Not for the experts, but if you've wondered about doing your own work but were unsure, these jobs are easy with basic tools. If i can do it, a monkey can. Hope it's useful.
K&N are well respected. It was up to spec at the time and still works well. Think iv'e done 5,000 miles fully loaded in varying temps since that oil change. It's just not accurate to say it's the 'wrong filter'. by spec and by my experience, so i disagree.The one U used is obsolete it does not have the Bypass valve built in so when your cheap and nasty K&N filter collapses the engine is starved of OIL lubrication, by the way the Filter is made in China stopped using them in RC8R when replacing it the end cap came OFF when extracting it from the engine
Agreed. And I think it's been done by others in this thread already. In the video i referenced what i used at the time, which is all i can do. In time - most every part will be redundant. There was a lot of confident comments asserting the K&N filter would destroy the engine, which to my knowledge is simply not factual.Sporty, I have no doubt that the filter you are using is fine. But I agree that if you are treating this thread as advice to other members, you should reference the currently specified filter.
