1997 air filter

I am currently in need of a new air filter.....


I went online at ron ayers to look at the fiche, and they have three air filters listed with three different part numbers.

which if for the 97 and is ther a better air box than the one on my bike? is any one of the three better than the other?

also i would love to hear any ideas on spark plugs and whethor or not there is a better choice than the honda specified plug?

I always use the ones that the manufacturer recommends. I am not sure what the difference is between the 3 models offered at ronayers.

I recommend you call your local honda dealer, get some prices and part no. from them.

I just came back from a local dealer, bought 2 spark plugs for SH, two for my ninja 250, an oil filter for SH with a crush washer, the total came about $38 including tax. it would have come up to about $33 from ronayers. Advantage: No waiting, proper parts, can return if it is a wrong part, etc.

my 2 cents.

Re: 1997 air filter

interesting idiea about the uni filter thing...
but foam airfilters are the worst air filters you can get....

the foam passes less air as the foam is compresses from the air sucking on it.....

i just am trying to figure out why honda has 2 or three different airboxes on differnt years of vtr...

and is one better than another...? 8)
