The 2017 GSX-R1000 and higher-spec GSX-R1000R are the latest and greatest incarnations of the legendary GSX-R sportbike line.

The 2017 machine is currently proving itself on the gruelling MotoAmerica Superbike race circuit in the capable hands of K&N-sponsored Yoshimura Suzuki racers Toni Elias and Roger Hayden. On the public roads around the world, the all new flagship GSX-R is defending its title as the king of superbikes.

There may not be a motorsports segment that is more passionate about squeezing every ounce of performance out of a machine than the sportbike community. That is exactly what both the K&N
SU-1017 direct replacement air filter and the race-specific K&N SU-1017R are designed to do.

The SU-1017 is designed for road use, with no engine mapping or fuel management modifications needed to benefit from the increase in airflow to the GSX-R’s thirsty inline 4-cylinder powerplant. The SU-1017 is the smart performance choice for everyday riders.



Performance is taken to the next level with the race and track use only SU-1017R. Designed with a reduced amount of filtration media for the ultimate in airflow. Unlike the SU-1017, the ultra-high performance SU-1017R race filter will require fuel management modifications.




K&N Protection for the GSX-R
K&N’s legendary oiled, cotton gauze filter media is used in both the SU-1017 and the SU-1017R. However, whereas the SU-1017 uses several layers of the dirt grabbing material, the SU-1017R uses only two and is only recommended for use on the track.
For full engine protection and longevity, the SU-1017 is the obvious choice. Its base seal and sealing bead ensure a secure fit in the stock GSX-R air box and those multiple layers of cotton gauze have an estimated dirt holding capacity of over 70 grams. In the same K&N testing that garnered that impressive statistic, the SU-1017 showed an estimated overall filtration efficiency of over 98%.
Of course, the SU-1017R is a different story as its design goal is heavily weighted toward the performance end of the spectrum. The two layers of filter media will perform to the protection standards expected on the racetrack.

Care and Installation
The K&N GSX-R filters are designed to install in the O.E. air box with a secure and reliable fit. No intake compartment modifications are needed. As stated before, the SU-1017R will require engine management modifications for its intended closed-course use.
Both the SU-1017 and SU-1017R come pre-oiled and ready to install straight out of the box. When the time comes to clean the filters, both models are fully washable and rechargeable using a K&N kit like the 99-5000.
The SU-1017 comes with a 10-Year/Million Mile Limited Warranty so it is likely to be the last filter you will buy for your GSX-R. The SU-1017R is warranted against defective materials or workmanship for a period of 1 year from the date of purchase with no mileage limitation.
