it's sitting down in your favorite chair, lying down in bed
after a long day's work, or finally getting your project car
running oh-so-smoothly, that feeling of just right brings
peace and satisfaction. It can be hard, sometimes, to find
an air filter for your vehicle that's just right when your
air filter needs are outside the norm. It can seem like an
insurmountable task if you have space limitations under the
hood, performance goals you don't want to inhibit, aesthetics
you don't want to compromise or stringent standards of engine
protection. Thankfully, your just right woes are over. K&N
has a ton of performance air filter sizes that will deliver
superior airflow, and superior performance.
air filters were born in the dirt. In 1969, Ken Johnson and
Norm McDonald were tired of disposable air filters for their
off-road motorcycles constantly getting plugged up. Thus,
they embarked on a journey to develop a washable, reusable
air filter that would help their motorcycles perform better.
Over the last 45+ years, Ken and Norm's design has been refined
and proven to be a simple performance add-on that helps to
minimize restriction, increase performance, and provide excellent
air filtration efficiency.
core of a K&N air filter is its premium oiled cotton gauze
air filter media. 4-6 layers of cotton are layered, slightly
offset from one another, pleated between wire mesh for rigidity,
and impregnated with K&N's air filter oil. Cotton breathes
better than paper and the oil acts as a tacking agent, turning
cotton strands into microscopic dirt-catching fingers. Other
air filter manufacturers may use cotton, some use oil, and
most use a pleated design. But K&N brought these design
elements together in a way that has made it a leader in aftermarket
performance air filters.
