Awesome product.  My Buell is a different bike!

Dear K&N,

Recently, I purchased a new Kawasaki ZX-10R. As usual for any vehicle, I also purchased the suitable K&N filter. However, instead of immediately installing it, I left it on the shelf and more-or-less forgot about it.

Now, the bike has approximately 2900 miles on it and it is suffering from lower than expected power output and piston blowby. I attribute this to the paper air filter that came in the bike.

I believe the problem is, as the paper filter initially blocks the entry of dirt into the engine, the combination of vacuum acting on the filter, vibration from the motorcycle's engine and the lack of a chemical adhesive (filter oil) allow dirt particles to eventually pass through the filter.

At this time, I sent the bike to the dealer for compression testing to verify the reduced performance.

When I get the bike back, the first thing I'm going to do is to install the K&N filter.

BTW, my other motorcycle, a Buell 1125R, is running perfect after 5K miles as I installed a K&N filter immediately after purchasing it.

I have not gotten my filter yet, but I wanted to acknowledge that K&N did a great job getting a product out for my motorcycle. I ride a '08 Buell 1125R. Lisa Watson and the whole K&N crew did an awesome job coordinating with some Buell 1125 owners to get this product developed and out on the street. I, as a customer who has purchased approximately 20 K&N filters, am glad that your company does not forget about the lower production number vehicles. I put K&N filters on all of my vehicles and although I have not gotten the one for my Bike yet, I know that it will perform up to, or beyond my expectations, just as every K&N filter I have ever purchased has performed. Thanks, again for making this filter for my Bike and for the awesome service to your customers.
