RE: Bikemaster washable air filter
No, sorry. My DLX came with a washable K&N which I tossed in the trash and replaced with OEM.

RE: Bikemaster washable air filter
I had a K&N on my 2002 Sportster 1200 Sport and on my 2003 Jeep Wrangler.

They are OK when properly maintained. If not properly oiled, they do not filter well. I too, prefer replacement with OEM or OEM =.

Have considered a HFA 1932, available for $20 to $25+ instead of OEM.

Bikemaster washable air filter
I’ve had a k&n filter in my Vulcan 1500 for over 12 years now. Never had a problem, never bought a new filter either. Just took care of it well. I did however decide to get an OEM replacement for my CB.

It is stunning that the OEM air filters are $52+. That's BMW territory.

Right? I found an aftermarket one on eBay for 17 bucks, shipped. It may not be the best but it fits my budget right now!!

RE: Bikemaster washable air filter
I replace my air filters every 25,000 miles to take the sting out of the oem price lol. They dont get that dirty where I live and really could go a little longer.
