I've used the filterskins and was impressed with how much dirt they trapped. However, they were kind of pain to oil, install and clean, so I stopped using them. I've never used the TA dustcover, but I like the idea of a foam pre-filter...SC

Are the pc filterskins not foam?

does it take more effort cleaning the filterskin than it does the filter?

A little off topic (sorry) but does the Twin Air Power Flow Kit need any thing else filter wise or does it double as a backfire screen & filter ?

It seems like the filter has the screen laminated to it. See below text:

"Twin Air PowerFlow Kit for 4-Stroke models: Replace your air-restricting stock backfire screen with our New PowerFlow kit. The kit includes a rigid, lightweight, billet aluminum cage with a special backfire-resistant layer of foam laminated to the inside of the filter."

I started using the filterskins in Dec. on a desert ride in Big Bend. They are great. In the morning I would pull the dirty one off and then pull a clean pre-oiled one out of the bag. I put oil in the bag so that they would stay sticky. After putting the new one on I would take filter cleaner and clean the dirty one and let it dry then put a little oil back on it. I will not run without them now.

The filterskin is made of a T-shirt like material that stretches over your foam filter like a sock. It's not hard to clean and oil, but I'm lazy and didn't really see the need to add the extra step. I have a couple of extra filters that I keep oiled and ready to go in ziploc bags when I need to change out...SC
