Erion Racing used K&N Engineering’s Performance Replacement Air Filter (HA-6003) on its CBR600RR at Daytona. “The K&N filter performed superbly,” said Kevin. “We did not change it at all during the difficult 200 mile Daytona race.”
Motorcycle road racing is a demanding motorsport. “The AMA Superbike Series puts the riders to the test. Competitors are in peak physical condition and must cope with extreme demands of repetitive G-loads endured during maximum breaking, wrestle lightweight, maximum-horsepower machines through high-speed corners at the limit of traction and multi-process thousands of information bits received through their hands, feet, knees, ears and eyes in mere fractions of a second,” states a news release from Team Erion.
“We now know we can beat Yamaha, a full-factory team with a lot more money,” said Kevin. “They are coming into every race with a huge economic scale and its own in-house racing program. For instance, if we spend one million, they will spend six or seven million and we have to compete against that.”
The K&N motorcycle filter allows us to push the envelope and get more horsepower, Kevin said. “We have seen performance gains on our dynamometer, up to a 2 hp gain with the K&N filter,” he said. “Anytime we can gain horsepower with the K&N filter it’s cost effective.”
In 2006, Team Erion is going after its first AMA Superstock title. “We’re excited to be part of the K&N family,” said Kevin. “The K&N products fits the model of Erion Racing, both are well constructed.”
