Does anyone know what the part number is for a K&N Oil Filter that will fit an 06 600? The Manual only says... "Use a genuine suzuki oil filter or an equivalent filter designed for your motorcycle"

And what about the part number for a K&N or BMC Air filter if you have that handy too... THANKS!

Thanks guys

Now do any of the sponsors on this site sell a K&N 138? I'd rather buy it from one of the sponsors than some random store online... plus the autozone nearby doesn't carry anything for my bike.

THANKS AGAIN

KN-138 is real popular and CycleGear always has them in stock. Almost every gixxer uses them and even my Kan-o-tuna does.

someone did a review of these filters, they cut them open and inspected them in a few different categories.
The one that came out on top was the Suzuki filter. I am using the VESRAH which was in the test.

I see if i can find it.

Here it is. It was in the link i post earlier.

Looks like the K&N is a waste of money.

What is more important then the filter you use is how often you change it. I only go 3k miles before an oil and filter change, but I do use the scotts so I don't use any other filters. Changing it often though is more important then the brand of filter or oil imo...

I change my oil and filter every 3K. Last year i was using motorex semi sync but this year i switched to amsoil because i can get it cheaper through work ($31 a gallon for 10w40 motorcycle oil)

yes we sell the scots. They are 104 shipped. Yes i use to change mine at 3k and now i just clean the scotts every 3k. Some places will tell you that 5k miles is fine, but imo these suckers rev to all hell and the place that built our block for our r1 stated that every 3k with the abuse these bikes go through is the best maintenance you can do. After 60k on our r1 our internal engine looked mint. Tuning it well and changing the oil every 3k and these engines can go a long ways making max hp.

I'm a huge fan of buying good equipment (filter, chain kit, air filter) and taking care of it so it lasts a very long time. In the long run you often save over buying cheaper stuff imo...

how long does it take to pay off any other mod if you want to make it a 100% financial situation? I like not having to go buy one all the time and knowing that it filters better then an oem filter and is useable on ANY suzuki sportbike.

People often just like the best for their bike and some just like to tinker with it lol It's not about a 100% financial situation or we should all be riding vespa's and saving gas LOL

I never said it's 100% better and the best bang for the buck...it's just a nicety not to have to go buy one and in the long run it starts to pay itself off and on our r1 it's paid itself off 2 times
and if we do another yami sportbike as our next project we'll probably sell the r1 we have and move the filter over to the new one. It's the same with an rk breaker kit as well. How many chain kits do you need to do to pay one off? Just nice to have it at times and especially if you plan on keeping it for the long haul. If you plan on selling it in a year or two then not worth it most likely....

I understand your point... I just wanted to point out to those that don't keep their bikes for more than a couple years or don't put that many miles won't see that much of a benefit. Personally I'm not impressed with the Scott's one. I'll stick with the Purolator filters.

I do those sort of km on my bikes (except when stolen or crashed first!) ... and i still use stock air filters. Keeping crap out is more important to me than the cost difference in the long term

... and im not interested in cleaning and re-oiling the filter.
