Hi everyone! I just ordered a complete DynoJet kit for my Rincon. Anybody have any advice or shortcuts that I should know when putting it together? Also, I've heard so many different opinions on the K&N filter replacement over the stock foam filter. Some say the K&N lets too much dirt in and its better to stay with stock or an aftermarket foam filter. Any suggestions are appreciated. Here in Louisiana, there's more water and mud to worry about than dust, but I'd like to tune it to the best I can. Suggestions on an aftermarket exhaust would be nice too! Thanks!!

Karl,

Here is a good write-up on doing the change.

The UNI filter appears to be a good aftermarket filter, similar to the K&N with a prefilter. I bought my jet kit, filter and filter oil from rockymountainatv.com

Thanks Greg! Someone else had mentioned the UNI filter and said it was actually better than the K&N. I've been a loyal K&N user, but maybe its time for a change. Any advice on an aftermarket exhaust for increased horsepower?

Karl,
I have the K&N filter with the pre-filter and there shouldn't any problem with dirt. Read the warranty on the K&N. I seriously doubt that they would have remained in business, or vehicle warranties voided, if they didn't perform properly. UNI may be, and is probably good, but I don't think you can go wrong with either.

Thanks John! The local Honda shop here strongly suggests the Uni-filter...saying that it is better, especially in a dusty enviroment. I have a K&N cold air intake on my Jeep and it has been working just fine. The K&N on my Harley Road King and Firebird have also performed flawlessly. Maybe its due the Honda shop's difficulty in obtaining the K&N kits or maybe they don't make as good a profit. As far as preferences with other owners of Rincons in this area, it's about 50-50. K&N is a proven performer with me, so I'll probably end up getting one of those.

K&N is one of the best, if not the best, flowing filters there is. But, it doesn't seem to filter the really dirty situations as well as the others (foam) filters do. It does alright for me, but I have a prefilter on also.

Thanks YellowRincon! It seems as though the K&N is the way I'll go. The "pre-filter" your talking about...is that the nylon that wraps around the filter itself? If it's what I'm thinking about, I've seen them on motorcycles that have exposed K&N type filters. It also makes them somewhat water-resistant.
