Hi all, going to service to my bike soon thought I would use a pipercross but in sites I have checked they only seem to date up to 2005 my alps a 07 so I was hoping someone would know if one would fit, bought the bike from a dealer with 1500mls on her, now up to 6000 with no probs so far. still planning on fitting heated grips any recomendations, have altered the seat and fitted a honda touring screen with a M.R.A. moveable section which works great for me,I am 6ft 5ins. Certainly could have used some heated grips today, great when I went out but after 2hrs on the way home of none stop sleet and wind feeling in the finger dept was virtually none existant. Regards to all.

Try and see if you can get a K&N for your model, both have the same principal. :thumb:

Seems 05 year quoted as last by a few accessory makers - saw same for Remus i wanna buy.

Pipercross less expensive than K&N - i got one & couldnt tell difference

Of course if the Pipercross perishes in a year i'll kich meself but in the Auto field they are well respected amongs petrolheads so good enough for me !

Silvalp, I just had a Pipercross fitted by local bikeshop at 12k service, he was not sure if it would re-jetting or not so did not change anything else. I dont think it is running as smooth at high revs, have you changed anything or had it jetted?

I can not make up my mind as to wether to get a Pipercross or a K&N air filter next.

I changed my air filter recently for a reusable (read washable) one that I got from Wemoto. It's by a firm called Simota, that I hadn't heard of before.

Have a look here -

Seems to do the job okay. Had a close look at the construction after the, how shall I say this?. "in depth" discussion about K&N filters earlier in the year. The weave appears to be very close, unlike a particular photo I remember of someone's K&N filter - which, if I remember correctly, kicked off the discussion in the first place.

Oh, and it's a nice blue colour too. Not that you can see it when it's installed mind.......:D

Blue fibres work much better, maybe, possibly, well Ok not very likely :D

I had the Wemoto foam conical filters on my RD03 and they worked marvellously.

I've got a flat foam Pipercross filter that I got for my Versys without realising that they come with one as standard, only diff seems to be the OEM one says Kawasaki on it :thumbup: 12,000+ miles now and the filters fine with a regular clean.

BTW anyone seen that new series "Argumental" I think it's really good, well only when it's not really bad ;)
