K&N Flame Arrestors for Personal Watercraft

Experience increased horsepower and engine protection with K&N Personal Watercraft flame arrestors for both normal and race applications.  K&N "RACING ONLY" flame arrestors have an epoxied screen filter that does not have the cotton media.  Regular K&N flame arrestors come with K&N's oiled cotton media sandwiched between screen material.  

K&N flame arrestors replace the restrictive factory airbox.  In most cases an adapter is required to mount the flame arrestor onto the carburetor.  Some watercraft may require a slight adjustment to the carburetor's fuel circuits to allow for optimum performance.  Check with a qualified mechanic for the proper procedures.

Carburetors

Use your carburetor manufacturer and part number to find the correct K&N adapter.  Next, find a universal flame arrestor with a 2.75" flange size that will fit in the available space.   The adapter's flange size shown is the outside diameter.   See your personal watercraft owner's manual to determine the carburetor manufacturer and part number.
