KN 1699 Air Filter 3 Months, 2 Weeks ago  
Hey gang,

So if I put in the KN filter into the stock box do I need to change the jetting on the carb? I can get the stock filter for 26 and the kn for 69 but Im not ready to jet.

Thanks
Brendan

When you get ready to rejet there is a mod we call a poormans BAK that you can do to your stock air box when using the K/N filter. It will let the bike breath better and it is a free mod. You will need to get into the carb when you change to an aftermarket exhaust. Just come and ask any questions here and we can get you thru a rejet without a problem. Its not a hard job. Especially if you have just a little mechanical ability.
