K&N designed a high flow replacement air filter, part number YA-6008 for the 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 Yamaha YZF-R6 584 motorcycles.

Our performance air filter is designed to provide high airflow, increased horsepower and acceleration while providing engine protection. All K&N high flow air filters are washable and reusable.

The YA-6008 is shaped with a urethane molded frame for a proper seal and extra long life. This pre-oiled air filter will fit directly inside your OE air box assembly. Simply remove the stock air filter and install the K&N air filter into the stock air box.

There are three clips on the air filter that will slide into place into the air filter cavity in the air box. Our K&N air filter will only fit into the air box one way. Do not remove the air filter o-ring in the air box. Once you apply pressure, the K&N motorcycle air filter will snap into place. Use the stock screws to secure the K&N air filter to the air box. The center screw on the air box lid holds the air box lid and air filter into place.

No cutting or fitting is required and fuel management modifications are not necessary to obtain increased performance.

K&N’s YA-6008 is covered by K&N’s famous Million Mile Limited Warranty and will be the last air filter your Yamaha will ever need.

For 2008 to 2012 Yamaha YZF-R6 motorcycles used only in pavement racing environments, K&N offers its two-ply cotton media replacement air filter, part number YA-6008R for less restriction and increased horsepower and acceleration.
