Filter the Filter

As I was changing over to the bigger filter, I noticed a light dust inside the hoses and air box. Last season, I had been riding on a very dusty road. There were some ATVs kick'n up clouds of dust ahead of me.
Nothing big, got through the K&N, but some very fine stuff did.

So this year I added a bigger filter and a foam pre-filter. I had to laugh, because it looks like a Nerf ball. But, it should keep out the dust.
Nerf vs. new engine? I'll take the Nerf.

I bought this through K&N.

Re: Filter the Filter

A few years back I read an article, and I can't remember where, the guy was blasting K&N for the very reason your talking about. He said that K&N "DOES" flow more air than any other but what they don't say is small particles also pass through. I'm not sure the foam cover will do much to stop that. He said that he will only run oiled foam with a dry outter filter. I still run the K&N with an outter wear but I don't run as much dust as you.

Re: Filter the Filter

I think it was "Bob the Oil Guy". He was comparing automotive filters.
This foam has a small amount of oil on it.

Re: Filter the Filter

I have always used old stockings for prefilters on my K&N FILTERS and they work so so well, never had any paritcles to the naked eye go into my air tubes at all, just like the Pilot odyssey thread.

Good reading. That's why I put on a big filter and have oiled foam over it.

Re: Filter the Filter

The very first mod we did to our revolts was to throw away the k&n filter and fit uni filters , they are much better at keeping the Aussie bull dust out

Re: Filter the Filter

Hey Bearfoot, that's what was recommended in that article I read. I just couldn't remember the brand. Google K&N filters passing dirt. You can probably find more info on this issue. UNI filters was recommended though.

Here's a link .... Universal Air Filters

The intakes will need a 2-1/4" ID filter flange.
Part Numbers up6229st, or up6229ast. Also look at the foam covers for K&N's
Uni-filts are much cheaper $18.99 vs $32.00 for a similar sized filter.
