    on a related topic, how do people here who have installed k&n's free flow air filters on their bikes[ esp pulsars] keep them away from water during the monsoons and when washing their bikes..?

    ^^ generally done by installing a aluminium, or equally light fabricated metal plate that covers the filter from the outside, but does not restrict air flow. Also acts as a good deterrent for potential thieves.

    check the pictures:

    foam wrap
    I had a check on this sometime back in bangalore & the ans I got from one of the agents is that this does not come separately & it always comes along with the filter.

    Why don't you put normal foam instead of this which will also do the purpose for you.

    PS - I had used the foam as well for couple of thousand Kms & I do not know what happened mileage went down Instantly so now back to K&N Stock.

    a friend of mine had tried to use foam on k&n but the filter got choked..so he had to remove it...i don't think foam will work

    i checked with a few dealers in delhi and one sniper auto in pune...they said that these wraps are not imported in India...sniper auto also said that these wraps are not needed under normal conditions but only for rally etc in extremely dusty conditions....so i guess i will have to do without these wraps

    they can be sourced to india by a k&n dealer(atleast here in hyd),but as someone else said,i was also informed that it was not necessary for daily use,and should be needed in the case of off-roading with very fine dust... and i guess it's not that cheap either..

    In an automated scooter the sound increase will be less. but u are getting no sound difference? A K & N filter should be fitted directly on the carburettor by removing old air filter for any gain in sound and performance. yours might be fitted inside the airbox. this can be the only reason.
