Aftermarket air filter element

I'm doing some pre-planning for my 7600 mile service (2015 650 LT) and was looking for a good re-usable air filter (K&N, BMC, OMI, etc) and have not been able to find one specifically for the 650 Versys. Does anyone know of one or will a Ninja filter fit (found lots of those)?

It is my understanding that older model Versys already have the re-usable filter but that the 2015 + uses a paper filter that has to be replaced.

That's too bad Kawi went back to a paper filter. I really like that my 2011 has a clean & reuse one.

That's not a bad price but their web site says a re-map may be required. Didn't see any mention of that with the DNA filter. It's pretty pricey though.

Let us know how the bike runs after, and if a remap is actually required. I don't know much about fuel injected bikes, I just remember the days of having to change jets for certain filters and exhausts.

I don't care what you ride, just ride.

I'm expecting that it won't be required, as the Gen 3s have 'closed-loop' FI, so it should 'self-trim'.

I forgot about that............it does have an o2 sensor and should compensate just like an automobile.

Just checked fitment for my 2010, it does not fit. If you want a freer flowing K&N type filter, Bikemaster is your only choice for a 2015+ 650 model, for earlier models (2007-2014) BMC is your only choice.
