Preventing dust, dirt and other particles from entering the engine.
By preventing dust, dirt and other particles from entering the engine, the air filter performs one of the most important jobs on every Yamaha.
Although aftermarket air filters can often look quite similar to the Genuine Yamaha item, they are in fact very different. Using the incorrect part can reduce power output and even cause premature engine wear, making it even more important to order Genuine Parts through your knowledgeable Yamaha Official dealer.
Each Genuine Yamaha air filter has been designed to deliver the correct flow rate to match your engine’s power, cc, valve design and fuelling system. Yamaha Genuine air filters are designed to prevent dust from entering the engine while at the same time maintaining high levels of airflow - unlike some aftermarket products that can clog easily or give reduced filter performance.
Although it’s hidden out of sight, your filter provides the clean air that keeps your Yamaha alive. So next time it’s due to be replaced, make sure that you fit a Genuine Yamaha air filter that’s not only right for your model, but also designed to operate efficiently in your part of the world.
