Re: air filter


i would contact no-toil

this is the filter i have on my bike and it is awesome

its all bio-degradable cause it is made from veggie oil.

pour it on your filter, work through, the alcohol evaporates and it adheres to filter with other natural sticky agents. flows better, traps dirt better.

pour on cleaning powder, rinse with water

thats it

in 10 min i can have it off, cleaned, lubed and back on bike with no mess.

Re: air filter

I always used just soap and water to clean my filters but i cleaned them quite often so they never got so grungy that I had to use and kinda solvent or filter cleaner that out there, that could break down the foam and cause them to come apart and suck dirt.

Id just use the run of the mil bel-ray filter oil cause its all oil no matter how you look at it or if that no-toil stuff is the about the same price you could try that or i guess I should say it may be worth trying, also if your ever in pinch and you need to clean your filter just find sink and clean it with the sop and water and when yur done get all the water out that you can and then put pre mix oil on it and keep squeezing it in till the water is displaced, then youl have dry filter and ready to ride, thats only if you didnt have filter oil on you at the time.

Re: air filter

They say not to slap a freshly oiled filter on our YZFs Paul. Supposed to let them sit overnight because they'll suck the oil out of the filter???? And thats a bad thing. I've always let mine sit, so I'm not sure if it's true.

I use the K&N foam filter oil/cleaning kit. It's cheap and works good.

Re: air filter

I'm going to give the no toil system a shot and see how it works. Sounds easy. I bought the cleaner/oil/greese kit and am waiting on the filter to get in.
