This nifty K&N oil filter has a hex stub welded on to ease removal (and make it easy to torque to the correct setting), as well as a small hole for safety wiring. Silkolene provided an array of fluids, including Pro-4 Plus 100 percent ester synthetic motor oil ($13 per liter), brake fluid, chain lube and fork oil. A K&N reusable air filter showed a small improvement over stock on the dyno, but we ended up hogging out the stock unit for almost a full horsepower gain over even the K&N. We also pulled the stock airbox snorkel, which made a big difference to midrange power without sacrificing top-end.
