PostSubject: k&n air filter   Thu Dec 03, 2015 1:59 pm

After my first season of riding I can safely say I love it! 
Going to give the bike a good service/preventative maintenance, struggling to find a k&n air filter for my k5-it's a 55 plate volusia vl800 with fuel injection.
If anyone could advise a part no. That will fit I would really appreciate it as I'm struggling!
cheers
Matt

Hiya Matt

This is a link to the K&N UK site.  They list several '05 models - I'd be inclined to give 'em a call & ask which is suitable

Hi Dave personally I buy K&N for the fact they should last as long as the ownership of the bike,(cheaper), performance wise totally unknown.

At best with a re jet and some dyno time? (for carbed models)  10% possibly? which in reality is equivalent to 5 bhp at the engine, 3 bhp at the back wheel, Is it noticeable? power wise, probably not, you'll just get a smoother running engine which is more willing to rev due to the free'er breathing, economy wise? it should balance itself out unless you take advantage of the extra hp?

I'll have a chat with the guys who dynoed mine the other month & see what they say.  It's been running a treat since then & I don't fancy having to bugger around with it

Simbo that profile pic had me in stitches!Brilliant! Thanks for all the advise here-my main concern was if there were different housings for carb and non carb models,had one seller on ebay say k&n don't list one for my bike :(
Thought I would come here as you guys have been great with advise so far!

That's strange? They list them on their web site under Suzuki C50 part number SU-8001, it's the same part number for all VL800 2001 right through to 2008 when it changed to the bigger filter box.
