K&N high-flow air filter number YA-8514 is engineered to increase airflow while also fitting inside the stock air filter box of 2014-2016 Yamaha inline triple MT-09 & FZ-09 models
The Yamaha MT-09, or FZ-09 as it is called in the United States, is a significant new model in the Yamaha Motor Company’s vehicle line up. Yamaha product manager Shun Miyazawa said motorcycle buyers are moving away from supersport motorcycles and trending toward naked street fighter type bikes. Perhaps the most direct competition to the 2014 Yamaha MT-09 & FZ-09 model is the Triumph Street Triple. Similar to the Triumph Street Triple, the 2014, 2015 and 2016 Yamaha MT-09/FZ-09 is powered by a liquid cooled 847cc inline triple cylinder engine. An inline triple engine has a unique combination of power, torque, and low-weight in comparison to other engine configurations. Yamaha has not produced an inline triple since the Yamaha XS750 and Yamaha XS850 motorcycles of the late 1970’s and early 1980’s.
The 2014 MT-09, or FZ-09 in the U.S., uses the first Yamaha inline triple since Yamaha XS750 and Yamaha XS850 models were manufactured from 1976 to 1981
Here to help boost horsepower and torque of the 2014-2016 Yamaha inline triple MT-09 & FZ-09 models is a world famous reusable air filter from K&N. A K&N washable air filter is different from stock in that K&N uses cotton gauze filter media woven to exacting specifications. Cotton, by nature, is more breathable than the paper or foam media used for most motorcycle air filters. Since an internal combustion engine is essentially an air pump, getting air into your engine with less restriction can increase performance, acceleration, and throttle response.
Flow Chart for K&N Air Filter YA-8514
Some might be worried that an increase in airflow comes at the expense of filtration efficiency and engine protection. To put minds at ease K&N performs filtration efficiency testing following the ISO 5011 protocol to guarantee that our air filters will provide high airflow without sacrificing engine protection. YA-8514 was shown to have a 98.52% overall filtration efficiency when tested with ISO coarse test dust. Calling this test dust coarse is almost preposterous, as 22% of the dust is rated at 10 microns or less. To provide perspective, a human blood cell is typically between 6 and 8 microns across.
Perhaps more exciting than the increased performance that comes with a K&N high-flow air filter is that they are also a washable and reusable air filter. The ability to wash and reuse a K&N air filter means that it will pay for itself over time. K&N high performance air filter YA-8514 can be washed and made like new using one of the K&N Recharger air filter service kits. Recharger 99-5000 includes 12 fluid ounces of air filter cleaner and a 6.5 ounce aerosol bottle of air filter oil for quick and easy application. Recharger, 99-5050, differs in that it includes an 8 ounce squeeze bottle of K&N filter oil for a more precise application.
