2014 Honda CTX1300 Deluxe
Has anyone installed the K&N Air Cleaner yet? If so, any advice or comments? Here is a link to the part. HA-1302 - K&N Replacement Filters, Replacement Air Filter
You will definitely get the most bang for your buck out of both by installing both. I'm on the fence myself about a PC, so I'm very interested to hear how that turns out for you. :smile:I don't really see any cons to having a K&N filter on the CTX other than you have to disassemble half the bike to get to it. I got mine a couple of days ago and so when I get time and while it seems to rain about an inch and a half every day here I prob won't be riding much if any, so it might be a good time to install it along with my power commander V. I've been holding off so I can do the install on both all at once. I've had several K&N air filters on motorcycles and cars and they have all done better job of filtering than the stock ones that I've replaced. They have a better media in them. As far as maintenance goes it won't have to be serviced for quite a while especially since I won't be riding on dirty/dusty roads. Besides I can clean my K&N for a whole lot cheaper than you can replace the stock air filter element.
If it is listed at a ST1300 replacement or compatible with that bike it WILL fit the CTX1300 which has the same air box, except for ONE difference. Those 2 screws that hold it in the lid. Simple solution is to use the old filter as a guide and drill the holes for the screws in the new filter. I hear ST1300 air filters cost less anyway. If it has a thicker top as some air filters have for the ST, then take one of the screws to the hardware store and get longer screws in stainless. Again, compare the old filter with the new filter to see how much longer. Don't get too much longer or you risk pulling the threaded inserts out of the lid.Just tried to install the K&N 1302 but it isn’t the same as the Honda one , which has 2 screws holding it to the upper air box cover.
It’s listed as a replacement, maybe a mistake ?
I see that.Where the screws would go on the K&N are inset so the filter will deform when tightened .The filter is a lot smaller overall , which will restrict airflow anyway
