    I don't know which Spyder you have ….. but K&N makes them for all the Spyders … I have had three for different spyders ..liked them all ……. because of their longevity …. not for performance ( unless you get your ECU re-programmed ie. Monster Fuel ) the Spyder computers will cancel any free breathing you achieve with a High Flow filter...… a Fact not my opinion …… Mike

    Not gonna get you any more performance -Only more things to clean because people tend to Over oil them (Like Over torguing Bolts) and the result is negative performance gain and even performance lose?

    Well to be truthful it wasn't meant to be " a shout out "..... It is the re-mapping of the ECU that makes the performance work …. Jass in Australia does similar ( expensive to ship tho ) …. and new Commander sounds promising but I don't know much about their product ……. just sayin …. Mike

    Yes, multiple tests have been done.......over maybe 20 years or so......and the conclusion is always the same.
    Like most racing products, they don't perform well on the street.
    But K&N has to sell them to stay in business.

    Informed decisions are always good.
    Alas, it happens too infrequently.

    Great article exposing K&N filters for the danger to service life that they are.

    Oil bath filters were efficient back in the fifties,pretty sure K@N would go broke promoting that style now.Far better to rely on the ''free lunch'' marketing angle to survive these days.
