Sounds like you've just designed a stand up motorcycle! From your posts you sound like a stand up kinda guy but this is going too far! LOL

you're missing my point. I was just hoping I could buy the filter rather than piling up aluminum cages that end up getting recycled. Should it rot in a year or two? I have no clue how long is a reasonable time to expect it to last if it's washed/oiled regularly.

Also, I fired up the bike with the new CDI and the new coil (separate tests) and it's still bogging down. I'm gonna put the new jets in when they get here and if that doesn't do it I'm not sure what to do next.

The uni foam should last for years,,,,,,,years,,,,,,, if cared for.
Biggest killer is getting into a hurry to clean it, you need to use solvent to break the oil down, then soap and warm water, then lots of warm water, and let it total dry, overnight hung on a fan, people get in a hurry and oil it traping water in the foam and the foam rots from the inside out.

I've got two of 'em just for that reason. One I bought new and one I picked up in a box-o-parts for nothing. Makes it easy to keep a clean one in the pig.

They SHOULD last years,,,,should..........but i`ve heard of them falling apart,the different colored foams separating...not a usual thing though..the cage is plastic.........

So it`s not the coil or CDI......so getting o good baseline on the carb with the jets you are getting,cleaning the bugger out of it before putting it back in will/should point you in the right direction hopefully...good luck bud...

Another problem is using gasoline or petroleum solvents. Dish liquid and hot water works fine for breaking up the filter oil. Gasoline will cause the foam to come apart.

Ruben. I have a spare carb with a cracked body. But all the parts inside are good. So If you want a stock needle and stock spring? Pm me and will work something out. Ben
