Re: DNA Air Filters

The stock foam one is great and easy to change on the Husaberg. If scared it will getting clogged with dust and stuff during a ride carry a extra in your jacket or pack. They the lightest extra part you can carry(oiled up in zip lock they are great extra padding). Clean the foam on the seat and frame like you'd clean a air box and it has great flo.

Ok, im picking up this thread I started in 08.
Apparently they still make these K&N type DNA air filters.
On my FS650 I would consider trying one out if its true it increases air flow. They say 14% increase even with the top of the filter not having the flow.
I am not going off road with the bike so no dirt.
Anyone have this type of filter on their FS?
I believe the K&N oil has longer life in its filtration than the Twin air oil. Am I right? Or is it irrelevant?
But increased air flow is what Im more interested in Without doing the rear mod. I will just keep it how it is with stock filter its not worth it.

I have one in each of my 70d bikes all are great. On one bike I use in the dirt it was scary how dirty it was but when I took it off the inside look great. Thing is with K&N and DNA you have to use there oil. if you use foam filter oil doesn't work you'll ruin your motor. I use K&N oil on my DNA filters with no problems. Just do what the instructions tell to do for the oil. Didn't notice any power gain though. Also have a K&N on my 87 Husky been on the bike for 29 years

I have thought of the K&N type because I'm sick of the foam ones deteriorating in bikes that don't get used often. the K&N type seem to last forever. I don't think it's possible to get more air without more dirt.


https://bobistheoilguy.com/air-filtration-test/ Has some interesting findings according to their tests K&N type and foam had the same filtration.

I have the Volant K&N filter system on my Chevy SS truck. Works great and less maintenance..
I know the foam filter oil seems to feel a little dried up after several months.
I go 10k plus miles on a cleaning on my truck filter.

I have dna on my supermoto/iceracer and I had a k&n in my cbr1000rr. I find them easy to clean and as they are made of cotton you can clean them with fuel if your out of cleaner.
I like them but I keep using foam on my enduro because that is changed after every day as that type of driving is so dirty (unless it's in the winter/snow as then they stay clean longer).

Disposable/reusable foam pre oiled filters. Easy, Cheap and they work.... Buy a bunch, pre oil, keep in zip lock bag and throw away or keep clean and do again.

My 86 Husky 400 took it out after maybe 10 years of not riding it went to oil the foam filter it had turned into sand fell apart in my hand. Took 6 months to find a replacement didn't try very hard but at one point I even tried making one and failed. Point to this is K&N and DNA last indefinitely. Cleaning them You have to wait for them to dry before reusing it. Expensive but well worth it. Got them on most my bikes and both of my cars. If any one wants some foam filters from 70d bikes I have a some you pay shipping that all? Is there anyway to keep a foam filter so it will last longer?

Agree totally with bush it all depends on the condition you are running ...I have never seending a motocross race k&n filters only spunge ...but if you riding mainly on the road k&n could be a better choice for more flow ...I will be going soon dual exhaust lectron 44 and head ported ...the way I see myself to increse the air filter surface is to build an air box....I would personally stick with spunge is great overall need more maintenance but it keep the engine safe better then other
