    Can you tell us about the BMC air filter. Sounds like a success ! I looked at the RG website and what I see is a flat panel filter. Are you cutting the air box to fit a panel filter ?

    [​IMG] 2 Cups , You've found a good replacement air filter . This BMC is made in Italy . K&N can stuff it.

    Tried to order this on line but they don't ship to Australia, has anyone else had any luck?
    I rang the Brisbane norton dealer and they are after 206 aud for genuine one

    K&N have been banned by one of the motorcycle track day groups with which I ride due to a number of failures.

    What happened ? I know that the foam air filter can start on fire after a backfire.

    Ah, sorry Tony, I didn’t understand your stuff it comment, I get you now!

    The BMC link shows a flat filter in the pic? Not the Norton cylindrical affair?

    Is it just a wrong pic?

    Yeah.
    The filter pictured is the flat type used in sportbike/superbike airboxes.

    Change to motor bike selection and choose Norton from the manufacturer list then choose 961

    On some of the K&N external filters, the failures have led to a K&N recall of at least one part number ( https://www.knfilters.com/recallkn204 ). Some believe that the built in nut at the top of the filter is being over tightened, but others say there are other issues.

    Power commander has really helped with the fuelling of the bike, downside is mpg reduced from 55mpg to 47 mpg only done 400 miles so not highly accurate. Don't really care too much about mpg as bike much smoother now:)

    Hi Tony
    I ordered from BMC, but order does not seem to proceed, same status „order being picked“ since last Wednesday. Has your order been treated? May be they are on Holiday.
