MR 175 Air Cleaner
Posted 17 April 2012 - 03:35 AM
I have a Honda MR 175 with no air cleaner under the seat. The casing is there, just no foam filter.
I have had no luck searching online for this part.
Is there a new alternative available or is there a way to make my own?

Make sure the foam sealing ring around the bottom is in decent shape - in most cases, this means it should be replaced. Use high-density solvent-proof foam if you can find it. The stuff that's used to package semiconductor chips is the right thickness and density, I don't know about solvent resistance.
I used an MT250 filter for a while, but it was slightly too big for the airbox and let dirt through around the bottom (which was probably the sealing ring's fault).

I recently got the bike going and when I opened the seat I found the previous owner had jimmy rigged a rag with tape around it...
