Good reading:

Is there anyone who has a part number on the mentioned KN filter ?

Breathing is another area – air in and air out. The standard RZ intake system is a complicated system of plastic mouldings, beginning with the air filter itself which is located in a box between the top frame rails, then working its way to the side-mounted carburettors through a series of chambers. On Peter’s RZ, spanner-man Dudley Lister, who has a motorcycle business in Wyong on the NSW Central Coast and is a veteran of numerous race teams of the ‘70s and ‘80s, has dispensed with this system and replaced it with a pair of K&N filters of Harley-Davidson specification, which fit (just) inside the fairing and don’t look out of place at all. From the moment the RZ/RD first appeared, expansion chamber makers enjoyed a boom market, constructing lighter and more efficient methods of dispelling the burnt gases. On Peter’s bike, the pipes are made by the English firm Jim Lomas, with both lower pipes exiting on the right side, as on the GP bikes. The top pipes no longer cross over themselves, but still terminate through the neat standard cowling that also houses the tail light.

Contact Bill Wilson. He makes a kit using these filters.

I have them on my bike.
