    Default Have a look at my air filter...

    How many miles do you think this air filter has done, I changed this today and it was meant to have been changed on the 31st of December 2009, so do you think this looks like 6 weeks / 1,500 miles of use?

    nope looks as if it's been there longer, i see you haven't done the airbox mod, if you do it will use the whole air filter and not half.

    Looks pretty keffed to me, when I did the airbox mod mine was in similair state, and looks like mine's been on since new! Covered about 48k at the time. Only problem now is when I rev you can hear like a bellow type noise, dunno if this is normal and because more air's coming through!

    I can't comment on what sort of filter I've put in now and whether I've done the airbox mod.

    All I can say is that I've got the box for a maroon red coloured filter with a piece of leftover plastic in it, sitting in my room

    I'd expect a filter to look like that after at least 6 months out here (not so dirty air) or around a year around town.
    Now get the airbox mod done and start using the whole filter !!

    There's a how2 on the forum, when you get down to it, you'll see there's like a bit of plastic restricting the airflow.
