velocity air filter

08 teryx with a velocity air filter. No other mods except spark arrester removed and hotter iridium plugs. Does it need to be rejetted? Seems to run fine But no long rides yet.
Thanks
CRAB

Nope your good. No filter will change the jetting and no filter will add or take away performance on this engine.

We run and only recommend the UNI brand for catching the dirt though.

Yea I pretty much ride the same terrain as you, minus the mud also. I may try that LTI airr filter setup that requires no drilling. I saw it at the show and thought it looked pretty cool

a stock or mild mod motor gets all the air it needs. Just opening the air box doesn't actually get any additional airflow into the motor. the throttle bodies can get plenty through that stock box. choose your filter for the filtration qualities and forget about flow until you start getting some big engine mods.

didnt order filter for H.P. ordered it because stock filter sucks.mine being a 08. i just wanted to make sure i would get a lean condition because this filter moves more air than the stock one. just didnt want a nice hole in my piston thats all.all my previous toys where fuel injected some carbs ar new to me. plugs from get go where black and nasty. so i presume it ran rich from the get go. now after a short ride the plugs are cleaning off and the ceramic is turning brown,.. so if i read how to read plugs right i should be good..
thanks all

The UNI is good for all, look at our billet adapter with clamp on UNI filter for the best protection and make sure you oil the foam good.

As for the lean, I guess I didn't explain myself well, sorry. No matter what filter you use in a stock motor it is not going to flow anymore air.

The filter might on a flow bench but not on this engine. The engine will flow exactly what it will flow with any or no filter on it.

So no jet change needed.
