Will increase air flow much more so than stock.
BMC are also worth looking at

The K&N air filters are re-washable and should last the lifetime of the bike, I have been told by the father in law that depending on what bike you have, you can get anywhere between 3 - 10 bhp if you fit one!!

You will probable need to adjust the fuel-air mixture with one of these fitted... otherwise it might run rough!

3 to 10 HP?!

Never on a R125. Not even if you filled up with rocket fuel. ;)

Just so you know josh, you can get the K&N Panel Air Filter and the K&N Oil Filter together including postage to your door for £40! :D

Bargain! That's what I'm getting this week or next. Heres the link: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Yamaha-20...97?pt=UK_Motorcycle_Parts&hash=item46097519dd

With the K&N air filter, you don't have to clean it and re-grease it until I think it is 50,000/100,000 miles. I've got the recharge kit for mine and it says I don't need to use it until then.

That's true. The oil lasts 50,000 miles. And the filter over all has a lifetime warranty or a million miles!

Perhaps bikerboy is re-oiling his everytime he services because he washes the filter?

But if you go with K&N's service procedure, you don't need to wash it till 50,000 miles. :D
