O i got it now. Didnt realize the hoses actually plugged into the blue thing. I thought it just held the hoses in place.

Ive since cleaned it but it was spotless on the inside of the filter with the exception of some dirt particles.


then it was not spotless, dirt obviously got past

I was saying that there wasnt anything out of the ordinary. Just some very fine dust in the intake boot which is impossible to stop from getting through.

agreed, dust whether fine or not should not be getting thru...

Well an airfilter simply does not stop all dirt particles from going through whether you like it or not. But it was not a large amount of dirt that got through is all that im sayin. I put in a clean airfilter before every ride. This was a twin airfilter with pj1 filter oil and belray along the rim of filter. I also have one of those pc racing airfilter seals...so by no means do i neglect airfilter maintenance. This was a rare occasion for that dirty of a filter. To the airfilter experts...how long before an airfilter is no longer useable?

When it starts falling apart, you will see it start to come apart at the seams, you need to replace it then. Its only like 15 dollars for one so replacing it omce a year is cheap insurance

i have the same bike and the airbox does a decent job at keeping alot of dirt and dust out. That filter looks like its never been cleaned or was dipped in mud. I can run an entire harescramble through horrible conditions and after all that, my filter doesnt look nearly as bad as that

I do know one guy who legitimately did that to a filter in a single race day once. He's Wiz636 on this board, and as I recall it was a Hare Scrambles in Washington state that ran through several miles of volcanic silt. Lots of guys conked out on the course from choked off filters. Wiz and several others lost engines because of it.

And I thought mine looked bad after a D38 Race. :smirk:

how long should filters last before they start to come apart? on my 09, it only lasted 43 hours. but i wash mine after every ride because it gets pretty bad. i think the no toil cleaner might be eating the glue cuz mine fell apart right at the seam.

I assure you it was clean as new when i started..After two hours of berm blastin thats what i got. Ive done all sorts of trail riding with the bike in coal,sand, and mud and resulted in nothing nearly as dirty as the one in the pic.

UPDATE: Well after continously finding dirt in the intake boot and a few valve adjustments, i went searching on where/how this dirt was getting in. I finally found that it was going through the guide that attaches to the intake boot. Some how it wasn't completely sealed all the way around. There was a film of dirt left where it was getting in. I resealed it and i hope this stops the dirt from getting in once and for all.
