EVO ll Air Filter--K and N Part#
« on: September 12, 2015, 11:27:00 pm »
Planning on installing the pod style K and N filter but don't think I'll go with the EVO ll cam in that kit from KTM.  From the Super Moto Junkie site, I have come up with 2 different K and N part numbers.  RX-5179 appears to have a straight mounting arrangement with filter material in the end cap of the filter.  RU-1750 appears to have a slight angle in the mount and no filter material in the filter end cap.  76506915000 is the KTM part number I found for the filter in the EVO ll kit.  Anyone have any info as to which part would be the best fit on a 2012 690 Enduro?  Advantages/disadvantages?  And is the filter in the KTM kit one of these K and N #s or something different?

Thanks!

I went ahead and ordered from Munn using the KTM part numbers for the filter and mounting kit.  Filter is K and N 5179, with filter material in the end cap.  Mounting kit includes seat bracket and battery box--no battery cable extension.  I did not want the EVO ll cam.  Now to work with Tune ECU.

FWIW

Are you mostly on road? Ive read on other forums that the oiled filters like K&N and DNA let too much of the fine particles through for off-roading. But they're good for on road.

Thanks.  I have read the attacks on K and N over the years.  I'll let everyone make up their own mind.  I have been very happy with properly oiled K and N filters in off road situations.  I am also very comfortable with oiled foam as used on most dirt bikes.
