Didn't show

I suspected this tread is a retread, but didn't show any hits on the 'K & N' forum search try. I guess I'll try that button next time. :?

I serviced the K&N air filter at the same time. I had been wanting to check the valve adjustment since I have read a lot of debates here and elsewhere on the filtration of the K & N. I am now satisfied that it does a very good job of filtering harmful media from the intake air. If a lot of contaminates had been passing through, the intake valves would have been TIGHT. The dirt wears the valve seat and face. I have seen this a lot in motorcycles. I worked in a Honda motorcycle dealership service department four years mainly on dirt bikes.
The above quote was from my post at: http://www.insightcentral.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=31398&highlight=#31398

The K & N had been installed by the previous owner at 65,000 miles.
I am NOT AT ALL AFRAID of using the K & N.

I used a K&N filter in my 2001 CVT Insight for about a year and didn't notice any improvements in fuel mileage. It only had slightly improved wide open throttle response. So I finally went back to the OEM filter.
