I truly believe that Indian Motorcycles are here for ever. Their products are great and will only get better. They may never be as big as Harley, but that doesn't matter. I know that there are a lot of HD riders who will be Indian riders soon. And some of them are on this forum.

No, that is a far from stupid question. A better question is "Does the K & N filter take the place of a stage 1 filter?" My guess is it would be pretty close. The only way to be sure would be a dyno check between a K&N filter and a Stage 1 assy, both with the Stage 1 flash and see how they compare. If they match up this could be the cheapest mod yet for the stage 1 air cleaner, (if you don't mind the looks of the factory bed pan assy). DeanStupid question...this filter doesn't require motor being flashed?....
Not necessarily. The cotton media that is oil treated on the K&N is very good at catching dirt. Part of the reason is the oil treatment. It attracts and hold dirt very well where as a stock air filter completely relies on the media to trap particles. K&N has been around a long time and I have never seen a warranty issue denied from using them except for one particular issue. If the K&N is over treated with oil and that oil works it way down the intake neck it can effect MAF sensors on some fuel injected cars. Don't see that being an issue on the Indian. DeanIf it is the exact same size as the original but lets more air in wouldnt that mean it is more porous ? If more porous would it let more dirt through? Just asking the experts.
Indian sells a stage one high flow air cleaner that let's more air and minute particles in, no warranty problems. Geese, you guys worry about everything killing your warranty.And would that potentially create a warranty issue?
