Question Best Air Filter??

I know that people will tell me to just run a search on the topic and I did it but came up with a lot of things that were off topic.

Anyways on to the question, I have heard a lot of mixed opinions about the K&N, honestly I have it on my truck and I like it. But I know that the 10R is a totally different beast so I am going straight to the people the know (hopefully) :O) what they are talking about.

So what is the best air filter for the '05 10R?
Any gains and or differences??
Any other mods (PCIII, stacks...) needed??


Thanks in advance!!

if your not going to have a PC3 with a map on it, go stock. my bike before had the K&N and gutted cat, Ivan said i was a little lean. With a PC3 and his tune i was golden and boy that tune made a big diff up top, i could tell immediatly. So, if you plan to keep it stock, stay stock, if your gonna do a PC3 and maybe a slipon, go K&N, i did the K&N just simiply so i only paid $40 one time and was done with buying airfilters.

I feel BMC (street or race) let's to much trash thru. But K&N been around forever and very reliable. So my two cents: I'll go with the K&N.

PC Frame, Swing Arm, Wheels. Gold Rear Sets, Chrome Heel Guards, Factory Pro. Vel. Stacks, PCIII, K&N Air Filter, Full Akra. Exhaust System, 525 DID Gold MVXZ Chain, HID KIT HI & LOW BEAM (6K), 1/5 Throttle Conversion, Ivan's Block Off Kit,TRE & Servo Elim. Air Box Mod, Stainless Steel Braided Lines, Blue Custom Gauge Panel, InterNatrix Paging Security Sys., Michelin Pilot Powers Tires, Barnett Clutch Springs, Custom In/Ex Cams by Web Cams, Milled Cylinder Head. 173.7RWHP

Steve told me the same thing, when discussing it with him i decided the zx's airbox was designed different so i got the k&n to save $25

I got tiered of buying go fast parts.... So i got a turbo! now i need go slow parts!
If it aint modded it aint yours!
