K&N Engineering Press Release:

There has been a shift in the motorcycle cruiser market over the last few years. Motorcycle manufacturers, like the Yamaha Star Motorcycles division, have taken notice of the growing number of younger motorcyclists seeking stylish, fun-to-ride, middle weight cruiser motorcycles. For 2014 the Star Motorcycle division of Yamaha Motor U.S.A has thrown a wrench in the works of their competitors with the 2014 Yamaha Star XVS950 Bolt and XVS950R Bolt R-Spec motorcycles.

The new K&N reusable air filter for 2014 Yamaha Star XV950 Bolt and XV950R Bolt R-Spec models are designed to fit inside the stock air filter box, also referred to as an air cleaner.

A K&N high-flow replacement air filter is different from stock in that K&N uses cotton gauze filter media woven to exacting specifications. Cotton, by nature, is more breathable than the paper or foam media used for most motorcycle air filters. Since an internal combustion engine is essentially an air pump, getting more air into your engine can increase performance, acceleration, and throttle response.

Some might be worried that an increase in airflow comes at the expense of filtration efficiency and engine protection. To put minds at ease K&N performs filtration efficiency testing following the internationally recognized ISO 5011 protocol to guarantee that our air filters will provide high airflow without sacrificing engine protection.

Perhaps more exciting than the increased performance that comes with a K&N high-flow replacement air filter is that they are also washable and reusable. The advantage of a washable air filter is that it will pay for itself over time.

The K&N 2014 Yamaha Star Bolt Performance Air Filters are backed by the industry leading K&N Million Mile Limited Warranty. This means that 2014 Yamaha Bolt owners can enjoy a lifetime of increased performance, reusability, and long air filter service intervals.
