Another filter I purchased. Never used a K&N filter before also. Only thing makes me worried is bypass spring/assembly is definitely off center or I need glasses. No excuses for that IMO. Made in China also is surprise.

Otherwise it looks OK

Enjoy the pictures

Typical red china dye. I see it a lot, and I have good reasons to never buy anything with it on there except fireworks. So often it has indicated poor quality. Not always but often.

Yeah, I could tear media also, typical chinchy made filter. Glad I paid under $5 for it.

If you're talking about the end coil of the bypass valve spring being off center, don't think it matters as long as the bypass valve operated correctly.

Red colored media means it's poor quality? Where's the facts/science behind that claim. How does red colored media make it "poor quality"?

I did this and waited 30 minutes. Dye came off easy and tears easier than Super Tech media. On my "dont ever, even in emergency buy"
