On your 93 you would probably benefit from changing the air filter.

The honest truth, it can't hurt as it is probably not much more then a stock filter if not cheaper. This is what most people get them for other then performance reasons.

im thinkin of getting one cuz mine are only 50 something bucks. im buyin velocity stacks and a CF intake. so that should make a difference on mine since i have a full exhaust too. i think workin the carbs will be the best bet on getting reasonable gains from older bikes, right? this would be nice to know since my R6 is carbed

if it's carburated then a more free flowing air filter will help but only if you increase the jet size to compensate for the extra air. more air and fuel into the motor = more power

I have two and it is much easier. I think after 50,000 miles they have paid for themselves. This way you always have a clean one you can swap out and you don't have to wait for it to dry before you can put your bike back together.
