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

Looks like I'll be buying this for the pre-filter setup. Only $14



Comes in a 12x16" or 12x24" sizes to adapt to the snorkel.

checked my filter at just over 3000 miles after a trip to Germany and it wasnt too bad. Gave it a blow out with an airline and was as good as new.

I used to use the filter skins on my desert dirt bikes. They work very effectively.

Yes. It would work with the Uni PRE filter. They come in different sizes. You can keep several clean ones in a ziplock bag and switch them out trail side.

If you want to try it, another tip from olden dirt bike days is to use an oiled knee high women's nylon stocking. It doesn't have the elastic draw, but can be tucked under the lip. They work fairly well, but not as good as the filter skins, which are very effective.

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
