'02 K&N Air Filter

Yes it is out however most K&N parts catalog do not list it. The part number you're looking for is #33-2231 which fits the 2002 air box perfectly and much better than #33-2070 which is for the earlier years.

It's obvious that #33-2231 is designed specifically for the 2002 model year. The filter is slightly smaller in length and width and comes with a 1/4" neoprene type self adhesive gasket that affixes to the air box lid around the perimeter channel to insure a tight seal around the filter and air box.

Hope that helps.
