Post Air filters
What air filter do you suggest? Anyone tried the funnelweb filters? Are they worth the extra $$? dontknow
What others are good?

I use the twin air filters but they are going to need replacing soon.

Was going to get some more twin air, but interested to know what everyone thinks.

Post Re: Air filters
The twin air filters are good. I wanted to buy a funnel web filter once. But i was advised to stick with using twin-air filters because the funnel web filters are more for road use. Dont know about that dontknow . Either way you go, get 2 of them and have one in the resealable bag they come in pre oiled and ready to go. Can i also mention NO-Toil filter oil. $20 to $25 for the kit.

Funnelwebs are no good in dust, there good for the road or freshly watered MX tracks i,ve been told ,
For trail riding you really need a twin layer filter ,
I run Twin Air filters , but have run the dual stage Uni filter in the past and have never dusted a motor with either of those even during the last drought dontknow

How do you tell if the filter is good? I've got a couple twin airs a funnel web and a pair of no toils that came per-oiled that I rotate. I don't really notice a difference except that the funnel web appears a bit tougher therefore easy to wring out without tearing. Nothing seems to really get through any of them - in that the air intake always looks clean... What's a good indicator of how good they are? I don't notice my bike run any differently but maybe I should?

True, and i dont but the funnel webs don't have the same stitching so you can press, squeeze, fold them a little more aggressively than others which makes cleaning them easier (for me)

While we're talking about cleaning filters, How does everyone go about it?

I used to use turps, someone told that was a bit harsh on the filters and to use kero instead.

So I use kero now, then hot soapy water to wash the kero off, and then plain water to wash the soapy water off... I get 3 buckets going, wife gets the shits cause I use all the dish washing liquid and every bucket we own smells like kero and dish washing liquid evil6

I know that my air filter cleaning ritual probably goes over the top but I know it's clean icon_thumright

My mates and i use FWF in our dirt bikes which do get pretty dirty and I like them, my mate says depending on rides he can leave it it there longer without cleaner because of the bigger surface area.

Funny as it was only this morning I posted the same question on tra - seems uni filters had a lot of support too.
