Air Filter

Recommended Posts

What is a good air filter for the DRZ, not interested in K&N.

 

Free flow is important but I am looking for one that hold up well to being cleaned.

 

There are so many to choose from its hard to know which one flows well and captures crap.

Either the stock one or twin air, with the addition of real airfilter oil like Belray, nothing gets through

Remove the word notoil from your thoughts

What's wrong with no-toil?

its biodegradeable filter oil, Belray is not, less effected by time, moisture ect. There's been a few reports of filtration not as good and getting dusting inside of airboots.

Many run it, and there filters, Im just giving my view of many years and a lot of oem and twin airs with Belray.

ok, interesting. Only reason why I run them is because there super easy to clean. I haven't got one yet for the DRZ, I may just get a UNI, I like those too just messy to clean and oil up. Actually probably won't get anything until my stock one doesn't look good lol

Twin air. Belray. Twin air. Belray. Twin air. Belray. For anything that sees dirt there is nothing better. The last thing you want to do is cheap out on your filter and oil.

Uni has the grease groove, so you have to run grease cause it has a huge open channel in the filter base. If you have a good mechanical seal on the filter base with a normal filter, nothing will get through the belray, its super tacky, you don't need grease. alternate would be like a pj1 oil, I used to like Honda filter oil many years ago, till they changed it to a more epa friendly crap, it no longer had the same quality. Last time I reviewed the Uni, I just didn't like the quality of its filter(seamed more (pourous) in comparison to oem and twin air.

Cleaning procedure, I normally, set up a bucket with dish soap. quickly douse the filter with a little stale gas to break down the oil,then immediately submerge the filter in the bucket of soapy water. then take to the sink and thoroughly clean with water and dish soap. Let air dry, and then hose with filter oil. let sit for a minute, then take paper towels and squeeze every bit of oil that you can get out. Ready for install.

I use belray foam filter oil. Another one I like is the yamalube filter oil it's extremely sticky as well.

I run a Twin Air and NoToil filter, both are of good quality... though the Twin Air has two foam layers (course and finer).

I also use the NoToil bio oil, easy to apply and even easier to clean. I haven't seen any dirt past the filter yet. I do not ride in super dusty conditions for the most part either.

In my opinion a twin air filter with yamalube filter oil is the best. Make sure you use enough oil too. Inside and out needs to be covered completely.

Put the oil in a plastic bag, drop the filter in, massage the oil around and voila, a well oiled filter.

Notoil will pass fine dust if it is very dusty and the filter gets so dirty that it dries out, that is when it happens.
