Red face Help...Getting Spiked!!!!

I'd like a Chrome Spike Air Filter with adapter. How is the Low & Mean (USA Made) with the adapter kit?
What's better without exceeding $ 500.00.

I got mine through a search on e-bay of "D&M Spike" and got one for a steal! They are really D&M spikes but for some reason sold cheaper on e-bay through one of their divisions.

I actuallyl called D&M and spoke to them about it. They are great. Adapter is needed (Accutronix or L&M)

.....if it appears like I have given advice please disregard and notify me immediately

You have different options on what adapter to use, I have the L&M but there are a couple of others that are cheaper, the L&M one was $180 plus the cost of the spike, which mine was like $100 but you can find them cheaper. I bought mine on eBay. I know I really wasn't any help but if you are wanting an L&M adapter you know where to get that and if you need help finding a spike just let us know.

How often do you have to change the filters; miles / months?

Mine has a washable filter and I cleaned it once a year! Really didn't get that dirty.

Mine came with a filter that looks like a K&N but it doesn't have any stamps on it like I would imagine a K&N would, but I use a K&N filter cleaning kit on it that cleans the filter and has oil in it (think it was $12 and I have used it a few times and still got some more uses left). I usually clean it when I notice it looks dirty or after riding in a good rain storm.

D2Moto I believe is another pretty cheap place to find spike intakes, you have lots of choices based on what you want to spend and what design you like.

Do you have a custom exhaust or stock? If you have custom exhaust and then put an aftermarket air intake then you'll need a fuel controller, at least it's highly suggested, could put it on and see how the bike runs but it will definitely run better with a fc, better throttle response and better mileage.

You can purchase an internal rain sock for most spikes and that will help keep the filter clean as well as moisture out of the throttle body.

I ran mine all summer (5000 miles) and it still looks very clean. Keep in mind that most of my riding is out on the highway and I try and dodge bugs as much as I can!

If everything seems to be under control
You're not going fast enough!
