It was a cheap flimsy piece of junk. The stocker is a much better design.
He ended up cleaning the stock filter rather then risking useing the preoiled unit.

So, I searched here and learned about Race Ready pre-oiled filters. I order (5) for my WR and 300exc -- have yet to use them. Their web site compares them to twin-air, as if they are good -- They will have to be REALLY bad for me to endure the cleaning/oiling process again.

I will try them even if I hear they are considered average.
My main concern was the foam and how long it would hold up.
I'm an average Joe so it would work for me!

Ready Racing Filters only cost $9.00 a filter I don't have any problem tossing these when dirty
Yep, more crap for the landfill.
Takes me about 3 minutes to clean a filter. A little detergent and about $.35 worth of filter oil. It would take me an hour to go to the store (or 20 minutes to buy online). Not too sure I understand the convienence here, even if they were as good as reusable filters!
just me 2 cents...........

Do a search for Uni and No Toil. There have been threads in the past about this.

I just purchased the last two that Rocky Mtn had for my model. They seem to be having a hard time keeping them in stock.

I just installed my first one on my KTM 300exc. If they are perfectly oiled, I've been using too much Bel Ray oil on my stocker TwinAir filter -- the Maxima does not seem as sticky as the Bel Ray. They are not as thick/foamy as the KTM's TwinAir, but seem thicker than the Yam's stocker. The KTM sucks far more air; always has dirtier filters, so I'll see -- all seems OK.

I have been using HOT HOT water with lots of Simple Green in a small bucket, soak the filter, rub a little, rinse & repeat. Then rinse with clean hot water, and let dry. The Simple Green removes all the dirt, but leaves the filter oil there!!!! Im using Maxima FFT Oil, and Twin Air filter. Works great.
Any better ideas out there??

Anybody that would clean anything with gas, must have a death wish.
Twin Air makes air filter cleaner....... for a reason.
I go to a fuel and oil distributer "Nelson Petrolium" and buy 5 gallons of low flashpiont solvent. They pump it out of a barrel. Works great on belray types of filter oil.
On my kids 250f which is almost exclivly ridden on MX tracks all I can say is.
