if i remember right farhan had one similar to that fixed to his mivec lancer a day before the first track day in chennai. remember seeing it at electra auto. i also remember him saying something like its not suitable for daily use because it has a higher tendency of picking up rain water or something....... don't exactly remember......

I have been using one on my bike since the time i bought my bullet. It's made of double layer stainless steel mesh with no cotton sandwich in between.

Filtration obviously would not match that of a K&N, UNI or a Green. But these SS filters should flow more. I have always ridden with these filters. But the pack clearly says "Only for track use. Not for street/dusty environments"

I dont clean this filter often and like to leave it a bit dirty so as to trap dust.

I use this on my OHC. It allows more inflow of air but dirties the engine oil faster than the K&N for sure. I also leave it dirty to filter more.

Not a very reliable option in terms of city / daily drives. I think it's a bit performance oriented, more to do with a larger volume of air intake for those moments.

I think cotton material is the best when it comes for filtering, but correct me if i'm wrong

Let me guess from whom you bought this, hyper.......@#&!T#@% sports? Get rid of it else your engine will get dirty.

A bit?!!!!? its a fully-performance-oriented-screw-engine-life model.you should do what it says on the box and use it only for track days(tarmac, not gravel)

so do you plan to change it back to stock? or atleast shift to a filter that is more restrictive but also protective? thats what is needed in a daily drive right?
how frequently do you change your oil? and how much has the car run on this filter?
