A new question about DL air filter's
P/O put a K&N filter on my 650 and the Suzuki gasket isn't on it.
The K&N's is a one piece molded rubber body, with the filter media part of it.( In plain words, the surface sandwiched between the airboxes two halves is rubber.) It looks to me the rubbers thickness is thicker that the space it resides in when all is screwed together. So, the Suzuki gasketi sn't needed...or even maybe a good idea to use.
-Does K&N specify the use of the OEM gasket?
-Isn't the OEM filter a hard plastic material and the OEM gasket wraps around it's perimeter?
- Is everybody else using the OEM gasket on the K&N?
