    I got the bike used and it came with a K&N filter and those dont need the cage support.

    I asked no toil to confirm if the WR250F filter Link that they send me for the extreme filter does fit the WRR and they told me it does fit.
    Wow giving wrong information not cool.

    That unifilter also look good would it have the Same size pores as the green no toil?

    Also what part number outerwear You are using? as i also contacted outerwear but they told me they dont have one for the WRR. Im about to order a custom one from them.

    UniFilters are bit more free flowing that the NoToils IMHO.

    Don't use Outerware (Do use underwear though!). Filter skins I use = http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com/10205/i/msr-filter-skins

    Ive had dust go right through a no-toil filter,two days in a row after changing filters at night.

    It seems if a waterhole is encountered and then dust, the filter oil is compromised,I use regular filters and oil now.

    This bike has only been out for going on 6 years...many people in the industry mistake it for the F, and quote wrong parts. I alost ordered the wrong one too the first time and then saw the picture and realized it looks nothing like the stock filter.

    This is the one you want...I personally like the pre oiled ones..just makes life easier:

    Thanks for the link, If you have used a outerwear Filter how to they compare.

    Which No toil as they have a green one also

    Do you know if that one and the green one are the exact same foam. If the pores are the same size or which one will trap more dust.

    I already have the green one as I order it without to much research, but is there a better one I will have to get it. The dust here is super fine.

    Still waiting for the cage

    I like the no toil pre oiled filters.

    they are so cheap i dont even bother cleaning filters anymore , just buy a new one.

    I always hit a new one with an extra spray of oil though , they feel like they are lacking a bit right out of the package.

    Got my Seat Concepts package today, which means I'll be installing it this weekend. Looks good, well made, and was shipped quite quickly.

    Nice folks to deal with.

    I got the low, black/blue sides, gripper.

    I'm thinking about picking up a SuperMoto wheelset from Warp9 to allow quick switching from 17/21 knobbies to 17/17 SMs. Anybody done this?

    Am I correct in thinking that it's way easier to swap back and forth with Warp9s than go for the WRR/WRX setup (due to front caliper, front disc size, fork guards, etc.)?

    Is it odd that the WR250R front wheel on this page lists a 240mm rotor, despite the fact that I believe stock rotor is 250mm?

    Looking for any guidance pro- or con- before I pull the trigger.

    Daz..I have gotten the pre-oiled ones and sometime they are green and sometimes they are orange....just different colored foams is all, as far as I know.

    When one of my buds competes in club enduro's, he gets "coupons" for half off No Toil flters. We each buy a couple at a time.....save the time to bother to clean them. I think I have about 3-4 in the " need to clean bucket". :lol3

    I don't do enduro's..but I do hare scrambles every now and again....we get no coupons. :cry:rofl

    I'm not really answering your question, but I have X and R wheels and swap back and forth quite a bit. I've got the swap down to about 30 minutes if I don't dilly dally around and stay focused. That includes the front caliper and bleeding. I run 47T on both, so I don't have any issues with the chain length either.

    Pics of both setups are in my sig link.

    Not so, dude. There are green foam filters and orange foam filters.

    My bad ... mine is yellow-ish until you put the green oil on it and it goes (miraculously) green!

    I am trying to find a master link for the stock chain and apparently they don't exist. I really don't want to chuck a perfectly good chain, but I hardly want to wait until it wears out to change my gearing (just got my WR and it only has 1600 miles on it). Has anyone found and installed a master link that works for the OEM chain besides the "Professional 520V O-ring" that has become unobtainium?

    Unfortunately I am not at home right now so i can't tell you what brand master link i found but I did have the same experience and managed to find one with exactly the same dimensions. If you split yours, take the broken link around to some shops and you should be able to find one.

    Do you also have a reference for the pre oiled ones for wr250r/x (i'm lazy too)? I just can't seem to find it (for instance http://www.motosport.com/dirtbike/NO-TOIL-PREOILED-DUAL-STAGE-AIR-FILTER#alsoofferedfor only shows yz and wrf)

    That part number is the pre oiled ones.

    Actually, I looked up on NoToil's site or the part number for the non preoiled part number and it comes up as the same number...180-46....typo on their site somewhere. :huh

    Thanks. DID emailed me back to tell me I'm hosed as far as their parts go (nothing they currently make will fit), so it's good to know something will work. I figured there had to be an RK or some other brand that ended up the same size. I actually have a section of the same chain from a different bike, so if/when I find out what link fits I'll try to get it added to the specs & information thread.
