I've used both K&N and BMC in times past. Honestly, a pain to clean and oil when I can just drop in an OEM filter without the hassle. I suppose you might get a bit more intake honk with an aftermarket filter, but I just don't care.

ive tested a bunch of them , the only 2 ive found to make gains are the DNA and Sprint

I sell and prefer the sprint because it is dry and easy to maintain.

no worrying If you put to much oil and it doesn't flow as well or not enough and it doesn't filter as well

DNA = $156AUD + Free Shipping
BMC = $142AUD + Shipping
Sprint = $133AUD + Shipping
K&N = $99.95AUD + Free Shipping

I already have the K&N cleaning/oil spray cans from the K&N I had on my Trumpy, so I will more than likely go for that because they're easy to clean / oil and I already have the stuff. :)

I have used sprint before but I like DNA better.
Ive used, DNA, BMC, K&N

Ill never go back to an oiled filter.

An oiled filters performance and filtration is totally dependent on the amount of oil you put on it. There is no way to know when you have put enough or if you put to much.

Glad your happy with your choice though as that is really what it is all about

Same here. I think most folks are like me and forget about the air filter sometimes. And the oiled ones require regular oiling or they start letting grit into the engine causing premature wear. Unless you keep it on a chart, refer to it often, and stop riding the bike when the reoiling is due, it would be wise to use the dry filters.
