I agree with Josh, and you, now, on the K&N.
But there's nothing wrong with the OEM air filter. I've had no issues with them.
My Wee now has a new K&N, but it came, unused, with the bike. When I had the valve recall done, probably at around 30K miles, I asked the dealer to drop in the new K&N. They did that. K&Ns appear to be well made. Maybe hang onto it and use it at some point in the future?
Good luck, regardless.
2007 Wee. Blue. Bought at 5K miles. Sold at 32K+ miles. Gone but not forgotten.
2012 Wee2 Adventure. Black. Bought at 26K miles. Now 41K+. Love it! (but plan to own a 2014+ Vee, someday).
