Product review of WR Performance F3 filter cleaner
https://wrperformanceproducts.com/products/f3?variant=11836804104234 Hey all, so I have another product review for you all. WR Performance F3 air filter cleaner So I use Twin Air Bio oil and the twin air bio powder cleaner for years. I have 3 bikes right now and I use about 4 different brands of air filters. Every time I clean the filters I do everything as per the instructions from Twin Air for both cleaning and re-oiling the filters. But after letting the cleaned (not oiled) air filters air dry for a few days, they would still feel oily and the foam felt stiff. So I would try to clean them again, over and over. Each time using more and more twin air powder cleaner. And they would get marginally cleaner but never clean clean. Still feeling slightly oily and foam still stiff.   Earlier this year at a Ride that I went to WR Performance was giving out small sample bottles of their F3 filter cleaner. The guy was talking up a huge game about how great this stuff was. I was thinking at the time it can’t be as good as the stuff that Twin Air sells to remove/clean Twin Air oil. They make the oil so they must know how to remove it right?????? Well for the most part.... kinda..... sort of....  here is the color of the Twin air cleaner/water after a filter clean   So the samples from WR Performance sat on my shelf for the entire season.  Kinda forgot that I had it. Today I had 3 filters to clean. I remembered that I had the samples so let’s give it a go.   WOW!!!!! Is the only word I can think of? So I cleaned the filters using the Twin air cleaner first. Same old same old. Then I gave F3 a go. WOW!!! I could not believe how much oil was still in the filters. the bag is how I cleaned the ""cleaned"" filters a with F3 cleaner..The F3 cleaner is clear  So just like any other filter cleaner, you soak the filter and kneaded the filter and squeeze dry then rinse with water.    Almost instantly the clear F3 cleaner turned green (same color as the twin air oil). Then when I rinsed with water the filter started to foam up as if there was soap. But I did not put any.   This is a secondary cleaner that is in the F3 cleaner. And it works very well. It comes in two sizes and does not seem more money than the twin air cleaner. For the amount of filters I can clean with one bottle. I truly feel that this stuff works.


SUV or pickup
So I'm looking for my first nice vehicle, it will definitely be used. Now that I have a dirt bike I was thinking which is better? I can get a small trailer for an SUV, and still have room for passengers and equipment. Used Pickups seem to hold their value and are pricey for what they are, but are better off road and I wouldn't need a trailer. So I have $9000 and I'm stuck. Any advice?
DIY Strapless Bike Tie-down system
I posted about this a few years ago in the trailer set-up thread.   http://www.thumpertalk.com/index.php?/topic/296280-Enclosed-Trailer-Setups#entry10577511   Since then, I have had a few questions in private messages about how it is made so I thought I would post a Document that explains it.  Basically it is a very easy way to clamp your bikes down securely using the foot-pegs rather than using straps on the handlebars.  Total cost is about $30 per bike which is about as much as a good set of tie-downs.  I hope this helps somebody else out.        
New tow rig
I’m going to be getting my first truck as I just got my bike. I’m stuck tho on what to get, my biggest thing is reliability and I’m kinda leaning towards a 4Runner and a trailer but at the same time having a truck would so much more convenient. With trucks being more expensive what would you guys recommend?

Issue with inserting @ usernames in a reply or post
Any time I inset a user name in a reply or post the cursor stays inside the name of the insert and I can not delete the user name or do anything else. I usually have to type in text leave spaces and go back and insert the @ username. I just insert this and  I can type after doing it but nothing with it or after it. @Brian Wilson
Don’t have permission to reply
Hey ThumperTalk and hopefully admins, I couldn’t find anywhere else to inquire about why I no longer have permission to reply to any threads. I made a post a while ago about some FMF stickers that I was reproducing because they aren’t made anymore and thought maybe that could be the reason as I can’t find the post anymore and haven’t been able to post since. If I’m suspended or banned could someone please let me know. I didn’t get any messages or notifications   Thanks TT
