Well I hope no one (besides me) had their hopes up for a Sprint filter. I just got a message back from the company, "at the moment Sprint Filters do not make or have any plans to make a filter for this bike. Chris Parsons"


So the search continues for the best available filter.

Hello to all!
On Monday we will have the first sample of our air filters. First sample will be shipped to Brock's Performance to test and then we can start the production!

this is the mold for your Sprint Filer air filter

Welcome aboard Sprint, thanks for listening to us, I cannot wait to try out your product.


As an additional suggestion to our new friends at Sprint, it would be nice if someone there (an engineer perhaps) could shed light on the air requirements for the H2. We have gotten into some pretty heated discussions about the size of the required opening for both the air inlet and the filter size. Some people claim that the H2 can never approach the H2R's performance because of the smaller filter size. Based on industry recommendations for filters, this does make sense. However, both the H2 and the H2R draw their air into the supercharger through a round opening that is approximately square inches. With H2's already making roughly 275 horsepower, how big of a holdup is this?

"Some people claim that the H2 can never approach the H2R's performance because of the smaller filter size."

Zack Milholland, bike owner Chad S, myself and the rest of the proud staff of Brock's Performance will gladly dispute this claim

That said, we are happy to be working with Sprint Filter to bring even faster products to H2 owners.

I have the DNA installed. I'd be very interested in a back to back Dyno comparison for hp/TQ performance but just as interested in information that focuses on which filter/material is better at filtering fine material.

Some interesting info :

I totally agree, for an undersized intake, Chad's bike did okay!

As told by Brock, yes..... the intake and the air filter is very little, too little...
We think that our new air filter could help more this marvellous bike! We have many different solutions and we will sent next week to Brock's to test some prototypes. Then we will decide together best solutions. We think that Brock's Performance is one of best tuner of the World, so you will have the #bestairfilter , as... usual!

In the meanwhile.... we are working also during this Saturday on your air filter!

Did the magazine article give any data on the effectiveness of the various filters at stopping the crap getting through?

This is MUCH more important on an H2 because the supercharger impeller is right after the filter. Grit, or anything else, will erode the rotor tips causing very expensive damage.
