dirt getting past filter
Posted February 21, 2004 - 07:02 AM
I have tried everything I could think of.
-First I was told not to use no toil. I tried maxima fft and there was no difference. Same thin layer of dust on boot passed filter.
- I have had three different filters, No Toil, Uni, and stock Yamaha.
- Next I was told I was not greasing the filter rim enough. I put about an 1/8 Inch layer of grease on the filter rim and I got the same thin layer of dust.
- I have also never seen any signs of dirt on the inside of the filter. I would think if it was coming through the filter oil I would se it on the inside of the filter.
- I have taken apart the air box three times now and sealed the spots where I thought it could be coming through with Yamabond. It sure seems sealed tight to me, but dirt is still coming through some where.
If anyone has seen this happening and/or just has any ideas please reply.
Thank you very much
I have photos , but was not sure how to upload.

Just trying to help resolve it.

In extreme dusty conditions, I have had dust get past the Twinair. On the same trails on the same day/weekend, the factory filter didn't have the problem. Makes sense, too, since the factory filter is bigger and thicker.
IMO, the extra airflow that the aftermarket filters claim is not worth any potential increased wear on the engine. If I were racing, I may feel different.
just my x2 cents

Bagwell- my filters "inner" and "outer" are bonded, so it is impossible to oil one without the other.
But what really blows my mind is, WHY WON'T IT STOP FREAKING SNOWING,AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!

Anyway I think the seal behind the filter to the airbox can leak over time and we should check for signs in the air box boot.
I think good oil and any filter will keep the boot from getting a dust & dirt froming on the inside.
