Performance air filter for B4 750?

Would there be any power gain with a 'performance air filter', 2005 model? If so, any recommendations for the best to go for?

Not convinced about any individual power gain, but if you are fitting exhausts, decat, remap etc may as well fit one - ive got a BMC in my 1090, also removed the intake snorkels....induction roar makes it sound faster if nothing else

cheers

A decat pipe is ready to be ftted, also silencers (!!). I would like to get an Arrow twin can system but they have stopped making it, if anyone knows where I can find a set I would appreciate it. Is the BMC oiled foam? If so, I'd prefer a dry fabric type.

Thanks, I'll avoid that one then.

Have you got something against oiled foam filters because they are the most efficient filter.
I have a MWR filter,easy to clean and service.
Most aftermarket filters are the oiled foam type.

Wait a sec doesnt removing the snorkels mess up the power band? On my RC51 you could install shorter or longer ones and it will move the power band around a bit.

Oiled foam seems to be a bike thing but personally I prefer dry fabric or paper filters.

Intake stacks, trumpets, bellmouths, to use a few terms, do indeed affect power delivery. MV must have spent time developing their intake system and IMHO, unless the engine is drastically modified, those intake stacks should be retained. Although it is possible that they may have been developed around noise emissions, so modified stacks could improve performance. It would need experimentation.

It is not only bikes that use the oiled filter.
Quite a few of my customers at work ask me to fit them to their 4WD's because they are so efficient on trapping finer dust particles.
Each to their own as the saying goes.

If a vehicle is being driven in extremely dusty conditions then an oiled filter may be an advantage, but for normal road use I prefer dry fabric or paper filters. Probably 90% of vehicles on the road use such filters without a problem. I also dabble in modified turbo cars and have never had an issue with paper or fabric dry filters, even oil sample analysis hasn't shown any abnormal dust particle contamination.
