Two questions re: the UNI

#1, how long can I expect it to last?
#2, can yu buy JUST the foam piece?

The reason I ask #2 is because I just bought an old XRL and the foam was toast. I looked aorund but didn't see a replacement foam filter. I found the total package on Amazon for $25 shipped.

I think some info was lost or missed. It's only blowing black smoke, not white which translates to a rich condition.

I think it went above my head that white smoke equates to burning oil. The bike just started to blow black smoke. With me mentioning that the motorcycle is burning oil, also consider my daily 64 mile round-trip highway commute under high revs with 10w40 may result in oil consumption.

I will await the new jets, clean and re-install the carburetor, and perform a leak down test.

Yup, refering to stock carboration; before dropping tons of time and cash into the bike, get it running good carb wise.

As far as hop-ups, I am running Dave's mods, high-comp Wiseco (against the collectives wishes) and a header and FMF Q2 with a Uni filter. Bike runs great, had a short 10 mile loop yesterday just around the neighborhood to clear my head after a stressful weekend of car repairs and the bike runs like a top.

FYI, unless you are doing extended freeway speeds (75mph +) you shouldn't be using much oil. At 14K mine needed new valve seals which is why I went into the motor in the first place, but I always use 10w-40 motorcycle oil and had very little consumption, just more annoying then anything.

YMMV, however; but before spending major bucks on a rebuild, know what you got or you may end up with the same issues when you are all said and done.

Mike

Thanks for Clarifying Mike. So it is common knowledge that running at high highway speeds may lead to oil consumption, which may explain my loss.

Again, I will isolate the issues and go from there. Cheers!

Yep,

I rode 170 Miles Backroads cruising this Sunday and burned about 3 oz of 5w-40. Approximate / average speed 70.

Just my 2c worth.

Regards all,

Ok for one........do you know what the OE Honda filter costs??????..

A Uni filter with the cage is cheaper i think...so if it rots out in a year or two...you are still ahead because you would have had to buy at least 2 OE filters in that time.....basically don`t worry over 25 bucks..you already saved that the first time you clean it

And for 2.......you should have 2 of these filters,one in the bike,the other oiled up in a bag ready to swap,so you don`t have to play arround,and can change it at your leisure

Rode with the Rox Risers today for the first time.
Just giggles and grins. 2" makes a big difference AND no more dinking my tank with the hand guard bolts.
Amish folk look at you funny when you blow by standing on the pegs on their gravel/mud road and giggling

Bar Risers

So after finishing the CRF fork installation with RSW Racing triple clamps and his 3" risers. The bike is too damm tall. I'm 6'2'' and the bars are now almost up to my arm pits!!! It makes for a fun mount or dismount...
