Leaves me with two options

1. Buy from Methods Automotive.
2. Order online from the UK.

Also are there any ways to identify fake filters?
Methods will not sell it to you, he does not sell in the retail. You will have to go to one of the Authorised Dealers only. I have checked this personally by visiting him for the RC 1060 for my Fz.

CHEERS,

you could buy just the stickers from ebay. i dont think stickers would vouch if the filters are real.

If they are able to manufacture a replica filter, they should also be able to manufacture the sticker.

Sending the product code to the manufacturer is a good idea.

Beejay,

Some months back I got K&N filter for my Scorpio. I sourced it through Xenos auto boutique in Avinashi Road, Coimbatore. Xenos is a reputed place to buy. Xenos is part of Pricol group.
