. and the reason im using the r-55 map, is because they dont have one for the akra slip-on, so i called power commander and they told me to use that one because the two slip-ons are almost the same. and the map works really well. so my question is would it help out my bike at all to put either a bmc or k&n on it, or keep using the stock one?

I've got a K&N but it doesn't make a huge difference. If you want one, buy it. Otherwise, wait till the stocker gets dirty and then change it.

It's a tradeoff. Yes you can get some increased power from a race filter, but only a small amount and you have to re-tune your PC for it after you install it to realize that gain. The downside to race filters is that they don't filter as well as stock filters, so you will get increased engine wear. Personally, I don't use race filters, even on the track. Few people can beneficially use the 1-2 hp they might pick up. And I don't even put myself in that class.

Agreed. At the time I hadn't done my research and went that route. I am too cheap to put the stocker back in and pay for a retune.

sorry for off topic but what is the "pair" mod?
you lift up your tank and you open your airbox and inside the airbox you plug the hole on the inside of it. and you do this if you have an aftermarket exhaust, it makes it so your bike dont backfire on deceleration.

so do you really get much out of the after market filter? i dont want a race one. Alot of people i talk too, say when you put a slip-on on, your letting more air out why wouldn't you put an aftermarket filter on to let more in.
