Technical Information

BMC air filters are designed and produced to ensure a higher air flow than original paper filters. In F1, for example, BMC cotton filters minimize the loss of air flow pressure passing through the air filter; this way ensures the best conditions for full exploitation of maximum power. Therefore the benefits of replacing the original paper filter with BMC cotton air filter, produced using the same technology and materials as the F1 air filters, are evident.

Design and Materials:
Qualified engineers using advanced software and expert technicians using the latest technologies produce BMC air filters. An F1 filter must be very light, must be made of the best raw materials and must improve performance. For this reason we use only alloy mesh with epoxy coating to ensure protection from petrol fumes and from oxidization due to the humidity of the air. The filtering material is composed of a special cotton gauze soaked with low-viscosity oil to give you the best air permeability.

Advanced Technology:
BMC technical staff has developed a particular production system based on soft rubber moulding which produces the familiar BMC red filters. They are made in one single piece with no welded joints in the corners, thus avoiding breaking risks. This system, called "Full Moulding" comes from R&D in F1 and it is significant of BMC air filters' technical and quality specifics.

Horrible Fit!!!
  • Currently 2/5 Stars

The dimensions of this filter are not an exact match of the OEM. I had to shave/sand off some of the molding that houses the filter element to get it to fit in the hole of the air box. I only gave it 2 stars because I was finally able to get it to fit. If it wasn't for the fact that I had to completely remove my fuel tank, I would have just sent it back but I had already invested a lot of time in the job so I wanted it done. I should have stuck with K&N. Ive had positive experiences with them.
