All I can say is most people won't believe this but then it's their loss...in miles per gallon that is. I Own 2 Harleys, a 1979 HD Sportster that several years ago I put a K&N air filter on and felt like it doubled it's performance, and a 1999 FLSTF Fat Boy. I didn't rest there, as a year ago I put a K&N on my 2001 Dodge Ram Quad cab Cummins turbo diesel and also felt the increase in performance not to mention the scream of that turbo that I had never really heard from the factory.
Recently two of my buddies and I went on a motorcycle trip to Stecoah, N.C. Before going on the trip I changed all my fluids and serviced the whole bike. I decided to buy a K&N air filter and pitch the stock one. They were riding a 2003 Honda Goldwing, a 2005 Harley Davidson Roadking and I took my 99 Fat Boy. Prior to installing the K&N my Fat Boy got between 40 & 43 MPG. As we went from fuel stop to fuel stop my mileage was as follows: 43 MPG, 47 MPG, 46 MPG, 48 MPG and 52 MPG EVERY tank after that. My buddies only mustered 44 -46 MPG. Most people would ask what about the weight and the speed. Well both my saddle bags were packed, I had a bag with 20 lbs. on my luggage rack, plus my TBags weighed in at about 50 lbs. The weight we carried was all about the same. The motorcycle weights were different, but not enough to warrant the major difference in MPG. Also mine is carbureted and theirs are fuel injected. As far as the speeds, we were cruising on the interstate at 70 to 80 MPH through a whole fuel run which was about 200 miles. Even when I was on the tail of the dragon, which is 318 turns in 11 miles, my mileage stayed at 52 MPG. All I can say is after over 1700 miles on that trip the K&N definitely paid for itself with the increase of 9-12 MPG.
So everyone has a choice. you can pay at the pumps or spend that money on the LAST air filter you will EVER buy.

All of my vehicles including my Harley Davidson have K&N Filters installed. They perform without equal.

I have used K&N products for several years as a ship's engineer. I am now retired and still own the 1988 Harley Davidson FLST I bought new in '87. I also am still using one of the first Screamin Eagle CV carbs. No one makes the correct air filter, so I went back home to K&N for a universal filter that I knew would not only deliver the air flow necessary but would look good as well.
