Uni Air Filter Problem -- Anybody Else Seen This ?

Recommended Posts

I did a CRF450 forum search, and didn't get any hits on this. Is anybody running the Uni air filter on their CRF450? I just tried to put one in my '03 CRF450 last weekend, and the hole in the center of the Uni filter for the filter screen bracket is wrong, IMO. It isn't a clear-through hole that lets the plastic tip of the bracket poke through -- it stops the bracket about 1/4" short of poking through, which makes the air filter screw too short to reach the threads in the airbox housing bracket.

I think I'm just going to carefully drill out the 1/4" stop piece in the Uni filter, and then it should work okay. But it sure seems strange that Uni would market a filter that doesn't fit. I wonder if the '04 and later CRF450s have longer air filter screws? 😢😢

I bought a UNI and the dang thing seems like it's too big by about 1/2 inch all the way around. But the hole for the bolt was fine????

I put it on the shelf and swore I would stick to Twin Air (I have two of those and they are fine).
