Very interested in seeing how much of a difference this is going to make versus the stock one!

BMC FIlter

I went for the BMC filter and an Akrapovic exhaust...


I also went -1 tooth on the rear sprocket



Rides much better now, better response and revs through the gears nicely


not sure what power gains I have but it doesn't really matter

The little filter is tiny! I can't see it making much performance difference, but it would be nice to have the option to clean instead of replace the filter. I'll definitely buy one when they are available.

Please give us feedback on the new filter once you’ve had some riding time with it. Thanks in advance...

I'd be happy to, but the bike will be in hibernation mode until approximately the start of April, so someone (in a warmer place) may very well beat me to it. It will be run with the Akrapovic race exhaust, so hopefully the bike will breathe a little more freely with both on there.

I'll post up some pictures comparing it with the factory filter soon though, for anyone who is interested!

As promised! Great little filter that will undoubtedly outflow the OEM filter, but definitely at the cost of filtration efficiency. Fit a little better than them OEM for me, it's not as squashed when you pivot the air snorkel up into place.
