    Hello,
    What do you think about this air filter?

    https://www.louis.de/en/artikel/delo-air-filter-fuer-honda-crosstourer-vfr-1200-x/100502?filter_bike_id=2801&list=48275408

    The price is very attractive :152:

    honda's dealer say me, that original filter cost is 82 euro.

    It certainly is cheaper. Perhaps try it and check it more regularly, to make sure its still doing a good job, if its that much for the honda item you can afford to change it three times as often

    I use a K&N air filter, you don't have to change it anymore, just clean now and then

    K&N filters allow more air than the standard air filter, I think this is not good.....
    Question, or electronics picks up with a greater amount of air? A lean fuel mixture is not good.

    Not a fan of K& N, would rather stick with standard, despite the cost!

    and the reason is ????

    Our Belgian Collegue here with more than 100.000 km (don't know how much he has for the moment, will be a lot more already ?) uses one also. Can't be that bad i think?

    Honda spends plenty on development, engine filtration, both oil & air is important, for obvious reasons, so why risk the compromise?
