I have a K&N air filter in my Grizz!

Is there a special air box part I can buy to help the air filter seal better?

I just want to make sure it seals off real good!

It's call the K&N Pro Flow Kit but it won't work with a K&N air filter!

That's crazy!

It must work with the stock air filter then!

there are 2 types of K&N filters for the Grizz

one that utilizes the factory setup,basically a replacement for the factory filter,which is a bad design by Yamaha as it fits sloppy

the second (Pro Flow),changes the intire way the filter is attatched,,,by way of a differant style of a filter that clamps to a Flange that bolts to your airbox,and has a "O" ring seal,,,it also has a outerwares that slips over the filter

I have just the K&N air filter.

Is there any way I can just buy the flange for my airbox to get a better seal.

I'll probably have to buy the entire kit for $180.00

That would suck!

I would have 2 K&N air filters for my Grizz!

They also let you just buy the adapter on that website for $64. But its worth it just order it with another filter IMO. That way when ones dirty you can just install the other one and be ready to go and then clean it when you got time. Nothiing wrong with spares.

There is an alternative to the PRO Flow and that is to search in your local hardware store for a PVC 3" flange. You can modify and install this flange in the same fashion as the PRO FLOW flange for the total cost of under $5 for the flange then buy your choice of filter and you will have no more than $40 into the project.

Use a flange, either a Pro Design or DKNARND's home made one and get the filter that clamps on. The stock design is bad and the K&N filter made for the stock design is even worse. Although you are probably getting real good air flow with your current set up.

I'll just buy the Pro Design Filter Flow Kit! $90.00 It's well worth it!

I'll sell the K&N Filter on Ebay that I have on my Grizzly!

I should have never bought that K&N type of filter.

It's a bad design, it don't seal very well and don't let much more flow than the stock air filter does.

The stock air filter fits and seals better!

I just took the K&N air filter off and put the stock air filter back on.

I will buy the Pro Design Pro Filter Kit later on!

That's what these forums are good for, passing on information. You are not the first ones to find out the hard way that a product you bought is not necessarily the best way to go.

It's well worth the money even if you lose a little bit with the other K&N.

Yes I know now!

When you're trying to filter air from a $5,000 Engine!

It's worth it to get the $90.00 Pro Design Kit!
