    Although it looks like a pain in the but to remove I kinda like the setup.It does away with airbox tubes

    Hi guy's , must be limited to the market over here and really quite rare , can't find any info or part numbers in any manual . Will just need to keep looking or convert to pods ..

    Sounds to me like someone might have used one from Maxim or Seca on it. They take a rectangular paper filter thgat retains with a metal spring clip and then has three screws on the side to change it.

    Yeah, thought it might be from a seca / maxim but the filters they use are more square ! These are very slim , think they are for the german market only .
    The search goes on .

    You could always throw all that crap away and get an ru-2970 by K&N.

    Hi pork chop , looks like k&n's is the way forward as the correct one's are £70 from Germany . Will need to cut the air box to get it out .

    I know it's late. But I recently got my airfilters of my bike. And I have exactly the same as yours. My replacement that I ordered doesn't fit..
    so probably have to go for another solution as well..
