How often do you change your air filters?

Recommended Posts

How often do you change your air filter, and do you replace it or buy a reusable / cleanable filter such as a K&N or UNI?

Normaly after every dirtride, ´cause then it´s nessecary. Only reuseable filters and water soluble filteroil, it´s environmental.

Depending on riding conditions. More dusty, more frequently. Turns into about every 2nd or 3rd ride. The Uni is holding up great so far and love the No Toil cleaning kit I use for it!

I change out the filter about once a year. Clean and re-oil at the end of every riding day.

The stocker is holding up great for me, one year on it and it's still in good shape. It gets cleaned and reoiled every dusty ride for sure, I'll let it go more than one ride if it's wet out and it doesn't collect much dirt. Don't forget to sponge out the airbox while you've got the filter out!

In order to ensure clean airflow and that dirt particles don't get into the carb or worse yet the combustion chamber, you should atleast clean the filter element after every ride. UNI/TWIN-AIR and the K&N filters are very good. You can also save yourself big hassles in dusty conditions by using Filter Skins with the quick release tab. When your bike starts to bog because of poor airflow, you just reach back to the tab velcro'd to the fender, Pull and you've got a clean filter ready to rock-n-roll...

I have a spare oil filter, oiled & ready to go in a plastice bag if needed. I'll change between moto's on a dusty day. It's only a 2 min job and I've never had to replace a filter except when I tear one.

I change mine after every ride, not because it may be dirty but when cleaning the bike I usually get water on the filter during the process so I will change it out after the bike is cleaned off. I have 3 filters that I rotate around so I always have one available when needed.

:D:)

      Selling an FMF Power Core 4 exhaust system off my 450FX. Exhaust has 80 hours and is 100% functional. This will also fit the 14-15 YZ450F and 16-18 Wr450F. If needed I can also include new muffler packing although it does not need it.

      I have a 2008 YZ450F with a stock header pipe and Pro Circuit T-4 Slip-On Exhaust. I'm 99% sure the slip on is shot because its loud as hell and when I take it off and shake it it rattles. I would repack it but the screws are all stripped ect.
      Anyways I've gone over the carb multiple times and I've got it running pretty well. The only issue I have with the bike is that it sputters and pops around 1/2 throttle when I hold it there. When I give it full throttle from any RPM it runs great or when I give it about 3/4 throttle it spins up like a top to redline.
      Initially the popping and sputtering was way worse I made the situation better by moving the pilot jet up in a few sizes from a 45 (stock) to a 62. The issue has gotten way better since then but I'm not super sure what to do from here. Should I keep moving my pilot jet up in size because that's a pretty large jump right? I tried changing my needle clip position but that didn't help much if anything it just made starting it worse and little to no impact on the ride.
      Any input on this would be helpful. I don't want to buy other slip on. Also as for the rest of the carb I'm very sure everything else in it is what it needs to be at. I've replaced all the gaskets and O-rings cleaned all the jets, valve holes ect. fixed the accelerator pump timing. I just thinks its strange that my pilot jet size is going so far from the stock 45, but all symptoms point to the bike running lean.

      Hi I was wondering if y’all have been using a 450 on your YZ250F?

      Excel Takasago 17x3 front and 17x5 rear supermoto wheels with Metzler M3 tires in very lightly used condition. Less than 200 miles total on the setup. Warp 9 spokes. Rear has a Talon hub with 45T Sunstar steel sprocket and OEM rear disc, and front has a polished OEM Yamaha WR450F hub (for the stock speedometer), with a Motomaster 320mm disc. Included is a DID gold o-ring chain, 14T front sprocket, and front brake caliper adapter for a truly turn key setup. Everything is in excellent condition, not a single scratch on these wheels. Came off my '11 WR450F, but will fit many different Yamahas with 20mm front and 22mm rear axles. Asking $1400 plus shipping.
      **Will be driving up near Atlanta, then to northern Louisiana, OKC, and down through Dallas and Houston, TX soon -- can meet or deliver if in the area (Aug 31-Sep 9)**

      Hi I’m new on the forum and I was wondering if a 2001 Yamaha YZ426f clutch is interchangeable with a 2002 Yamaha YZ426f clutch thanks , Coleman
