Air filter rips

Recommended Posts

Hey all. Accidentally made three small tears in air filter today. Is this okay to right for a few hours tomorrow? New air filter doesn't get in until Thursday. Filter is on an 08crf250r

I'd run it until its dirty again and retire it at that point.  I'm guessing the tear in the red doesn't go through the inner layer?  The tears on the gray rim foam will probably be compressed once installed.

Filters definitely have a finite life span.  Delicate material, harsh chemicals.

Fill the tears in with a dab of grease.

 

Buy a new filter soon.

+1.  I have done this several times.  No dirt will get past the grease.
