Looking for direct Baron replacement filters but K & N
« on: Mar 23, 2021, 10:44:10 am »
Hey-

Long time not post.

Last time I needed to replace the filters on my Baron's BAK, I reached out to Baron and ordered the same custom filters.  (very pricey).  I'd like to replace them with some K&Ns.  Anyone found any direct fit replacement K&Ns that will fit the Baron's filter plates?  Or am I better off just ditching those plates and finding some filters that will attach directly to the the throttle body tubes?  If so, what part number are you using?

Thanks

    I used 2" pods from eBay - clamped directly on the throttle bodies.  Search on 2" pod filters

    So the throttle bodies are 2" O.D.?  I would have measured myself, but the bike is in the shop at the moment.

    I bet I can find some K&Ns to go directly on then. Thanks!

      Yep 2" (50.8mm).  A lot of people use these K&N filters.  They have 2 different numbers for the same filter, only difference is the RU filter has a rubber top and the RC has a metal top.

      Boom! There it is.  Thanks man!  Yep I'll do that and just hold onto the Baron's plates in case I feel like going back to those in the future.

      Just ordered a pair of these filters, some more 3/8" hose, and all the fittings needed.
