Air Filter Questions

I changed my filter a few thousand miles ago from the stock filter to the K&N filter... the bike has since run like and bogs down a lot... doesn't sound right... I am thinking of going back to the stock filter, so i got a few questions:

1. How does one remove the freakin rivets from the stock filter casing?
2. Where does one buy the oil for the stock filter?
3. After doing this, do I need to take the bike to be remapped or anything?

FYI. If anyone wants the K&N filter, hit me up and give me a price....

I have a '02 R6 and was told the OEM filter works way better than the K&N... going to see if this works...

You don't apply oil to the stock filter.

The stock '02 R6 filter comes pre-oiled from the factory.
K&N's don't work well on the carbed R6's, especially if the carbs are not rejetted.

IMO, put a new stock air filter back in it.

We keep them in stock if you need one.

I was thinking of just drilling the rivets out and washing the old filter in some detergent and then oiling it....

Don't you have to remove the rivets to get the new filter in or are you selling the entire assembly???

Why do you recommend getting a new stock one, the manual says that you can wash them, am i missing something? Your store is kinda far from me, but PM me the price and I will see if I can swing up to your side on Saturday morning....

Stock filters on later model sportbikes are almost always better then K&N or BMC filters ASIDE from the fact you can not clean and reuse them. I have done a lot of dyno testing on hayabusas with various filters and there was no detectable difference in HP going from the stock filter to a K&N or BMC street filter. Don't buy into all the hype....

Fukk you need to shop around bro.... try ebay... I can get stock busa filters for $20 all day long, brand new in the wrapper.

OR buy them used off of people who get suckered into buying K&Ns.
