Cleaning your ail filter

Cleaning your ail filter

Post by Astrid on Thu Jun 05, 2014 8:39 pm

Sounds easy and it is if you know the right way to do it.

1. Take the air filter box out and carefully remove the foam filter. Check where everything fits so you can put it back all by yourself too  Wink 
2.  I use an engine cleaner mixed with hot water to soak the box, attachments and the foam in. Depending on how dirty it is, I sometimes leave it in there overnight.
3. Squeeze the foam until it comes out cleaner than when it went in.
4. It's not a waslap, ok? So don't wring it's neck, just press all the water out and preferably dry it out over night.
5. Time to add waterproof grease. Bell ray makes a very good one, but they're not easy to find.
6. Now it all depends on the type of bike and filter. For KTM's, you only apply the grease at the base of the foam. Half assemble first though. I know for the KDX and the Puzey you need to cover the whole filter as it doesn't sit in a beautiful little see-through box like the Pumpkins. So for those you need to pretend that you're rubbing Wifey's sore neck. Give it a good massage so that it gets in everywhere.
7. NEVER use FUEL or VASELINE from the Kids' bath stash to cover your filter. It eats the foam and you'll have to replace it a lot sooner.
8. Last step is to obviously put it back properly. Back in the casing for KTM's and tighten the nut for others.

Simple right?  Wink

You okes are nuts. I have never done a damn thing to my bike other than try to kill it by
dropping it a lot. I have no idea where the air filter is, let alone how to get hold of it,
take it out, wash it like you love it and then replace it.

I dunno if I should ever ride anything other than a Honda. That CRF100 which Lefty is riding has had NOTHING
checked on it since we got it. I put petrol in it from time to time and off Lefty and the bike go. I dunno if
Rooster serviced it when he had it?

Heck, that little bike got useless ol' me over the Blue Route!

Rooster, did you service the 100? Don't swear now ok, but how does one tell when it needs
a service? Also, how old is the bike (year model etc). When I sell it, the buyer is probably going to
ask me the age and I have no idea.

Yes I did. Its 2010. But it looks abused now. Some lawyer must have treated it like a road bike. Thank god its bullet proof. Will need a service for sure.

Rooster, I hope you are sitting down??!! Ok, deep breath now, Lawyer Boy (maybe my new handle!) is willing to service Lefty's 100. I will PM you early next and you can gimme a quick list of what to buy. I am guessing:

Air filter, oil filter, oil, brake fluid (I know it is air cooled so no coolant).

I will also get my tools out - no seriously - and check what I can do (or eff up) on the brakes as
her front brake is poor and the rear is what rear?

Wow Gatecrasher. You serious? You have to clean the filter at least once a week depending on where you ride. Through mud and sandy areas is a must. Especially if you've dropped it.

I can come find and clean it for you at a fee..... Lol
Oh and pre flight your bike every week  Razz

No Brake fluid, cable brakes. Frontbrake is useless, dont bother.

Chain, Sparks, Oil and Air filter - all done.
