    This is a new era of Air Filtration, JOIN IT!!!

    It was just abut time, far too many customers asked us to develop an Air filter with our superior technology and the same or superior protection of the original paper one, it took us an extencive study to achieve what we do best, ULTIMATE TECHNOLOGY

    we have designed the ULTRA 4 washable Air Filter

    1. ULTRA Protective with 30-40 microns and a very high BETA Ration outmatching the OEM paper filters in efficiency and specs
    2. ULTRA Performing the much better Air Flow will allow a better engine response and a new sprint in your driving
    3. Ultra Economic from now on, no more filter changes, expensive solvent cleaning, oiling or spray, simply air blow or light soap, it will be ready for mounting in a matter of minutes clean as new and it's totally ENVIRORMENT FRIENDLY
    4. Ultra Long Lasting the high density omogeneous matrix is robust and will not loose its integrity even after many washing, no cotton thread will get free, no faom paricles will enter the combustion chamber while the filter disintegrates, this filter will keep its' great charachteristics FOR EVER.

    Our relentless research for MAXIMUM PROTECTION for your motorcycle, maintainance cost TOTAL ELIMINATION, and continuous product creation and evolution has taken anothe step ahead with this REVOLUTIONARY Air Filter.

    Whatever your bike configuration has, OEM exhaust and engine management, After Market parts and new EFI maps, if you are lookig for the maximum protection in every condition and ultra cost reduction this is YOUR Air Filter.

    We focused in a better riding experience, NOT JUST on the Race Track Only peak power, better tourque and smoother engine run and, being part of our mission, total engine protection and maintainance cost elimination.

    As for now, we have ready for sales the model for

    ALL BMW R1200 AC produced from 2002 till 2013 GS, RT, GSA, RS, ST, RT, R, and the newest AC like for example the R nine T range, Pure, Urban GS, Scrambler, Racer.

    I have been asked if these filters are any good in off-road

    the "dry" matrix will not attract any dust or insects, mud will simply dry and fall at the bottom of the air box, the superior filtration level will protect your bike much better than the original paper filter, and the easy cleaning procedure will see you up and running in a matter of minutes.

    if you have any question, feel free to contact me :)

    So these are cleanable and reusable and yet do not need to be oiled, wow!
    That's awesome.

    So is the best cleaning method:
    saturate it with dish soap, let it soak in, then flush with warm/hot water to remove all soap/dirt?

    Will spray cleaning agents affect it like Simple Green then flush with hot water to purge clean?

    Will you produce Vstrom filter eventually??
    The Vstrom filter takes some time to get to (seat & body work come off), so you better always have a new filter ready to go just in case you've done all that work.

    If you could easy clean up your filter and reuse every time that would be awesome.

    The Vstrom is used for alot for long tours and so not needing to pack extra filters & having a easy to clean reusable filter on the road (w/o having to bring spray oil) would be huge!

    So dust will not hold in the filter like a paper filter. Does that mean you go longer between cleanings as the ingested dust it sitting at the bottom of your air box vs trapped in the filter? Great.

    Sounds like the flip side you need to take some time cleaning the bottom of your air box as the dirt is left in it vs trapped in the filter like others.

    Hi @eakins

    thank you for your post,

    well, mostly it will only need a gentle blow, from "inside" out, should you need to clean it fro moskitos or anything "organic" best way is a mild soap with clean water basin, let it soak for some 20-30 minutes depending on your time, otherwise gently moving inside the water, gentle shake will remove 90% of the water, gentle blowing with fresh air and ready to go

    Spray cleaning has solvents, we develop this kind of media to be totally Environment Friendly, if we were in Germany I'd recommend you to use Frosh total 100% ECO soap too :)

    :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

    use as little soap as possible, it's not gonna stick :) mostly a gentle air blow will remove 97% of all trapped dust/dirt :)

    the filter has a much better air flow than original but with a much better filtration efficiency, which means that will allow a better "power" and at the same time longer intervals

    usually, bigger debris will drop at the bottom of the airbox, dust will stratify on the filter itself, but also remember, the total absence of "sticky" oil will make all type of cleaning a real piece of cake.

    as for the V-Strom, I've been told there are plenty of different ones, which model are you referring to?

    edit
    <<you can tell I'm a KTM Fanatic !!!! there are two versions, one from 2002 till 2017 for the "old" 1000 and all 650, and than another one for the latest 1000, right? do forgive an old orange guy ahahah>>


    thank you again

    cheers

    sorry that took me sooooo long, too much to do

    [​IMG]

    enjoy the article

    here the link to the blog :)

    https://blog.guglatech.it/en/articl...lutionary-ultra-4-air-filters-for-motorcycles

    [​IMG]





    You may ask yourself what is the first picture all about, well, it's a collection of the available Air Filtration Technology that you have on your bike, unless you're one of the SMART riders who already implemented a Guglatech ULTRA 4 air filter on your bike.

    [​IMG]

    Good on YER!!!!

    As for the rest of you, let me explain what, and why, is on the picture.

    Let's state the obvious, there are flat and thick examples of Air filtration technology:

    • Paper filtration, namely the vacuum cleaner paper bag filter
    • Cotton, a nice used gym sock
    • Foam, a brand new dish washing sponge
    • Flat grid, my beloved tea sieve.
    Enclosed in the picture you have all the technology that is still used on any kind of vehicles with internal combustion engines, but for one, the Guglatech Deep 3D Air filter Matrix ULTRA4

    NDR, all the following microscope pictures have the same magnification of 55 to allow the best perception on how they are build.


    Paper filters are well known for being very good at particulate retention, it is, like all type of paper products, produced simply compressing down a mat of plant fibers, therefore, it is not homogeneous.

    [​IMG]

    As you can see, some areas are really dense, some others have holes, a good paper filter would achieve a flow of 870 l/(m²*s), while namely paper would filter around 40-45 microns.

    The gym sock, well, the market is redundant with different brands proposing the same Cotton based technology, warp and weft of cotton threads, here the thing gets interesting.

    [​IMG]

    Yes, you can see the holes between the threads, and yes, the holes are pretty big, holes as big as 400x700 microns, the overlapping of many strata, in this case a street application of three layers, will try to make sure not too many holes are simply passing-through channels. No need to say more, right?

    Oh, airflow, almost forgot, a good street three layer Cotton filter will allow around 11.800 l(m²*s), while a top race filter two layers 12.500 l(m²*s)

    Now my favorite dish washing sponge, for dish washing obviously :)

    [​IMG]

    Well, is not that the situation is any better, we still have big passages, as big as 450 microns in some cases, hopefully not aligned.

    All this too allow a "scarce" 7.800 l(m²*s) race open ones.

    I am sure that you ALL know that filtration obtained with Cotton and Foam filters is due to the special Oil used to impregnate both medias and trap particles, like in FLYPAPER, and this is a really big problem.

    You see, until a filter based on "oil trapping" is "soiled" properly, it will allow big to "huge", comparatively speaking, particles to go by.

    Here an example, dusty road, Italy, 2600 km, after full service with branded original product of a premium brand Cotton Sport/Street Filter


    [​IMG]

    Well you would say JOLLY GOOD, erm, not so much,

    [​IMG]

    Fine and middle sized dust particle went through the filter inside the AIRBOX, and THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.

    Plenty of air, really far too much, and at the same time plenty of dust too, you tell me.

    Both Cotton and Foam based filters belong to the 3D layer filtration technology, let's talk about 2D filtration technology.

    Least but not last, my trusted tea leaves sieve, the only 2D technology example in the lot/market.

    In this case magnification is only 10x, and yet you can see what kind of holes we are talking about

    [​IMG]

    The grid in this case is smaller and more precise, you can see plenty of technology here, but still, the holes will let particle really big through, plus is a flat surface, and dry technology.

    Air flow here is something out of a magic book : 16.700 l(m²*s) !!!! amazing for sure, but 100 microns particles are really big chucks and stones to let reach your combustion chamber.

    But, do you really need up to 18 times more air flow than the original air filter was designed to allow? 18 times?? really?? with the stoichiometric ratio for petrol 4 cycle engine is roughly 14:1....... really that much air? No stratification, building up of whirlpools disrupting the necessary "calm" pressurized air front and so on.

    So, why is all like this, why although is clear that protection is NOT anymore the main focus of such products, why nobody is focusing on in instead of "selling" the last achievable "hp"?

    Well, I do not know, what I know is that it is NOT our way.

    We started focusing on maximum protection for fuel systems, and it is obvious that we want to achieve the same also in air filtration, what else??

    But how do you design a good filter? What is the first step? Well, obviously is the GOAL!!

    We wanted to achieve 4 big steps

    • BETTER PROTECTION than the OEM paper one, the smaller the particle allowed the better for the engine
    • BETTER/BEST AIR FLOW allowed , better throttle responsiveness with best torque and top power combined
    • GREEN AND ECONOMICAL maintenance, no oil, no solvents, no pollution, simply fresh water, environment friendly
    • ETERNAL life, no need to pollute with further waste
    And how do you achieve it? Simple, with more technology, research and only the best material available, always.

    This, is how our 3D matrix looks like

    [​IMG]
    • You can see the holes are not so scarce like in the paper one, way smaller than any of the other technology, roughly 35-40 microns, dry technology, from "second one" achieving the best filtration and keeping it until simply air blowing or fresh water cleaning will be necessary.
    • Air flow? We did our best, 2700 l(m²*s), three time better than paper, three times worse of the "last in class" of the other off-the shelf competitors, and yet our filter will allow a much better engine rev. keeping it safe and clean.
    • This filter has been designed to take you around the world and back, to the longest tour of your life, for your commuting and/or simply rides, not for race on the track, we have designed a real tough media for real tough life.
    We have not talked about BETA ratio..... this will come in the second part of the article.


    stay tuned
