air filter

Anybody have experience with air filters made by EMGO ? Found it on Ebay for $25. Should I buy or is it garbage ?

YOU get what you pay for.. I have always used OEM.. The Japanese designed the airbox, and filter to provide more than enough air thru OEM filters...
I do use a BMC street filter on the Track bikes(RC51, and track S-Hawk)
The BMC race filters cause more issues than resolve..


Buy an OEM filter.. stay away from K&N, Emgo, AirHog,etc.....

The EMGO air filter 12-91480 (but not their oil filters) are made to the same spec and quality as OEM. In fact I believe they are made by the same vendor as the Honda filter in Taiwan ROC (not mainland China). They also make BMW's OEM air filters for their super scooter.
