Yamaha's XJR1300 is an unapologetic, muscle wielding, street bully. This is a motorcycle light on subtleness and glitz and heavy on brute force. It's pure adrenaline tinged with awe - big on aggression and technology and small on frilliness. The stocky 43mm front forks, three-spoke alloy wheels and monobloc 4-piston front brake calipers with floating discs add even more muscularity. Asked to pigeon-hole its style, the term "extra-large" comes to mind.

At the core of XJR's character is its classic air-cooled engine design with four valves per cylinder. It didn't even get fuel injection until 2007, as many purists feared fuel injection might destroy its big powerful smoothness. Yamaha was in fact rather quiet over the updates to its XJR1300. No trumpet blast, no big announcement, just a calm re-introduction of one of Yamaha's old faithful. The superbly balanced double cradle tubular steel frame completes the powerful street machine image.

It turns out fuel injection has actually improved the XJR's engine. The 1251cc locomotive pulls harder than a Clydesdale on a beer wagon. It still has the same five-speed gearbox, but in top gear it now pulls smoothly from as low as 1000 rpm and 25 mph without an excess of clutch slip, which is frankly ridiculous.

Power junkies, or those merely looking for a touch of additional even-handed performance, need look no further than a K&N YA-1308 high-performance replacement air filter. In the time it takes to swap out the exiting factory air filter, you can be installing the premier reusable air filter, designed to increase horsepower and acceleration while providing outstanding air filtration. The K&N YA-1308 is a direct replacement for the OEM air filter, so no alterations of any kind will be required.

K&N is synonymous with power gains and their worldwide race results are a testament to that. With regularly scheduled cleaning the YA-1308 replacement air filter will last a million street dominating miles. Additionally, you don't even have to worry about cleaning the K&N filter for up to 50,000 miles depending on driving conditions.
