Yes, I agree that Hiflofiltro’s name choice could cause them problems among potential customers that don’t do their homework.It's perhaps unfortunate that the specific brand, Hiflofiltro is evidently confused with the generic term "high flow" ... But one could always search for the Hiflofiltro website if they were confuddled ; }
Understood. This thread is about paper element HiFlo filters made by Hiflofiltro. Your post said “Hi Flo is junk food“ using capital letters, so naturally we could assume you were talking about the same product, but apparently you were not. Oil impregnated washable filters are a different product.I'm simply referring to the oil impregnated washable filters; not any specific brand of this type.
These pass more air and dirt for a given surface area; end of story.
I put one on an 82 CB750F. It leaned out so badly the bike would fall flat on its' face w/any throttle setting above idle.
Carb equipped engines run best w/OEM intake(filter)/exhaust systems. FI eliminates that problem.
No damage proven is, well, improbable. But proven test results would be better, wouldn't you agree? If contaminants passing by the filter is the winning metric, then the K&N wins big!K&N replacement filters are safe and sure ! No damage has ever been proven by the use of a K&N REPLACEMENT air filter properly installed in a stock air box. I have used K&N for the last 50 years never had any issue nore have I ever been told by another rider that a replacement filter cause damage ,note I repeat replacement not change to airbox.
No, I wouldn’t use NAPA oil in my car because it’s way overpriced. I usually buy Citgo oil with a rebate. I try not to spend much over $1/quart for car oil. Oil is oil as long as it meets the specs called for in the owner’s manual. I buy on price and don’t give a hoot about the brand. Big names and pretty oil bottles don’t impress me. My engines last as long as I care to own them, and I sleep well at night.NAPA brand oil is not made by NAPA. Its made by Valvoline, I think. Valvoline I think has good reputation. Would you use NAPA oil in your car?
Why not? AND if you say it is bad oil, if it had destroyed so many engines by now, wouldn't it be off the shelf and not available any longer, and possibly have a law suit against it??????
