Air filter

I picked up a new foam air filter for my CB 1000, it's a Uni filer. The original unit is a paper element filter. The directions for the Uni filter say to spray it with Uni oil, soak up all the extra and install it. I've been using the No Toil stuff on the dirtbikes and am thinking about using it on the street filer as well. If for nothing else, easier clean up. Anybody got any comments on this?

Re: Air filter

I use the same stuff on my cr and atv's with foam filters brian with no problems. Just make sure you get the whole thing, hold it up to the light and rotate it to make sure there are no dry spots.

Re: Air filter

But you don't want it sloppin' wet with whatever you use, end up suckin' that junk through the carbs of the CBR. They want you to use lots so you buy more..... it's a conspiracy..... [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

Re: Air filter

Steve, that was my main concern, gumming up the carbs. I'm going to give it a shot and see what happens. I picked up a small spray bottle and poured some of the oil inside, but the oil is too thick to actually spray, it squirts out. I'll work out something.

Re: Air filter

dont uni filters have the rubber glued to the mating surface or something? if so the no toil eats the glue n it falls apart.

Re: Air filter

The no toil stuff is bio-degradable; it uses some kind of peanut oil that can be washed off right in the sink, using a powder soap that comes with the kit. That's its main attraction, easy clean up. I'm not sure it contains anything that would eat any adhesive used on the filter, but I'll soon know. [img]images/graemlins/RockOn.gif[/img] I like these new gremlins.
