Bmc / yoshimura air filter set up?

Recommended Posts

Hi I have searched but cannot find any answers so can any one help

I have looked at pics on the Schwantz bike etc and cannot make it out

Is the air box still there but with the back cut open for in to stick out of

Or dose it fit in place of the air box with an adaptor etc

If any one can help that would be awesome

Yoshimura used to sell a BMC filter kit for the DRZ that completely eliminated the air box. It used a tube, cone style filter, and then had some adapters and brackets. (to mount the oil recovery system)

 

I contacted them to try and purchase this, I was told it was discontinued.  I found it in their catalog, so it may still be in there (Even though it can't be ordered).

That's what I was thinking have you got any pics of it? Or a link

you can buy the filter from bmc so just want to get an idea of how it looks etc

I don't have any pictures, as I couldn't order it. It may still be in the Yoshimura catalog that was where I found it a few months back. They had pictures of all the parts / filter.

 

It is just an open filter, no air box at all.

Just had a look on the online catalog and couldn't find it

Do you know if it goes straight on the back of the carb

Or dose it use the existing boot that goes a round the shock so literally just swap it out for the air box

IIRC it was a new boot and used a metal section of tube. When I get home I'll have a look and see if I can dig it up. They may have removed it though, as when I called they had to call Yoshimura Japan and call me back, at which time they told me it had been discontinued.

nothing all open filters I guess do the same job just some better than others

I wanted the bmc because it's what they used and it looks cool (but that's just me)

I am from the UK to but don't ride in the rain so not that worried

'Open' airbox/filter gains nothing and infact, can result in reduced performance. It was a 'showoff' mod. Any engine up to 55HP gets plenty of air with just a 3X3. I bet it was dropped because those that got it were terribly disappointed.

 

Like a chick in a thong on a horse. Looks good but it really is not that great in the saddle

Thanks for the pics on the Schwantz bike it looks like it is wrapped it foam to stop the major dirt

But in the other hand looks like they have just cut the back of the air box off because the shock guard looks like the original bracket which is the air box
