Me on my CRFL, and two buddies (WR450 and WR250) doing some of the technical sections of the Calabogie Boogie last Sept.

The CRFL makes an excellent submarine.

I think RamZ has it on his site too
Ed,

I've tried to find retailers of this filter. I can only find The DNA online store, which is on Greece, and their price is $129.00 CAD (plus shipping) when converted from Euros. You mentioned RamZ has it on his site. Who is ramZ, and how do I find his site? I've googled ramZ to no avail.

Thanks,

Uni Filter Australia

I will be buying a foam air filter from Uni Filter Australia- these have gotten excellent reviews. I will try out Scoot's air box mod- i didn't think any water got under the seat. Probably because it is a long hot and dry summer over here in NZ!

Fyi

Just lurking on the KLX forum. This applies to us also. Somebody had coolant loss, and the instrument cluster failed to indicate overheating, because if the coolant has all leaked out, the sensor can't read air. DOH! I'll bet Honda stripped a KLX to find out how to do it better.

$88 USD, still a little expensive for my tastes also.

thanks...$88 = better...but then again, $13 for the stock filter...88/13 = 6.77 filters...12,000 mi filter change interval = 12,000 * 7 = 84000 miles.....that's a frikkin long filter change interval....based on that...plus you gotta buy filter cleaner and oil....maybe not a good economic choice

Man, you sure have to check prices eh? A stock air filter at my local Honda Powerhouse costs $31.00 CAD. CRF's Only sells the same OEM filter for $21.00 CAD. Put together a sizable order to mitigate the shipping charges (which to Canada, are inflated about 300% over actual shipping cost), and it becomes a good deal.

Not sure of shipping US to Canada, but these are reasonably priced.

Can anyone comment on which has better shipping costs? I'm planning on getting 3-4 air/oil filters. CRF'sonly stiffed me on shipping for the 13t.

I just off the phone with Bill Blue and thought I'd share this for anyone interested.

He was at the dyno measuring his wifes CRF250L. On their dyno they got 17.4 HP at the rear wheel. (I realize that's lower than most dyno #'s)

With his 305cc kit and pipe he got 25.1 HP.

He did some porting on the head, oversize valves and hasn't checked it yet as they were working on another engine. From riding it he told me he thinks it'll have another 2 or 3 hp over the Big Bore.

All of Bill's Dyno #'s seem low/conservative. If you were to compare to this test in cycleworld:
http://www.cycleworld.com/2013/02/27...mparison-test/
They measured the CRF @ 19.6 RWHP (or about 15% more than on Bill's Dyno) and the Yamaha WR250R at 24.8.
Adjusting the dyno #'s would give Bill's 305cc 28.8 RWHP and will have to wait and see on the run with the ported head but I'm sure it's over 30!

Of course the 305cc kit is new so no info yet on reliability but my KLX351 has been amazing reliability wise! http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=954209

HP numbers are ridiculous, at least for this bike. I've seen/read anything from 17 (just now) to 24 HP at the wheel.

I compared the prices for parts that I had ordered recently at discounthondaparts.com with those from hondapartsnation.com, and partsnation was about 40 cents higher on on every item (I ordered 6 oil filters, two air filters and one chain slider for the CB500XA that I have on order).
