Counterfiet air filter(?)

So I have always had a k&n, but always wanted an oem air filter. Sooo.....saw this one on ebay. It says on the ad manufacturer honda.

BUT I just got it and its in a box that says european filter. I think it is just supposed to be oem spec, which should be fine. It has a paper element and the 2 triangle openings blocked off.

Anyone have an opinion or seen these before?

Gonna put it in and report on findings. My pair is gone and bike pops on decel but I kinda like the sound. (although it cant be doing my carbon cans any favors)

OOPPS. I am an idiot......here is the link. http://www.ebay.com/itm/150763449761...#ht_1709wt_916

Probably a pattern filter at that price. If you want a genuine OEM Honda part best order from your local Honda dealer.

Our replacement air filters are high quality Japanese made replacements designed to be a direct replacement for your factory equipment. It is advisable to visually check your existing air filter against the product image in this listing before comitting to buy. The product you see in the image is the exact product you will receive.

Im running it, looks exactly like the Emgo filter I bought. Bit less quality than oem, but not bad at all as far as fitment.

Saige thats interesting, didnt see that one when I looked.

SO I put it in instead of my k&n. Seat of the pants dyno says it is an improvement. Seem to throttle more crisply. Less popping on decel but I dont hugely care about that. I like the feel alot and it looks to be similar to an oem so guessing similar flow.

So if anyone wants a good inexpensive filter, I like this one. Cant speak to its longevity yet.
