Yeah, but there is a few millimetre gap between the top and bottom parts of the airbox, so the clips are causing the plastic to bend, and there is more stress on these components. Just wondered if anyone else had achieved a better fit.
Just fitted my K&N filter and it's a very tight fit also. The clips were hard to close and the plastic where the clips are is certainly bending down. I have checked the actual filter and it is fitting correctly.
Surely there must be others with K12's that have fitted this K&N ?
Any more feedback.
I'll let you know if mine stays put (and does not pop out, as I've noticed a
slight tap on the clips make them pop out! ).
Yeah, it's been a week and prob done over 100 miles with no probs at all. think it has just sort of bedded itself in now. Don't want to damage the airbox. At least the filter - 'box seal is super tight!
Yes, Sonic, the filter is the same size.
K&N instructions state that their filter will fit tighter due to
the fact that their rubber/foam rim is a much tougher substance and
does not compress very easily.
I'll see if K&N reply to my pic I sent them.
na havent got any pics but the induction pipe is secured with a screw on top and draft excluding foam lol the stuff you put round doors or windows and is fixed to the bottom grill with zip ties which come with the k&n pipe 10 quid on e bay
