Default no k&n filters for RX135

actually i also have an RX135 5 speed and also was planning to fit K&N air filter. the fact is that K&N don't produce any air filters for RX135. My friend got a K&N air filter fitted onto his fiero. It did not increase his performance or mileage. Just a pure waste of money. I guess the only indian bike that K&N produces air filters for is the RD350.

the benefit of a freeflow filter is only when the carb is properly upjetted and tuned. Also a freeflow filter gives only marginal improvement in powetr and hence do not expect like a rocket.
