Has anyone used the K&N carb filters and do the Dnepr bike  run much better with them fitted. I'm just going through a list of stuff for improvements for a future build and thought I'd get some feed back off you guys.

My mt-16 has the pod type k&ns because it has electric start so lost original air box the only problem ihad was hauling it in a driving rain and carbs were full of water would rather have original if it weren't for starter.

This is what I have http://www.oldtimerg...roducts_id=1119
Depends on your air filter housing. I have an M66 with the old style filter.  That said, there's quite a debate in the older BMW fora about how good a K&N filter is for what the bikes need.  It's akin to an oil thread ;-)
For these bikes, I think mainly making sure the bearings are good and everything is assembled correctly and carefully will pay more dividends in the long run.

cheers for that guys I wonder if a using a directional air filter will work so the carb does not get floaded, there are some filters with a shroud that covers the gauze mesh that may be a possibility as well.
