Air Box Designed for Karts
"RK-1000 is made to withstand the rigors and harsh environments of track
competition," said K&N Air Filter Product Manager, Joost Adriaans. "There is
also a M6 nut molded in the top of the K&N Airbox for mounting purposes. This
saves time in competition."
The K&N Airbox comes with two intake restrictors with a 23 mm inside diameter.
These restrictors are also sold separately. Restrictors are packaged as a pair
and are also available in the 29 mm inside diameter size. Part
85-2000 has a 29 mm inside diameter and
85-2001 has a 23 mm inside
diameter. "Intake restrictors are there for two purposes, to create smooth air
flow into the K&N Airbox and to decrease sound to meet noise restriction
requirements at many tracks," said Adriaans. "The class you are
racing in determines the set of intake restrictors needed."
Two sizes of K&N Universal Air Filters (RU-5005) and (RU-5006) are also
available. "Our K&N Filters lock into the K&N Airbox for high air flow
and to reduce any turbulence," said Adriaans. "The whole assembly is designed to
clamp on to the carburetor."
K&N has also signed on as a contingency sponsor of the Snap-on Stars of Karting
presented by the IRL. This
program provides a chance for racers to go from Karts
to race cars by developing driver skills at the grassroots level.
"It took a lot of hard work to get this product sanctioned by the CIK-FIA," said
Adriaans. "K&N wanted this because we wanted racers in the Stars of Karting and
all over the world to be able to use this product in official competitions."
