      I have the K&N RA066-V filter and I use their water repellent sock. I have ridden in the rain a couple of times for over an hour and no trouble.

        highvoltage , not splitting hairs, but light rain of hard rain, light rain doesnt pose a problem without a sock., only when the element gets soaked and occludes air flow.

          Very hard rain. Also considering I was on the highway, both times, doing 65 mph.

        I went through the trouble of testing for you in a torrential Faucet test, no water passed through the sock at full pressure when held under the tap for some time, so I agree with Highvoltage that they work for their intended purpose.

          Mort, just to show you great minds think alike. When I first received the rain sock, I plugged the intake on the filter and placed the sock on it. Then I went out on the yard and turn on the garden hose. After a good 15 min. water did not go through.

          just an fyi for the newbies here, many of us dont like the way the OEM filter assmbly winds up knocking at your knee, that is part of the decision to go the KN clamp-on, in addtition to the doubling of air flow . but keep in mind, carbeurated models will instantly run too lean, which can damage your motor by allowing it to get to hot; especially true if coupled with aftermarket exhaust. be sure to rejet, follow RSC directions. I am not sure what needs done for the less powerful Fuel Injected models? I say that because it is alleged that a carbed bike can be over-tweaked, but a FI cannot????? not sure the difference is noticeable, but its kind a like the BLACK color Roadies are the fastest, or RED porsches are also.

            You didn't find much cause not much to do except adjust your PMS screw until you change your exhaust also, then you will need to rejet your carb.

            Jetting when you change exhaust 1700cc 04 to 07. 172.5 main, #40 pilot,needle clip on the 4th groove from the blunt end of a Barons adjustable needle, pms 2 1/2 turns out to start with. This is using Mikuni jets.

            Is that a modified stock air box? Where did you get the grills?

            Stock modified air box.
            I fabricated the grills from a scrap piece of 5/32" aluminum screen.

          I just bought the RC1980. I'm going to fab a bracket ti hold it in place. I will be selling the Yamaha BAK in the near future, for a very reasonable price, if anyone is interested. I'll post pics when it goes up for sale.

            I just came in from the garage after installing the K&N 1980. It took all of 5 minutes, good thing because it's freakin cold outside. Filter fit snugly on the carb, and after getting the clamp good and tight with an 8mm socket, I started the bike up to hear if there was any intake noise. I had the Yamaha accessory BAK on the bike, so I was always hearing a bit of intake noise, but the K&N really didn't sound much louder. I will be offering the Yamaha kit for sale soon, cheap. Pics will be coming soon. The filter seems really securely mounted, but I will fab a bracket before I ride it in the spring.

              yeah, its not rocket science, 3/4 alum from lowes or HD, one bolt thru back side of air cleaner. note Stainles bolt and LOCKNUT, LOCKNUT on outside, so if it ever gets loose, it dont get sucked in . youll need a small hand or a set of hemastats to feed OUT the bolt thru from the inside. I used a MAPS torch to bend the aluminum , grind or round over the ends, stainless hex bolts and washers, and a barrel washer for rear one, because the cylinder heads are offset a smidgeon.
              Immediately after KN install, I had to rejet mine instantly with factory carb and jetting. it would idle fine, but "you got a let down when u put the hammer down", as they say. if you guys remember , i put duct tape over almost the entire new KN air like 70 % , then she ran right. then i knew it was rejet time. i had stage 1 exhaust at that time if i remember.
              IMHO, this is the best of all worlds, stage 1 is free, gives nice sound, benefit from factory crossover,and heat shields, good chrome. KN is affordable, and reuseable.
              AND air filter DONT KNOCK YOUR DAMN inside of you KNEE.

                Didn't AR Hillbilly trash is motor using bolts that came off and got sucked into his intake? I you have to use a bracket (you don't) fasten with HD pop rivet.
