Sprint P08-F185 Filter 3000 mile report.

So today I cleaned the Sprint P08-F185 filter after 3000 miles on Nevada/Calif roads. Our roads have been covered with sand and Nevada is a dusty dirty place anyway. The sand gets ground up into a fine silt and air filters take a beating. So opening up the filter box there is the normal oil from the crankcase and the dirty side of the filter is a mess, the dirt is pretty caked on and there was more than I expected. Took off the filter and the clean side was stunningly clean. I could not detect the slightest bit of dirt/grit with clean hands. I wiped with a white paper towel and it was the color of the oil. No detectable dirt.

I couldn't be happier with that filter.

I was getting a bit of oil build up, then realized the drain hole for any oil has a sealed catch plug that had filled. The bike has 14,000 miles so that would be pretty normal.
Any question about that filter in my mind has totally been answered.

do you notice any performance difference from stock? If so in what ways? Thanks

I had a very noticeable performance difference. A real seat of the pants difference. The stock filter is highly restrictive. Remember I have the P08-F185 that breathes extraordinarily well and it is waterproof. Also the Sprint uses all the available area, where the OEM and the K&N do not, they have rubber and plastic where there could be filter. The sprint uses every bit of the area available.

When I got it, I first went and rode the bike up Virginia City highway to get a feel for the stock filter, came home changed the filter and went the exact same road and it was really different, especially above 10k.

Ryan you may want to reconsider the P08.

"An independent testing carried out by University of Wales Trinity St David, Sprint Filter's P08 polyester tissue, the "standard" tissue found in Sprint Filter replacement air filters, provided the best airflow of any leading brand filter, including leading brand "race" filters. By comparison, Sprint Filter P08F1-85 provides almost three times the airflow of P08 with virtually the same filtration performance, which makes P08F1-85 suitable even for road use as well as race." ..."The Sprint Filter polyester air filters retain 93.13% of 100 μ particles (Sprint Filter P08 air filter) - 91.8% of 37 μ particles (Sprint Filter P037 air filter) - 95.22% of 100 μ particles (Sprint Filter P08F1-85 air filter) versus the 76.42% of 4-layer oil-soaked cotton"
And remember, the H2 splashes the air filter with oil (from the crankcase breather) and that oil traps the very fine particles of dirt.

And you get to hear the whine of the supercharger much more clearly in the front of the bike at idle

On mine there was a huge difference in the sound volume of the SC. Which is a good thing. The chirping is really loud.
