950 Adventure air filter

My dealer wants $50.42 for an OEM air filter

Does Hi-Flo or someone make an an aftermarket air filter for the 950 Adv. that is a little more reasonable in price?

Where do I look?

Ought to change your question

You need to find a different dealer. Mine charged me far less for OEM filter.

No doubt.

Found out HiFloFiltro doesn't make air filters for the 950 Adv. anymore. So, they're out.

I found some filters made by DNA? Anyone know about DNA filters? They sound promising.

I'm surprised TBH. It sounds about right after shipping. I think I paid $40 from ktm-twins before shipping and ~$45 in total (and ktm-twins are very reasonably priced).

I run a DNA. Pretty pricey were I bought it but at least it's reusable. With the filter, sommers mod and the snorkel off I picked up about 3hp on low end .

I'd be more forthcoming but my dealer is very supportive of those who bought their bikes from him and may not want to make the same discounts. But even at that he's very reasonable.

$38.96 from Munn racing, plus shipping. I order all my service stuff at once to save on shipping.

If you're ordering something form your dealer that he doesn't have in stock, I'd ask for 15% off. If you're going to pre-pay for an order, wait for them to do their weekly order, wiat for shipping, make a 2nd trip to go pick it up and pay sales tax, the least they should do is match mail order pricing.

If they make the effort and spend the money to stock the things I need, I feel better about supporting them and won't balk about paying list on most things.

Just went through this question. I think list price is about 48 bucks. K and N doesn't make one for the Adventure but is going to make one for the Sport bike. That way they can sell 50 filters instead of 5000. Go figure.

I've got a K&N filter for the adventure upstairs in a cupboard

Cheap bastard saves money by...

running a Pre-Filter.

This makes my stock paper units last at least twice as long...

It has already paid for itself!

Betcha don't unless you work for K&N and have a prototype... but DNA looks exactly like a K&N would.

I have the original DNA filter, very average fit, but has since been superseeded to what I understand is a better fit.


For: KTM - LC8 950 Adventure 03'-09'
Part ID: P-KT9E03-02 (use this code when ordering)
The P-KT9E03-02 DNA filter features a NEW DESIGN and replaces the discontinued P-KT9E03-01. The new filter is designed to fit the KTM carbureted LC8 950 models.

The DNA is exactly like the K&N, except it's blue. I have one, but I hate all K&N style filters for their poor filtering of the fine stuff. The solution was to place a sheet style foam UNI filter on top of the DNA. Sort of a post filter. No dirty airbox anymore.

I have one of the first pre-filters. It's a bit restrictive due to the intake hole size being smaller then the snorkel. My 950 is jetted spot on (according to plug readings) and the pre-filter makes it run rich. Not wanting to mess with the jetting, I went back to the snorkle.

If you bike is factory lean (or you get the H2W jet kit, or you have EFI), then the pre-filter seems to be the trick.
