In the early 1960s, two motorcycle racers, Ken Johnson and Norm McDonald (K&N) developed a ground-breaking new idea for an air filter. After experimenting with numerous types of filter media, they discovered that an oiled cotton design allowed the filter to not only capture contaminants very efficiently, but also allowed it to be washed and reused, and the original K&N High-Flow Air Filter was born. Five decades later, K&N is still innovating industry-leading filtration technology. In addition to performance air filters, K&N® now manufactures a variety of other protection and performance products, including air intake systems, oil filters & fuel filters, with a reputation for exceptional quality and customer service.
K&N XStream Series Motocross Air Filters take performance to the next level with the addition of a filter within the filter's top in order to add even more filtration area for high air-flow and capacity. Each filter piece has pleated media which creates a large surface area that provides high airflow and great dirt holding capacity for extreme conditions. The two-piece design eases installation and removal on modern narrow-framed MX bikes. The epoxy-coated aluminium wire mesh, incorporated into a backfire screen, protects the filter element from harmful debris. A custom base seal ensures a precise and secure fit. K&N air filters are washable and re-usable and they come pre-oiled and ready to use!
