    My Suzie is brand new (2019 DR650) and I went to a site that has aftermarket parts and they offer a breathe easy kit that looks like a good deal. My question is: has anyone used it with good results and most importantly, which air filter do you use? The Twin-Air looks like it would breathe better than the K&N with a filter wrap. The K&N looks like it might be easier to maintain. Please give me your thoughts and/or feedback.

    I thought all Jap bike threads went into Beasts. Confusing.

    Moving it to thumpers will get the audience your looking for whom might know the answer, no experience with the DR so cant really help here.
    Did something similar on a ktm 640.
    Was/am a fan of the oiled foam filters over k&n but thats a personal choice

    Are you prepared to adjust the air/fuel mixture after changing the intake? Change at one end often requires change at another.

    Yes - I'm prepared ... to buy a less restrictive exhaust, install a jet kit and put either a foam air filter or gauze (K&N) filter on my bike. You're right, change at one end often requires change at the other end, and some changes in the middle too.

    You're on the wrong block here.
