The microscopic gain/weight saving (placebo) that may be achieved are far out weighed by the loss of protection against the elements, water and mud in particular.

For a road bike, no biggy, but for offroad, no way.

If you want the best filtration for your motor you cant get better than oem paper for the finest particle filtration size with and add an easy to clean UniFilter Pre to protect your paper filter.

Just MHO,............ but what would I know.

If you use a Uni pre-filter then possibly a BMC main filter would be the go, then you can wash/re-use the BMC.



I have a standard paper/Unifilter combo & will look at the BMC when the paper is stuffed.

Just remember to get the model specific filter as their is a slight difference in the 950 and 990 filters. Some over at orange crush have had issues with incorrect sealing using BMC I suspect due to the wrong model.

Another brand to consider would be DNA, basically the same thing.

OZWAZ, did you need to alter your jetting much after fitting the CPR ?

More info is required to know what the verdict is ....

ie. is yours a 950 or 990 , and Adventure or SE , does yours have std pipe and muffler or aftermarket Mufflers or aftermarket full system and has it been dyno tuned ( or not ) or electronically tuned via a chip ?

We all have different set ups and hardware installed on our bikes so a full knowledge of a particular set up when weighing in on a product review is most helpfull to anybody wishing to take , or , not take your advice .

I have this filter fitted and have had serious problems with dust entering the 'clean' side of the filter.
I am running oiled pre filter and have the octopus blocked and siastic aroung where the hose enters the air box.
I have since refitted the BMC filter with lots of grease all around the air box join.
My thoughts are the filter simply does not seal efficiently around the perimiter of the air box and am now considering if the paper filter would be the way to go??

Been checking out this CPR system and it really looks the goods.
Has fitting the power tune been a major advantage. ie fuel use, power, smoother running etc

Are you using the correct model for you bike? There is a difference between 950 and 990.

I use a DNA and have not had any issues so far. Dries out fast as well when I drowned the bike.

Yeah Chop, it is the right one. The last couple of rides I have done have been extra dusty so it has had a bit of pressure on it. I have had a look on the net and that CPR unit is worth investigation

Yes Gee1 the tune system really made a diff.as i now have 2 maps on call and no more fuel is used unless i want it to and the whole bike runs so much better.On full noise, power map used, it is a cranky bastard but thats what its all about isn`t it? The local dyno tune agent just mucked me around and acted as if he was talking directly to the dyno god and said i would have to wait 6 weeks for a booking @ $570 for a map job . F that.
Tight work last week (Coast road Lions Den Hotel 2 Cairns) 199.4km = 9.8l of premium on econo mode
Wide open (Inland road Cairns 2 Rossville) 270 km = 26.2l of premium 40 deg.c ambient fun mode
