if you drive in sandstorms, why u would I do not know, what if it didnt work?
Anyway "written article" is a result of testing multiple filters, not sure how else
results could be published.
"Placebo effect" not sure what that means in relation to this?
Point being K&N performed well for this motorhome, on that day, so thats
Never seen K&N publish any info on how there product is superior to a quality
Having seen far to many filthy K&N and other branded oiled filters in engines
because owners figure they are bullet proof long lasting wonder filters,
I personally am not a fan.
BTW "written article" is a non-biased test based on facts.
Hey guy use what you like.
Placebo is a reference from another debate, on another product, in a Galaxy far away.
Do you have any clue to all of the dirt running machines that use oiled air filters?
What you have seen is some ass wipe that is too lazy or stupid to take care of a filter and assume all do that, and that is how we all take care of them? I mean I been using the 2.5" diameter by 14" Cone on my intake on my Turbo for 7 years and my car does just fine at 21 Lbs. of boost.
I also have read and re read the Oil study that Amsoil publishes and believe it is a pretty unbiased study. I still run plain old Dino Castrol GTX.
You can believe everything you read, or believe everything you have tried over extended periods of time and know works.
Guess you never flipped a round ring, paper air cleaner cover over inverted on a motor, and had fun as a kid. Never killed anything I drove then, but a 350 sounded good as hell that way. Then I found oiled filters on my dirt bikes, and then K&N specific OEM specific, and have used them over 20 years now that I think about it. My 89 Tacoma had one in it and at 79,000 miles it was still fine when I sold it.
Your bike your money spend it how you like.
But don't just throw a article out in front of yourself and say it is so.
If you used one and blew a motor because of it let us know. If you know of a incident of where it has happened please post a link.
Now OP replace the fuel filter every 24,000 and make sure you replace all clamps the first time you do it.
