These vehicles used only premium lubricants that were available at the time.
In later years I found out thru oil analysis that high levels of silica could be directly traced to the quality of your air filter.
My last desert bike was a CanAm 250 with a twin air filter that never needed a new bore or piston. I donít think the fraction of a Horsepower is worth the cost of the Baja Bore job. The bikes I have now I want to last, if I lust for more power I will go to a big bore kit.

Rant Over
So I'm guessing you don't like K & N air filters for the XT225
Does twin air make one for the XT225? or what would you recommend?
Funny, I bought a K&N air filter for my Porsche and I could not get it to fit.
Maybe that was a blessing in disguise.
