BBR Air Filter Kit

Recommended Posts

I installed the BBR Air Filter Kit on my 2003 TTR125LE. Works great and bike runs well. The problem is getting it back out to clean my filter. :thumbsup:

The kit is pretty snug in the electric start model. There's not enough room to unscrew the filter from the basket. Therefore you have to slide the whole thing out by the base plate. It's stuck pretty good and I can't get a good grip, or leverage, to pull it out.

Anyone else using this kit that has had this problem? Any suggestions?

I had the same problem. I took some safety wire (any light wire would work) and made a loop to fit loosely around the base. Now I just get hold of the loop and pull the filter right out. Try it, it works great!

I have a couple of holes drilled, 1/4" or so, in the flat part of the filter cage on the right side. When i want to pull the assembly out I put a hook in the hole and pull it out. The hook can be as simple as a bent nail.
