Which way up does the filter screen fit?

Recommended Posts

I just bought my 1995 xr250 (wet sump model)   I thought I should clean the filter screen. i removed the right hand casing and after removing the screen Im not sure which way in it went. ie  which side was up and which was down. It will fit either way.

 My second problem is the gear to operate the decompessor has come off the kick start shaft. I dont know without lots of trial and error where to fit it back on. There is a dot punch mark on it but nothing to line it up to.

The cables are missing and it isnt used but I would like to put it back properly.

Can anyone clear these up for me please?

This may be what you need. There is a dot on the starter cam that aligns with a dot on the shaft.


Its hard to tell from the shop manual pictures, as the filter looks the same on both sides. But if it helps, oil flow comes up from the bottom, thru the filter, not down from the top.

If the filter is a mirror image of itself on both sides, no rubber gasket difference, then it should be able to go in either way.
