Thank u ShortStack, I'm thinking about changing AirFilter and Plugs at the same time. I got about 10k on the bike now plus I'm trying to get an opinion about the BMC street filter. Wondering if I need a Fuel management for that filter?

to get the most from it, you need FI, and exhaust

allowing more air in, does not much good if it cant get out.

Sorry I wasn't Clear enough. I have a Leo Vince Slip On and want to change out the Air Filter plus Spark Plugs. I wanted to know if anybody had experience with changing to a BMC Street filter without the Fuel management? I don't want to spend money on an PC or Bazzaz. Thanks RR Family

slipon / filter == you really should get fi -- your running a major risk of leaning out the motor and causing damage.

Straight from Leo Vince's website
LeoVince SBK Oval Systems
SBK Oval exhaust systems are powerful, durable and most importantly affordable, providing significant weight savings and increased horsepower. They are designed to run with stock jetting or fuel injection settings
I sincerely doubt that adding an air filter element with an exhaust that was designed to run with your stock settings will make you run too lean.

Edit: Yes I know that adding a filter will effectively add more air to your mixture but not at a rate that it will significantly effect anything

except, adding a filter makes it not so much a stock setting

who knows, maybe their r&d was betting on the restrictive nature of the stock filter to keep the machine in spec

One of the reasons I got the Leo, no need for FUel management. I guess I might go OEM filter instead of taking a chance.

im not saying your doomed, im, just saying becareful, fyi.

it wouldnt surprise me if your next post after installing a filter would be "my bike feels short on power" how ever.

Adding a race filter wont make it run too lean. It will run smoother then before guaranteed. Get some nice NGK plugs, that BCM filter (which I'd recommend only if you actually care because you probably wont notice a difference) Oem does keep your engine alot healthier though. Now if you plan on doing a short stack mod, then you will want a FI system. Thats when mine run a little nasty for a bit.

I know the BMC is not gonna make a Hugh difference so I should just stick with OEM filter and not take a chance. Is the Iridium NGK the best one for our bikes?
