I have plenty of power in the low to mid range and only wish for a bit more power to pass slow moving traffic! ( 305cc big bore kit is my next mod). One question: can you maintain 100kph (gps verified) on the highway with that gearing?
Hi Kiwi,

I wanted the snorkel to stop migrating water on the airbox lid from being sucked in. That lid does get wet. Not losing anything by having a snorkel, since I chose the size. You asked if with 13/42 gearing I can hold 100kph. Yes, I can. It's just at higher revs than before, but not excessive. Having said that, I chose the Dunlop D606 for my new rear tire (needs it), and the D606 is slightly larger in diameter, so that will lower the ratios a tad, lowering the revs a bit.

It's probably best to just play around with the settings. My bike has full Arrow system, DNA air filter, stock airbox and EJK controller. My settings are 1.5,3,1.5. Which are different from a lot of peoples on here. With the stock Stage 1 settings it was way too rich. The bike flies now :-)[/QUOTE]

Yeah, you're right, I do need to play with them a bit. After a couple more rides I'll see if it looks too carbon'd up or not. I hate adjusting the EJK. It skips steps all the time. I have to get lucky when I press the mode button to advance to the correct next step.

I've bookmarked the site for that air filter. It would be nice to have a high flow filter that has some backfire protection, and is cleanable!

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.
