It depends on what you expect to get out of it. If you want it for performance reasons, don't expect a world changing power increase by itself. Changing an air filter for performance reasons is usually one of the last things I usually get to, there are more effective modifications ahead of it. Not knowing what bike you have or what mods are already done, I'm just talking in general terms assuming your stock .

If you operate your machine on the street and need to keep it reigned in to the constraints of local laws, then there won't be much of a noticeable power increase.

If your running a track bike and need to increase performance in the upper RPM range (3-4 hp) then go for it.

If your bike is a hobby rocket, and it makes you happy to buy an air filter, then go for it.

They're a good reliable and reusable replacement for a average or old OEM filter.

A guy posted about fitting one of these a while back and everyone got on his case about getting retune which is difficult for the triple. Me I'd have one because they give you awesome intake noise which is good but I now have doubts because my lean-running engine will grenade. Apparently.

If you re looking for a race version MWR is the best option on the market in my opinion otherwise the DNA or BMC are pretty good options!

Don't pick on him Dons, he's one of us. He has an FZR.

We're all here, but we're not all there.
