WHERE IT ALL BEGAN Ken Johnson and Norm McDonald make up the “K” and the “N” in K&N. Ken and Norm were avid motorcycle racers who started out by making a line of handlebars in the 1960’s. While promoting their handlebars, they also began experimenting with different air filter designs to combat the frustrations of the air filter technology of the day. They had found that the most successful design consisted of layers of cotton gauze sandwiched between wire mesh, and coated with oil to help trap particles. This design provided good air flow, trapped dirt particles, and allowed the filter to be cleaned and re-used. In 1969 K&N began production of these filters, and the worlds Best Air Filter was born!

K&N – Air & Oil Filters

Built for racers... By racers

Air Filters Engine Protection & Air Filtration We take filtration seriously. Anyone can make a filter that will flow more air. The trick is to flow more air safely. In our opinion, we hit the sweet spot – an optimal blend of high air flow, filtration efficiency, durability and dust capacity – and our filters are re-usable. K&N Air Filter media has been tested both in-house and by independent labs using the ISO5011 test developed by the Society of Automotive Engineers. In addition, we test many of our filters both in and out of the OE airbox ensuring proper fit and function. Our goal is to design filters with the maximum possible airflow achievable while providing guaranteed engine protection. K&N has a massive range of specific and universal filters to suit almost any application, and provide the optimum balance of performance and protection. FEATURES • High air flow • Excellent filtration • Designed to increase horsepower and acceleration • Pre-Oiled and ready for use. • Washable and Reusable • Will NOT void vehicle warranty • Lasts up to 50,000 miles before cleaning is required (depending on driving conditions)

K&N Air Filters are tested for the following: • Air Flow. For optimum performance. • Air Filtration. To ensure that the filter provides performance while doing its primary job – protecting your motor. • Power & Torque gains. K&N always aims to give a power gain, while maintaining an exceptional level of filtration protection for your motor. • Vibration testing. K&N use vibration testing on their filters and frames to ensure that their filters will last the test of time and withstand damage that could cause filtration problems.

A K&N Air Filter is made of 4 to 6 layers of cotton gauze sandwiched between two epoxy-coated aluminum wire screens. The cotton is treated with a specially formulated grade of oil causing tackiness throughout the cotton’s microscopic strands. The nature of the cotton allows high volumes of airflow, and when combined with the tackiness of the oil creates a powerful filtering media that ensures engine protection. In contrast, most other media can not maintain the same balance of airflow and filtration throughout the filter’s life without sacrificing one or the other. With a K&N Air Filter, there is no sacrifice.

Moulded filter frames are designed to fit perfectly into your OE air box assembly.

Extensive ‘bench’ testing for flow & filtration

Oil Filters K&N Premium Wrench-Off Oil Filters Originally developed for demanding auto race applications, our premium oil filters are rapidly becoming a favourite among consumers for their outstanding reliability, durability and easy removal. Our Oil Filters Have Nuts We have all been there: Whether it’s remembering where that disappearing canister tool is; or having oil leak all over your garage and yourself; or finally giving up and pounding a screwdriver through the filter just to get if off. Most of our canister type motorcycle and ATV oil filters come with a 17 mm nut.

High-Flow Rate Our oil filters use resin impregnated cellulose filter media. This allows for higher flow rates while providing outstanding filtration. High filter flow rates are important in racing vehicles where the oil is pumped much faster than in a standard vehicle. When the engine is circulating oil at high GPM rates, the high-flow oil filter helps reduce the loss of pressure through the filtering process. Compatible with the Latest in Synthetic Engine Oils Our oil filters are ideal for high-end synthetic motor oil. Synthetic motor oil is said to offer improved flow performance at cold temperatures while providing superior protection against thermal degradation.

Canister Type Oil Filters Drilled safety wire holes for racing in canister oil filters • Most have sturdy 17 mm wrench nut where applicable to make oil filter removal quick and easy • Heavy-duty construction • Resin-impregnated filter media provides maximum filtering surface for contaminant removal • Anti-drainback valve (where applicable) eliminates dry starts, prevents oil from draining back into crankcase during engine shutdown • Internally lubricated gasket provides positive seal while allowing easy on and off of filter • Rolled threads provide extra protection against stripping • Traps 99% of harmful contaminants

K&N – Air & Oil Filters

Durable Construction for Extreme Conditions We use thicker canister walls for extra strength & durability which reduces the risk of damage from debris. They will also withstand higher oil pressures found only in racing environments. The drilled hole on the nut is for a safety wire attachment – Required for many types of racing to prevent blown oil filters from falling on the track and representing a hazard.
