Both Uni and Twin Air have filters for the Z. The Twin Air filters will be ready in a few weeks. The Uni filter is avalible to buy at your local motorcyle/atv dealer. The part number and price is NU-2483ST $22.95.
The reason K&N's are more expensive is becuase they make the whole filter. Uni and Twinair just make the foam and use the stock metal thing (don't know what its called) K&N also uses paper which has a higher flow but lets more dirt in. Mickey Dunlap likes them for their high-flow but he says u should always have a outwears on it.
ive seen at a local shop about 10 years ago where uni's out flowed kandN's. Besides flow KandN's are heavy at the rear and need to be tightened way down which leads to a crushed air tube on hondas, unless u have the nice rings installed to prevent that. In my opinion kandN's are harder to clean. I owned one and threw it away after finding it in the bottom of my airbox! I NEVER had that happen with an UNI. Tom Carlson told me that the box is the most restrictive part on 300ex's and unless lid modifications were made changing the filter was usless. I used to race gncc in the early 90's and sold my r with 350x engine last fall and am thinking of the Z instead of a EX.
After I buy my skids and nerfbars, im going to save my money for an axle probably, and see if an airfilter, outwears, and exhuast system can be a birthday present...lol...all the money im making is going into my quad to pay for parts...to pay my dad for getting me my z I have to check and put air in his tires every month for the rest of my life...sounds like a good deal for the $4700 he had to spend...lol...
Can you use other filter brands with Alba's adapter. I ordered it and a K&N yesterday, but not sure which filter to use in the long run. I think the K&N should be fine as long as the outerwears are used. What do u guys think?
