BMC Air Filters

BMC
RACE air  filter system

FIB-25619R2

$129.95 USD
(Yes,
that's 2 air filters)

1. Choose your shipping method
Will add ~1-2hp True HP at high rpm when EFI properly tuned.
Filter is similar to other brands of cotton gauze and screen aftermarket filters, but, the RACE filter requires tuning and the STREET (below) shouldn't require retuning.
However, even a stock bike with a stock air filter will run better with the fuel injection remapped....

1. Choose your shipping method
Will add ~1hp at high rpm when properly jetted  and will "clean up" low-end richness when fully warmed upon stock carbureted bike otherwise.

ZX12 information:

Muzzy ZX12 exhaust system (as of Jan 1, 2002):
Must use some sort of aftermarket EFI mapping device with this system. With this exhaust, the lowend mapping is extremely important to dial in - otherwise, low rpm, as in "in-town driving" is poor.
Properly tuned, the Muzzy delivers very good power - better than many others.
The 4 gas EC997 dynamometer systems are the preferred method of tuning - as they can tune by engine smoothness - in addition to realtime HP and torque readouts.
Tuning an aftermarket FI "modifier" box on a dyno using an O2 (oxygen) sensor to guess at an "A/F Ratio" is totally misleading - not uncommonly resulting in  FI settings that can be 3 to 6 True HP less than potential best power. That especially includes "autotuned" power commanders. I just talked to a guy who spent 3 hours "autotuning" his racebike - only to have it still have problems at high rpm/part throttle (as in entering a corner / maintaining speed on racetrack).
Heck, in 3 hours, we could have properly tuned both fuel and ignition maps for best power AND smoothness manually!
Best to tune for power - not a fictitious "A/F Ratio"...........
If you hear someone say that "It didn't make any more power, but it's got a better fuel curve." Run away fast! That makes no sense - if the fuel rate was better - it would make more power.
Gee - am I the only one who knows that???? I hope not!

 Power Commander 3 and 3r and autotuning:
Oddly, (in direct clash with "autotuning salespeoples' claims) when measured under load, it is starting to be a trend that, even with the same fuel delivery rate - i.e. with pc map = zero map, the power output above 7k/100% throttle seems to degrade WITH the pc3 simply installed and that "autotuning" isn't tuning for optimum power....
Hmmm.....
One bike (Keith H. ~01/01/02), auto "tuned" in Florida by a "Power Commander Center", went from 150.3 peak to 156.6 peak when properly tuned for power - not, as it was - autotuned by residual oxygen values in the exhaust.
Retuned the pc3 for realtime power. Gained over 6 True HP at peak. Interesting. Yet, just another bad showing for o2 based autotuning schemes.
But a lot of us tuners already knew that residual exhaust oxygen tuning was not very optimal for power.

The other zx12 (Lawrence P. - 02/09/02), with a pc3r starting with the installed "zero" map maxed out at 138.4 True HP - after adjusting fuel for best power. Removed the pc3. Peak power jumped up to 145.7 True HP with no fuel changes.
The simple installation of the pc3 with a power optimized fuel map lost 5-6 over a stock, unmapped ECU?
Looks like something's wrong. And it ain't the EC997 dyno! They read the same every day.
Oh my, oh my, whatever will they do when they show that their optimum "A/F Ratio" does not equal best power or best 1/4 mile?????
Stay tuned.
TEKA EMS and the EC997 dynos will not have those pc3 and auto "tuning" scheme problems.

I've been taking my y2000 ZX12 1427 to Dynojet shops for 5 years. A total crapshoot on hp/tq. REAL difficult to tell the difference that mods make.

Even worse, I lost 2 motors on the Dynojet dynos due to????
It got so that every sweep I crossed my fingers, prayed to every god I could think of.

Last Nov. I started going to
Houston's Metric MC's EC997 Factory Pro dyno. What a difference.
The numbers are very consistent, predictable.
Maybe because the operator/owner (Andy) is religious about getting motor temps "right" before doing a session?
Maybe because the Factory Pro is just a better piece of equipment/system/method???

Best of all, although I can't prove it, the steady load seems MUCH, MUCH easier on the motor.
We are tuning my NA motor for the Texas Mile and during Jan/Feb have done 5 dyno days (3 with different cams, 2 with different injectors). No motor problems.
Holding the motor at 11,500 for 4-5 sec? It seems to love it. I no longer cringe.

Hp difference between DJ250 and Factory Pro? In the range of 15-20% Hard to tell exactly because DJ numbers varied 5-10%.

thumbs up to Marc & Factory Pro!

thumbs up to Andy of Metric!

The extension of the laboratory for engines of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology was completed in about 1935. Its architect was Rudolf Otto Salvisberg (1882-1940). He had a successful career in Berlin but returned to Switzerland after the advent of the Nazis. His architectural style was somewhat similar to that of Erich Mendelsohn. The staircase of the laboratory is in normal use but well preserved.
