Its about time to replace the air filters in both of our bikes. I want some real opinions not just marketing opinions.

IDK... the rc51 stock filters were good enough... there wasn't a real need to go after market with them. bmc is what the busa will get when it is time though.

Agree with BMC and Patrick w/ Motorcycles Unlimited....
He also remapped the PCM for some other mods but the overall package was superior to where it was before the hospital check up

They put one in for me when I was well over due with my neglected bike; but that's what technicians do to their own vehicles.

btw.... he ordered/installed a chain and sprockets since mine was stretched and popping around sprockets... not good...

BMC gained the most hp (when dyno tuned) over K&N and velocity stacks on our SV, and better hp on my GSXR with BMC over K&N.

Yes, hit up Patrick.

Definitely BMC.
I'd pass on the race version though, no real gain vs reduced filtration = not a good trade off.
Give me a shout with what you need the filters for and I'll get you a price.

+1 (not that the professor needs endorsement)
Especially as dusty as the Houston area is.

I've heard it varies by bike and purpose. Go see Patrick and you'll be fine.
