    Going to get a new filter on my bike.

    What do you guys think of these filter for my Sportster. Which one do you or did you use? Opinions?

    K&N hi-po replacement filter. Fits right in the old case, washable 50,000 miles before cleaning. Can be clean numerous times. Suppose to be better flow than factory filter.

    Big sucker stage one filter?

    Thanks, Ken

    Right, I have the stock box right now with OEM filter. The K$N fits in the stock box but give better flow than the OEM filter.

    No, I'd have to buy the Big sucker kit, that will bolt up for me.

    It smells like I'm already running rich.

    I'll do the K&N and see if the extra air helps.

    I went for a short ride today and The scoot ran well, but the filter needs replaced, and I feel that it's running rich. Not getting enough air can in my opinion cause less atomization of gas and smell rich? What say Ye?
