K&N air filter

Im thinking of ordering a K&N air filter to fit in my stock air box, but im wondering if I would have to rejet my carbs to compensate for the increase in air flow. What do you guys think?? My bike is in my signature below with stock exhaust.

Stock air box


I believe that just replacing the stock filter with an exact replacement K&N filter will not make a big difference. To make a marked difference in air flow you would need some kind of air box change. Like bigger or more open. Maybe also exhaust.

I think that would mean no jetting would be needed.
