K&N or BMC...mod suggestions???

I am new to the bike world and just sold a bunch of stuff so I decided I am going to dump some cash on the new CBR600rr i just bought. I ordered a new slip-on exhaust and am gonna order my power commander but I don't know what type of air filter to get. I have always run K&N in my autos. Just don't know what is better or gives the best power increase. What else can anyone recommend as a good mod. I have about $1200 to spend so give me some ideas please..........If I do decide I am comfortable to track run this thing. It will only be on the 1/4 mile drag.

Well that bike was meant for the twisties, an 1100 XX Blackbird would have done better for the drag strip. But o each his own.

I ran a K&N and it helped, I am going to run a BMC now to see what it feels like

I would stick with the K&N just because it is tried and true

I do realize that they weer made for the twisties. I think once I am alot more comfortable with the bike and the handling, I might use it for what it was built. I have alot of experience in the 1/4 mile from autos.......I figured I would start there and get used to the speed and then I would work my way into the speed and handling tracks.

Neither will give you anything on the 600RR. Save your money and spend it on the mapping of the PC. If you want an air filter that does work , and even then, it doesn't do anything dramatic, look into getting a DNA filter from somewhere, maybe one of the site sponsors can track on down, only filter I've seen work on the later model bikes. Hope this helps.

Stock filter here too.

Save your money for leathers, boots, gloves, and track days.

Just a different brand of filter, Apparently nobody brings them in to the U.S as of yet, but I would suggest one of the site sponsors looks into doing it, coz they do work. The others do not. LOL

K&N sucks ass for our bikes. I wiped down the excessive oil from the K&N and lightly reoiled it for the new installation. It actually bogged down the bike. It is almost 1"x1" smaller all the way around in diameter than a stock filter. The stock filter runs better than the K&N. I installed a BMC into my bike and that biiotch breathes and runs way better. Keep in mind none of this was done on a dyno or nothing like that. I just know my experience is K&N sucks ass, and BMC kicks ass!
