  • K&N filters, are they really SO EXPENSIVE???

    I went to check the K&N filters for the Katana, and found this part numbers:

    SU-7592
    RU-2922

    Then I went to their always overpriced online store:

    SU-7592 = $79.75 - Individual filters, so I guess you need 4 of this.
    RU-2922 = $89.42 - Each filter fits two carbs, you would need 2.

    Then I went to Parts411 online store:

    SU-7592 = $67.07
    RU-2922 = $182.68

    Even buying them at the cheapest store, 4xSU-7592 = $268.28 or 2 x RU-2922 = $178.84


    Are they really THAT expensive??? Maybe I'm confused and the SU-7592 includes the 4 filters and RU-2922 includes two???
    I can't believe they can be that expensive!

      OH!!! Now I understand!!! I was having a really hard time trying to figure out how those things would attach to each carb from inside the airbox! (I feel incredibly dumb!)

      Heck, and I was even thinking that K&N had got the specs. for the flanges really messed up

        Yeah, the pods (either 4 filters, or sometimes 2) need a jet kit to allow the bike to run properly. There is a website, i think it is Filters4you.com or something like that, that has real cheap prices on them.

          either way they are so expencive becasue you will neverneed another air filter again for that bike as long as you own it, you just keep recharging it and your ready to go, also its a quality product

                  Did some searching, but I found it!


                  www.4filters.com

                  Then just go to select year for vehicle, and go from there.

                  These are some of the cheaper prices I have seen.
