Designed as an original equipment replacement, a Pipercross filter replaces the factory air filter within the airbox. Installation is as simple as opening the airbox, discarding the old filter and replacing it with a free-flowing Pipercross air filter. Why foam? Because it is better! Airborne dirt particles quickly clog conventional filters, resulting in a power-robbing loss of airflow. The dual-stage porous foam design employed by Pipercross traps large quantities of dirt while still allowing alternate paths for airflow, resulting in minimal pressure drop and longer service life.
