what race filter for Rivale

What are you guys using? BMC and DNA seem to be the options, are there any other brands worth checking out? Also, is there a how-to on accessing the air box/swapping the filter?

Here is the dyno chart from the MWR website.

MWR dyno chart

The black line is with the new filter. It does smooth out the fueling a little and they claim 3 more HP, but if you look at the chart, the increase is in the last few RPM.

The MWR did not do a good enough job and my air box was pretty dirty. I had serviced it in March and yesterday I looked at it again and was shocked by the state of the filter and the air box after 8 track days (and they say to service it once a year!). I went back to the paper filter because the gain in HP is not worth risking engine damage.

Sprint make one and they seem to be getting the plaudits everywhere at the minute. Cheaper than the MWR, no oil, blows clean with compressed air, same design as OEM and according to the bumph flows a lot more air. So you'll probably need a tune.

Blimey just from an air filter? Mine is all standard with just a QD pipe and off top of my head it was something like 123 or 126 at the rear

Definitely need to invest in something like this if it helps

My point was that the dyno sheet wasn't impressive enough to risk engine damage from an air filter that doesn't seem to do a good job of filtering the dirt from the air.

The Sprint air filter that Jono posted about looks like a way better choice to me than the MWR.

I am taking my F3 to the track next weekend (Chuckwalla in SoCal). My suspicion is that I won't even notice the change, if so I will be selling the MWR.

Most race bikes don't have airfilters, just a screen mesh to keep bigger objects out.
