I have 2 questions.

1 - What is the best airfilter for an 04 R6? I only have a Yoshi pipe as of now but more mods comming. I hear mixed emotions about K&N either good or very bad (mainly for my old 02 R6). So what are your recomendations?

2 - Are velocity stacks worth the money?

You know what i was just talking to a friend about this....

IT ALL DEPENDS ON WHERE YOU LIVE.....

K&N Filter will give you a plentiful amount of air flow to your bike....

giving you alittle bost in performance... NOW if your riding at a altitude at or around sea level.... that 60 dollar filter might not be worth it....

but if your riding in altitudes way up there..... its really worth it....

me personally... i have a 04 R6 aswell..... if you tell me because of altitude my filter is only going to give me like 2hp.... well thats just 2 more....


i live in the Kansas right now.... i got a K&N

When I was looking for my old 02 R6 K&N was said to hurt performance. I live in Western NY. But is K&N worth the buck? What about BMC?
