On the Gulf Coast we see RAIN. No such thing as a drizzle. If it's raining, it's usually a downpour. No fun for driving in let alone riding in. The winters are mild but still that 'ole Southern Humidity. 55 degrees feels like 30 with the chill going right through you. Also, not too fun to ride in. I'm envious of the riders on the West Coast.Anyone ever study how filters are rated for cold flow? Riding in a cold rain or under 55 degrees makes me wonder. I sure wouldn't want to (likely have for years) ride around all day with the filter in bypass.
Who other than me blocks off the oil cooler under 55 to keep oil temps up.
Yeah yeah, here come the I never see temps under 55 or have rain where I live posts.
I would not recommend using the K & N filter on any motorcycle. On numerous occasions, I've had to remove these filters on friends bikes that were over-tightened. This problem has now occurred on an ST3 motor I just purchased as a spare outfitted with this horrible filter.US available: (exact)[/B]
K & N KN-153 (The nut on the can allows for easy removal)
Actually, it seems as though I am due to order a large plate of crow and a sturdy fork, after my post # 18 above.K&N serves several flavors of kool aid!
