Tiger 800XC Replacement air filter options

Hey guys/gals,

Anyone have any experience with MWR air filters? I'm hesitant to purchase a K&N being the documented dust filtration is less than ideal. What are you guys running on your Tiger??

$125.00


Here's their site

Are you still running the stock filter? Have you looked what it looks like so far? Mine is in bad shape @ 3k/ 2 months.

Stay with stock and get a pre-filter. Thats what I am doing. With the pre-filter you should be able to keep the stock filter clean for a minimum of twice the time it would normaly need changing.

I think the stock filter has acceptable performance but don't like that it can't be cleaned and is a pain to get to. Uni in Australia has a pre-filter that several guys did a group-buy on and I missed it. This is my home-brew solution:

Slick setup!

One question though. I've seen on the forums the battery area get wet/muddy/etc... do you think the side holes expose a possible water path??

Good stuff Evomx971.
I'm gonna do the same. Thanks.

Here's a question for you guys with home brew or the Uni Pre filters.

Is the any changes necessary for the fuel mapping needed?
Do you see any changes in your fuel mileage from adding a pre filter?

Thanks in advance.
Dave

Pre-filter may be the way to go, easier to get to I guess

What are you guys with 10k+miles /Heavy dirt riding mi doing with your filter, OEM everytime? Anyone experiencing dirty intake manifold area with K&N filters??

Anyone with a K&N, can you please post up a picture of the clean side of the intake after you remove your dirty filter for cleaning??

I'm going to pull the trigger this week on a reusable or paper filter but I've had mediocre results running K&N filters on dirt bikes with the dust and all.

Any help is greatly appreciated all!

K&N = good for track & good for power.
BAD for engine wear in dusty environments.
Stick with OEM IMHO

As per your request.

Guess which one has 7950 miles on it? Pulled it tonight and installed the new factory filter in conjunction with the new Uni pre filter.

The other side looked clean. I spent most of last winter/spring chasing fast guys on the dirt.

Cool, post up some pics after your pre-filter has been helping at next service
