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


Saw that one about 10 min after I posted here lol :D

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


i use a degreaser from supercheap then wash out with water . put them in a zip lock bag witha amount of filter oil , put a tiny hole in one corner and squeeze like mad. the water seperates and comes out leaving me with a oiled filter which i let dry on the fan.

Might have to look at the no toil. Wasn't 100% sold on it, but no smell would make the wife happy.

Reason i haven't gone for it so far is i like the filter oil I'm using atm.

The early NO-Toil (the red oil) was a bit funny to use. But the new Evolution Oil (the green stuff) is by far the best on the market. And it gives me great pleasure to tip the dirty water out into the storm drain as the nosey old women accross the street is looking at me out the window trying to dob me into the council. Because its Biodegradeble, You are allowed to do such thing.

I use diesel to get the oil out,then wash them out in warrm water with dishwashing liquid until theres no grit in the bucket after I tip the water out.
I,ve always been a believer in wasing the filter after every ride but on my TE511 the airfilter is up where the petrol tank normally is and it stays real clean,
so I take it out and block the intake before I wash it.
