Don't know if anyone has posted this yet, but the I was just notified by K&N that a filter for the 08 RR is available. Part number is HA-1008 and the MSRP is $67.

Re: K&N Filter for 08 RR

A year late and most likely a few HP short compared to the others or even the stock for that matter. I wonder if this will fit better than their other filters. On the previous RR, they had at least 4 iterations and the last one would fit in the airbox but still had gaps where it is supposed to seal.

Re: K&N Filter for 08 RR

I kinda wonder about their designs sometimes too. On my VFR the stock air filter element covers almost the entire area between the top and bottom of the airbox. The K&N one covered only maybe a third of the area, pretty much just the part directly over the throttle bodies. Made me say, "Hmm"...ya know?

That's just great. Less filter material means less flow. I'm sure the stock didn't use the entire area, but as it gets dirty, it would expand out.
