Hey guys new here just pick up a 1990 vtr 250 with 6,000 miles, mint condition
Asking would it hurt to use a k-n- filter

Also what oil to use for an oil change.

K&N does not make an air filter for the VTR. They do offer an oil filter though. I would stick with stock Honda. The intake tract is about as highly tuned as it can be and it seems that any attempt to make it better, doesn't. I also haven't heard very good things about K&N filters and their ability to filter fine particles. If you'd like, you could modify the stock filter support to hold a re-usable foam insert, thus saving you the $20-$30 for a new one each season.
