In 1957, Norm McDonald met Ken Johnson and the pair of gear heads opened K&N Motorcycles in Loma Linda, California

K and N Motorcycles, which started as primarily a service shop, blossomed in 1958 when Ken and Norm saw the promise in a then relatively unknown Japanese motorcycle brand. The visionaries became one of the first Yamaha dealers in the US.

K and N Engineering was born in 1965, when Ken and Norm started their innovative parts company by first producing a line of handlebars, fenders, and braces for those spindly 1960s forks. The next year, K and N air filters were born.
