K&N here. Believe me for a couple of bucks more for the K&N's no need for srewdrivers and or strap wrench to remove or install the damn thing. I used OEM at first and bit the bullet for the couple of extra bucks and now looking back should of just did it from the beginning and saved my self the headache for using anything else.

You guys have a p/n for the K&N and where are you buying them from? Local or on line. How much are they costing?

Thanks

I use the OE filters. I think i pay like $7 a filter for them on line. When ever I order anything online I pick up a few more as it does not really change the shipping cost.

Just a straight 17mm boxend wrench is all you need to take off the old K&N and put on the new one. strap wrenches get oily and slip and get you saying words that would make a truck driver blush and using one of the cap wrenches is useless cause you can't get a ratchet or breaker bar up in there and boy do I like my motorcycle hoist it is just the best of both worlds.

Thanks, I'm an auto tech by trade so getting the filters on and off won't be an issue. Most of the time I just use my hands.:bigthumbsup:

I went with the K&N simply for the fact that there's the handy little nut on it for easy on/off. I had one hell of a time getting the OEM filter off. Couldn't get my filter wrenches in there, so I ended making a mess and stabbing the :edit: with a screwdriver.
