You can fit a K&N filter on a diesel car. Our chennai member Nitrous was running his Tata Sumo with a Universal K&N. I vaguely recollect him saying that the intake noise was too much and hence he removed it.

Send him a PM for more info.

There are few members who have K&N in thier bikes like Pulsar and Karizma. It will increase performance but i dont think their will be k&n available for your 1984 bullet.

hmm. . coz i just saw on the two wheeler section under the thread 'thunderbid chopper' a chopper with a K & N air filter. But there was no 'mother' or father of that bike to answer my question. and hence i posted the question here.

I was using a "Uni" filter on one of my bull, yes did find a good change in power and milage. but had to fiddle quiet a bit with carb settings.
like rejetting and niddle settings. this will test your patience and your mechs but is worth it

Fitting wont be a issue, i had a oprn type filter which was directly mounted to the carb. only isssue is it gets dirty very soon and also you need something like a mesh which locks it. just to ensure none flicks it when its parked.

good luck!

Rates are from Bangalore.Wonder if there is any price difference in the quote's mentioned

I got it done from Ozz One in IndiraNagar(pretty close to hot tracks on OMR).
I was advised this kind of install as seen in the pic.

Binz suggested something else. I was even told to put in a fiber sheild kinda thingy between the filter and the engine.

No time , actually havent faced any problems as yet.
Cleaned the filter after it ran for 6k kms. Nothing else.

So boys.. I have been rambling about the KnN and done nothing about it for 2 weeks since getting the car. Well here is the job.



Mclaren.. sorry did not take your advice on the 3550. I know thats enough for the throttle body etc...

however the 0950 Universal.. for 1k more is all about MHP , More Growl and Under bonnet bling when people (like me) who dont know too much about mods, to see it and go "Thats one huge filter" .

Damm thats a huge growl.. did not know it would be that loud after 3000rpm. my ol esteem had the std flat round type and it was not this loud.

So was pleasantly surprised.

RJ.. bought it in torque and he sent me to fix it in Ozz cause the Torque fitting boys had not come in yet.

Going to check the car and get some advice from fast cars near atria hotel. Cousin with a E-Zen goes there.

Whats next you say????
