How to / Tech Tip...Air box washing

Recommended Posts

 

My air box was starting get a bit dirty so I decided it was time to give it a bath .

I don’t have a air box cover so I use the poor mans air box cover - a zip lock bag ..

1 I remove the dirty air filter and put a couple of bits of clean paper towel in the air boot to catch any stray water.

2 I put the dirty air filter and cage in a zip lock plastic bag and seal it.

3 I punch the the two holes required for mounting and push the excess air out.

4 I install on the bike and squirt ct18 everywhere.

5 Garden hose / pressure wash out all the dirt. Don’t hit the bag with pressure washer...

I could do it every ride too but it’s not necessary imho. I ride to often... :)
