So I bought a K&N and I'm finding out from everyone on here that its a bad idea for off road. I don't wanna trash it and buy a uni so any ideas???? :ph34r:

K&N has a Pre-filter wrap for your filter I would think. If not try Outerwears & see if they have a pre-filter for your unit. I use the Outerwears on all my K&N quad filters.

Go buy a regular foam filter or you will find out it will cost you far more for valves, guides and piston.

I know what I should do. But I spent 50 bucks on the dang thing....

An old pair of the wife or girlfriends nylon stockings work in a pinch.

That seems like a decent idea. Hmmm

Some people like K&N. Many don't. I think the key is to use their filter oil.

You can sell it to someone that supermotoed their XR400

See the FAQ for a pre filter for the airbox. I run one for my UniFilter.

Yeah I agree the oil is the main thing that stops dirt particles. I will get a uni soon I guess. I'm tired of tearing down my 21 year old motor. Haha.

Yup!  It's pretty enlightening for a person to remove the carb, and see that its bore is covered in dirt.  :)

Use an UNI filter.  A Twin Air is also good, but I don't believe you can buy one that comes with the cage.

 

Good Luck!

All Uni Filters for Xr200-250-400-600-650 come with cage.BTR
