    Thumbs down K & n is not meant for r15, yet

    Bro, k & n is just a waste of money in r15, because after installing it u have to upjet (more fuel supply) and it's not possible because r15 is a fuel injected bike

    Just for sound you will ruin your piston, now it's upto you and regarding r1100 and 1060, they both are same.

    R1100 has a silver cap and it comes pre-oiled from company itself and r1060 has a black plastic cap and oil comes separated in box.You have to apply oil on it yourself

    For more info, check out K & N's official website and u will come to know that R15 there does'nt exist

    you need a FID to up your C0 for proper adjustment to the K&N.

    FID is the device used to tweak settings on an ECU for FI enabled bikes. CO% is the Carbon Monoxide percentage in your exhaust. The device uses the CO% info to set the Air to fuel ratio. your Fazer needs a bigger jet to run properly. And go to a different mechanic for the same. I suggest go to a spare parts shop, get a larger jet and go to a mechanic and ask him to replace the jet with this new one.
