The YA-6008R is specially made for asphalt racing only. Its two-ply cotton media is made to be less restrictive, providing a better racing advantage for the Yamaha’s 600cc liquid-cooled inline 4-cylinder DOHC 16 valve engine.

This K&N replacement panel air filter is built with two layers of specially pleated media and designed to open up the air passage for less restriction. K&N racing air filters are designed to increase horsepower and acceleration.

K&N air filters are washable and reusable. This pre-oiled air filter will fit directly inside your OE air box assembly. There are three clips on the air filter that will slide into place as the air filter slides down into the air filter cavity in the air box. The K&N air filter will only fit into the air box one way. Please do not remove the air filter o-ring in the air box. Once you apply pressure, the K&N air filter will snap into place. Use the stock screws to secure the K&N motorcycle air filter to the air box. Make sure to install the center screw on the air box as this screw holds the air box lid and air filter in place. No cutting or fitting is required but fuel management modifications will be necessary to obtain optimum performance.

K&N’s YA-6008R is warranted against defective workmanship for one year after the date of purchase with no mileage limitation. This K&N air filter is not intended for dirt track, off road or highway use.

For 2008 to 2016 Yamaha YZF R6 motorcycles used in normal non-racing environments, K&N recommends its four layer replacement air filter, part number YA-6008 for excellent engine protection and air flow.
