Cheapest airfilter?

Postby AndersH » Mon Jun 25, 2012 9:30 pm

Hi Guys

What is the cheapest decent air filter on the market? I'm unemployed at the moment and can't afford most of the air filters that have to be ordered outside of the EU, because of very expensive import tax rules in Denmark.

So the best would be an airfilter from inside the EU, and best price/performance.

At the moment the CPR Rottweiler is the best value airfilter, as far as I can see.. But it will still become expensive when it arrives in Denmark, due to our weird rules. It will be about twice the price on their website.

Any recommendations?

Thanks in regards
Anders

If you are not afraid to do some DIY stuff, please consider combination of this work:
http://www.ktmsmt.com/viewtopic.php?f=1 ... 250#p14239
with one of these pieces:
http://www.merlinmotorsport.co.uk/ITG-A ... index.html

By the way, do anyone know exact inside measures of stock air filter housing (I mean grey base plate on first link)??

If length allow, one of these sausage sets will be an extremely elegant solution with its 379mm length and almost full coverage of the base plate:

How does it sounds?

CPR is really good and they also put a lower price on the invoice if you want :wink: Helpful lot they are.
Do you also pay heaps for importing "used" parts otherwise get them to unpack it and make it look a bit used before mailing to you.
Another option is to get them to mail it to a friend /member in holland and go for a ride/ drive.
Or a visit to the states maybe, you or a friend... maybe, just saying...

Thanks a lot for that Ebay link! It will save me over 100 euro that way, and also a lot of time etc!

I will go out for that filter, even though it costs 20% of all the money I get this month.. it sucks being unemployed :D

Yes I get about 1100GBP each month because I payed for some type of "unemployment insurrance" while I worked.
If you don't payed to that system, you would not get as much. As far as I remember, people without only get 623 GBP every month, and you can't own anything that's more expensive than 1075 GBP. So If you own a car or a motorcycle, a nice HIFI stereo etc.. you will have to sell those before you can recieve the benefits.

Denmark is a lot more expensive to live in, compared to most countries. Rent, food, fuel, insurrance, etc is more expensive than most other places. That's why we have to get what you might think it "a lot of money". :-) (the Superduke was 24955,90 GBP from new in Denmark, the R model was about 27k)

Its going OT, and not that it concerns me a much, but in Estonia which is also EU with relatively the same prices as they are in EU everywhere - the average salary is about 623GBP, before taxes :) I understand your point 100%, Denmark have possibly cheapest car park in Europe because of the taxes. Whole world is set up in a way that 90-95% of population do not leave anything over after running expenses and taxes, no matter of incomes. However bigger numbers leave you more room to play anyway, if you are smart ;)

Concerning taxes there is a general story: For example Danish prime minister says: "Until they pay the taxes and our social system is secured, i do not care what they do with the rest of their money." Estonian prime minister says almost the same: "Until they pay taxes and our social system is secured, i do not care where they get rest of their money." :mrgreen:

haha :-)

You are right.. And to others reading this, the reason why this:

"I understand your point 100%, Denmark have possibly cheapest car park in Europe because of the taxes."

is correct, it is because we have some of the cheapest cars in the world, BEFORE taxes, but some of the most expensive after the taxes :)

£40 incl. express overnight delivery.

Kept the K&N to stop the stacks rattling on the intakes and to give some weather protection, with the OE lower part of the airbox, to the throttle body - will be replaced with a flat plate as soon as.

Did not need to slit cut the MR-013s, as Viking did, as they slipped over the stacks fairly easily.

Not pretty but makes all the right noises and seems to work well with Joker's map.

About 100 miles today and seems to be working well with Joker's/Jocke's map - still have little glitches at certain rpm/throttle openings but much less pronounced than with the OE airbox and they might be coincident with the very particular fuelling peaks of Joker's map compared to the Akra map, gummy injectors as mentioned in another thread or something else unrelated to the map - will now try the Akra map, though, for comparison. Seat of the pants dyno = big improvement in power, smoothness, throttle response, etc and none of the problems that Viking had with initial poor running after fitting the pods, possibly 'cos mines an SDR not SD and/or the map.

Given the lack of dyno and custom map for the moment, happy to recommend the pods as a cheap as chips alternative to the OE box - only downside is the 'clucky' intake noise at initial low rpm but I had that with both my Duke II and 525 EXC airbox mods.
