I have a SE air filter and have an concern. Where the air filter fits over the rubber crankcase breathers it looks like there could be a slight airleak. Does anyone put rim grease or anything on the back side of the filter to keep any air from leaking around the filter especially over the breathers? I'm new to the vtwin world but have some no toil rim grease that i could use from my MX days.:beer4u:

I know my K&N is a little flexible, did you try to bend it a little to make it snug? I am not familiar with rim grease, just wonder if it would get sucked in, not sure...

No grease on mine but a thin coat of dielectric grease wouldn't hurt.
