Yes, as is the case with every K&N air filter, an increase in performance is a major design goal. However, K&N engineers know that there is an added requirement for filters that will be used in off-road applications. The YA-7016 meets these demands with multiple layers of woven cotton gauze media which provide excellent filtration. K&N leaves nothing to chance in product testing and the filter for the Kodiak and Grizzly has reached an overall filtration efficiency of over 98.5% in verified and rigorous testing. Look at the air filter test data sheet on the product information page to evaluate the detailed testing protocol and results. You can rest assured that the YA-7016 filter will keep your Yamaha ATV engine clean and protected in dusty and dirty conditions.
One of the biggest benefits of the K&N filter for off road enthusiasts is the fact that the YA-7016 is fully washable and reusable. Whereas paper element filters can be ready for the trash bin after just one extreme ride, the K&N simply needs a washing and re-oiling to be ready for the next adventure. Not only does this reusability save huge money for off-roaders, it helps protect the beautiful outdoors to which ATVs give us access. The washing process is made easy and convenient with the 99-5000 filter care service kit.
The K&N YA-7016 fits the following ATVs:
