    Hi could anyone tell me the biggest K&N filters I can fit on a rocket touring. I dont want them under the bearclaw and I want them big. I like to tinker and can make adjustments. Can anyone help?

    If you do not want them under the bearclaw then you can only instal one filter a replacement for the stock filter, if you are not removing the intake plumbing do not waste your money on a single K&N

    I'm 6'2", so just take into consideration that your left knee may;) be hitting the rear filter. I even had some of the K&N's with the tilted base, and still had clearance problems. I now have 3 short K&N's "under" my bear claw. Also now I don't have to carry a couple of plastic bags to cover the "no bear claw" filters if/when parked in the rain.

    Other than aesthetics - why? - Planning on serious engine modś?. If so I suggest the PIPERCROSS route with @Claviger bellmouths inside.

    The issue of left knee rubbing the filter is one to be aware of, especially with footboards. Apart from filter damage - your inside left knee will be black and oil covered.

    And be aware the emissions tests in Spain have just been made EVEN more difficult to pass. Received the alert yesterday.

    I just installed these sn-2550 filters. They are a tapered oval, 6" tall and they have a 20 degree angle in the base. They come in 5",6", or 7". The k and n website has a large selection of universal clamp on filters. I think anything with a 62 mm base will work. IMAG0424.jpg
