I thought with the K&N it should perform better.
When I removed the K&N filter I did notice some red filter oil drops on the mesh screen.
The only thing I can think of is that there is too much K&N red oil on the filter, but I'm not sure if that would cause the misfiring.
I tried the K&N air filter, and the bike ran terrible
. I went back to the stock one, and all was good.
