K&N air filterpart number

VTXbrit, what part number did you go for a replacement filter, chasing a bigger one for the Tornado, anyone know if anyone does air filters for Benelli's?

I used a Kawasaki 6R filter (by K&N) and modified slightly to make it fit the box

Re: what year Kwaka?

the part number for the K&N filter i used is ..ka-6098 and its for a kawasaki zx6r models 1998-2002 but as stated before you do have to modify slightly cut the corners off, notch out for the screw bosses and make a base plate which i fitted with rivetts and sealed with a hot melt glue gun.... its worth doing because.........................
1) much better airflow
2) no sh*t bypasses the filter
3) the filter will last for ever (nearly)

Air Filter Modification to accept a K&N filter

Do you have pictures of the mods in detail?
How about a drawing of the base plate?

I saw this when you talked about it months ago, but wasn't paying close attention because it concerned the TNT. Now I realise it's totally applicable to the Tornado and it has got me intrigued.

Does K&N do one for the abov? I believe the UK operations may have made up a template for them?
