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.

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!

When I looked into this the sprint was getting rave reviews and it doesnt need oiling. Dont know it it sounds faster though....

Hey, not sure where you are looking where they are in the $200 range. But BellissiMoto-2.myshopify.com has them for a bit cheaper ($90-$120)

I have the MWR race setup on my bike also in conjunction with modified larger rams and additional work to the air box itself. The total intake setup change did make a marked improvement on the straights at the track and it was noticeable on the dunk at the very tip top but only when the forced air setup was used to recreate wind speed at the front of the bike.

For street riding...it would be a waste unless you are just needing a replacement filter and I wouldn't recommend a race filter unless you are just in love with taking the tank off an F3 to oil and clean the filter after every weekend. Mine spends the majority of its time at the track so that is the reason I took that route.
