The YZF R6 was the world's first 600cc stock production motorcycle with a four-stroke engine that could produce more than 100 horsepower. Owners looking for a performance accessory to build on the stock performance of this sport bike can find it with K&N. K&N designed a high flow replacement air filter, part number YA-6008, for 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 Yamaha YZF-R6 motorcycles.

This performance air filter is designed to provide high airflow, increased horsepower and acceleration while providing engine protection. It is custom made for the YZF R6 and like all K&N performance air filters it is washable and reusable.

The YA-6008 is shaped with a urethane molded frame for a proper seal and extra long life. This pre-oiled air filter will fit directly inside your OE air box assembly. Simply remove the stock air filter and install the K&N air filter into the stock air box.

There are three clips on the air filter that will slide into place into the air filter cavity in the air box. Our K&N air filter will only fit into the air box one way. Do not remove the air filter o-ring in the air box. Once you apply pressure, the K&N motorcycle air filter will snap into place. Use the stock screws to secure the K&N air filter to the air box. The center screw on the air box lid holds the air box lid and air filter into place.

K&N’s YA-6008 is covered by K&N’s famous Million Mile Limited Warranty and will be the last air filter your Yamaha will ever need.

For 2008 to 2016 Yamaha YZF-R6 motorcycles used only in pavement racing environments, K&N offers its two-ply cotton media replacement air filter, part number YA-6008R for less restriction and increased horsepower and acceleration.
