Default Replacement filter for Forcewinder Air Cleaner

My filter got crushed and bent and needs replacing. I checked ebay and found some for $70 and one for $20 from the pics they look identically.

Have any of you guys replaced your filter elements on your Forcewinder yet, if so, what did you use?

$20 filter http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/FORCE...Q5fAccessories

Both look good to me.

I wonder if there are larger filters to go on the Forcewinder.

Well the expensive one is a K&N Filter and the other is probably a knock off.

Get the $20 one. It is actually what comes new on Forcewinders now and that is actually Force Motor Products selling the $20 one on e-bay.

It was reported to me by a vender/site sponsor that the new Forcewinders come with knock offs not K&N's. It could very well be that they are made on the same assembly line by the very same slaves. Hard tellin', not knowin'.
Digging a little deeper for a little bigger filter for the desert.
Know of any bigger filters?

If you click on "other items" in the ad you'll find that the seller has the filters in a 5-pack for $45.00...that not bad, $7.00 per filter..how could you go wrong?

Thanks Flash. The price is great.
What got me on to the Forcewinder is the potential tuning advantage of cooler air.
Oiled gauze cotton is great for performance, read that air flow, not for filtering the fine stuff. Just want my Kake and eat her too.

Default K&N Canister Air Filter

This is a bit strange but check it out.
I know there is something out there for my bike.

Thats why you keep them oiled up, the oil stops the fine particles..
