Yamaha owner?

Good things come in threes. The Yamaha YXZ1000R’s sport-tuned three-cylinder engine is redefining what it takes to be on the cutting edge of UTV motor design. The 998cc liquid-cooled DOHC inline triple produces about 112 HP. One of the great things about this engine is that it responds very well to performance modifications.

Well, good things come in threes with K&N, too. The K&N YA-0116 direct replacement air filter embodies the big three in the filtration world – performance, protection, and convenience.


Let’s start with performance. The YA-0116 is designed to provide increased horsepower and acceleration. That potential performance increase comes as a direct result of the increased airflow that the pleated, cotton gauze filter element provides.

Clearly, effective engine protection is vital for the YXZ1000R as the Yamaha is an emerging king of the dirt. Putting anything but a filter that is specifically designed for the brutal conditions of the track, trail, or dune is just unwise.


Like all of K&N’s off-road specific filters, the multiple layers of oiled, woven cotton gauze media in the YA-0116 offer excellent filtration. K&N’s rigorous in-house testing resulted in an estimated overall filtration efficiency of over 98%.



Finally, the YA-0116 is one of the easiest and most convenient modifications you can make on your YXZ1000R. The filter comes pre-oiled and ready to install in the factory air box. It should also be noted that the YA-0116 is designed to require no fuel management modification. It’s the plug and play filter of the performance UTV world.



Give the K&N YA-0116 a look and you’ll agree that it embodies a trio of design elements that make it the perfect choice for your YXZ1000R, YXZ1000R SE, or YXZ1000R SS. This awesome filter fits the following vehicles:

  • 2017 YAMAHA YXZ1000R SS SE 998 – All Models
