K&N vs. Green Filter

So I have been running K&N air filter for years without even thinking about it. A couple days ago a friend recommended a new filter called Green Filter air filters. So I want everyone opinions on it. Below are the links to K&N Filters and Green Filters. Let me know your thoughts and opinions.

Great marketing campaign. Not enough information to determine cost/benefit.

67RSSS......owned since 69. A basket case for most of it.

Re: K&N vs. Green Filter

Since the green filters screens are made of steel, won't they rust?

And the fibers breaking down - you probably have more fibers going through your motor when you take your carb off and stuff a rag in there - I think they are reaching

Re: K&N vs. Green Filter

I have heard they flow more CFM and are lest restrictive but the fit & finish rank at the lowest of other air filters.

Re: K&N vs. Green Filter

Ok, so I contacted the company yesterday and found out the make the filter frame out of stainless steel to prevent rusting. Also attached is a comparison chart that was posted on another forum.

Re: K&N vs. Green Filter

Not sure about “Green filters”, but if you’re shopping filters take a look at R2C, they are really well made, flow well and no oil. They are designed for dirt track use.
I’ve been using one for a few years now with good results.
Just an option.
