K&N Develops Race Specific Air Filter For The Completely New 2009-2012 Suzuki GSX-R1000 Sportbike
Suzuki’s GSX-R1000 first hit the streets in 2001 and took the world by surprise. Since that time, Suzuki’s flagship GSX-R model has received a number of enhancements. However, for the first time in eight years, the GSX-R1000 is truly all-new. No component was ignored when designing a new GSX-R1000. Most notably, Suzuki gave its liter bike an all new engine, suspension, and ergonomics.
Before the redesign, the GSX-R1000 was already a potent race-ready street machine. Now things are really going to heat up in the 1000cc class. To help the GSX-R1000 further excel on the track, K&N designed a new race specific air filter (SU-1009R) designed to increase performance in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 Suzuki GSX-R1000 models.
K&N purpose built, race specific air filter SU-1009R for 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 Suzuki GSX-R1000 motorcycles.
K&N’s line of race specific sportbike air filters are designed for asphalt racing only. Part number SU-1009R is very different from its stock replacement air filter counter part (SU-1009). SU-1009R incorporates two-ply cotton media in a special pleat pattern to be less restrictive, providing extra airflow. As a result K&N racing air filter SU-1009R increases horsepower and acceleration for the racetrack.
K&N air filters are washable and reusable. This air filter does not come pre-oiled and must be oiled prior to installation. Use the included oil pillow pack and follow the oiling instructions. SU-1009R will fit directly inside your OE air box assembly. No cutting or fitting modifications are required to install SU-1009R but fuel management modifications will be necessary to obtain optimum performance.
K&N’s SU-1009R is warranted against defective workmanship for one year after the date of purchase with no mileage limitation. This K&N air filter is designed for asphalt racing only. It is not intended for dirt track, off-road or highway use.
For 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 Suzuki GSX-R1000 motorcycles used in normal non-racing environments, K&N recommends its four layer OE replacement air filter, part number SU-1009 for excellent engine protection and air flow.
