12000k service coming up. Both filters have the same price but which one to prefer?
Any suggestions?

The piper cross just looked to be put together better.

Can anyone tell me what difference there is buy fitting one of these so called better quality filters?

Does it make any difference to the running of the bike in terms of performance..

Also, while talking of performance what other small tweaks could you make or replace to improve things? :thumbup:

The gain in performance is very small.
The gain in your pocket is big since they are washable and you never need to change it again :thumbup:

Basically chaps,

The replacement airfilters are "free airflowing" compared to std type.

I prefair pipercross foam over K &N type but its your choice your money:eek:,

as regards the cost yes they are more expensive to buy but have a much longer life span than std, around 10+ years many on here have them Austin and Yen but to name a few.

As for power boost around 2-5bhp not really seat of the pants stuff but does smooth out lower rev range on the Alp etc.

I have K&N on both bikes. 2 reasons: cost, and they should be fit and forget (well for about the next 50,000miles anyway) and so far they have been. I have cleaned and oiled the TA's once after 40,000miles and have put about another 40,000 on since.

Why K&N? Availability, known brand, didn't know about pipercross, i like the stickers :rolleyes:

I see you're in Greece

Not sure what dust levels are like where you are or how much off roading you plan on doing if any but I'd go with Phil's recommendation to get Pipercross. I have K&N but ran a standard filter for a past Morroco trip to prevent too much dust clogging up but then had problems at high speed at high altitude. The Pipercross would have fared a lot better and would have been easier to clean en route
