Best way to clean air filter

After looking at the thread on motor protection I'm wondering how you all clean your air filter, what you have, and how often you clean it.

Depends on what kind of filter you have. I use K&N filters with 2 outerwear’s over it with no air box lid. I have 4 K&N filters that I keep cleaned and oiled so I can just change them out after my ride each night. If you have a K&N filter just get the recharger kits and follow the directions.

i have Uni's with the EHS lid. I just clean out my airbox and inspect my filter after every ride. Some times i'll change it after one ride and sometimes i'll get 2 or 3 rides out of it. Just depends on how dirty it looks. I don't let it get really dirty before i change it. I use the Uni filter cleaner and oil and follow the instructions. The Uni oil is good stuff it's super sticky and doesn't run off like other filter oil's i have used.

I have EHS lid with side vents and uni filter. I got foam filter cleaner that you spray on and let it sit for 15 minutes then rinse off with water. Then wait for it to dry and spray the oil on the filter and your good to go.

I know after reading of this potential problem I will be buying an extra filter to rotate with. Oil changes and air filter cleanings are cheap insurance.

I bought a UNI filter and an OuterWear filter. The Filter does not fit the stock or Uni Filter. Only the K&N filter. So this is what I did with the Outerwear.

A good process

Folks I run the Pro Design with the red pre filter and no lid. In Aus we have microscopic dirt particles (BECAUSE IT IS SO DRY) and its not what filter you have, its how often you clean it and how.

1. Buy to 10 litre buckets with lids you can seal.
2. Fill each one with 5 liters of Turps or Kero. (I like Turps)
3. Have one as the first clean, then the second one for the final clean
4. I then rinse the filters out in soapy water then rinse with clean water.
5. Hang on line to dry.
6. Oil filter

This may sound a bit of a hassle but once your set up its a 5 min process. I live in one of the driest countrys on earth and I have lived by this process ever since I started riding 35 years ago and have never dusted a motor, quad or dirt bike.

Folks this set up lasts about a year before you have to change the Turps or Kero maybe less if your racing and by the way keep the buckets in a cool place so they dont expand.
