Back to OEM Air Filter

About to remove BAK and go back to factory set up with a K & N filter. Apart from reinstalling OEM plate & connecting air sensor anything else need to be done?

Nope. That's it. I did the same thing, and with Ivan's flash in and my EJK hanging on a nail over my workbench, it's now my preferred setup. There's such a marked performance improvement over the OEM ECU that any slight loss in performance as a result of the lesser intake volume isn't at all noticeable. The lesser intake noise though, is very obvious.

Thanks Peg, does the crankcase breather go thru the top of the plastic housing on the OEM air cleaner side?

And did you leave your air switching hose plugged?

I've left the hose which runs from the 11 o'clock position in the back of the right side airbox plugged, and IIRC the crankcase breather consists of a short rubber hose that runs from the back of the front cylinder into a hole in the top of the crossover tube? Chuckster supplied a long piece of hose that clamps there, running to the back of his intake plate. That one comes off, and the short hose goes in it's place.

Thanks Peg, I just kept Chucksters longer pipe in the crossover which should still be OK. Just need to get rid of visitors now so I can go for a spin to test it
