Air Filter Recommendation?

601 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Motorcycle Man
Time to replace a few things on my bike and the air filter is one. The Honda OEM filter is $76, or I can get a K&N for $69. Seems like a no-brainer, but the Honda filter might be a better product (though not reusable).

If the K&N lets more air through, does that mean that it filters less? Anybody know what these two filters are like? Does it really matter?

I've read a few things that suggest K&N filters don't perform quite as well as the stocker, but with the price of the Honda OEM, I'd go for something reuseable. My bike doesn't have any problems that I can blame on the air filter, and the K&N has been in there for 10yrs and ~160,000+ km.
