Does anyone know of a better filter, guess you could call it the pre filter, on my 1000 xtz there is a filter behind the drivers seat, to me it is basically junk doesn't do much but sure gets dirty fast. Any way doesn't look like it will last much longer. Wondering what you guys are using? Maybe theres a filter sock out there that would fit? It isn't very big.

I used a [email protected] For my stock filter and a UNI For my pre-filter.

Does the uni-filter use a sock?

I am running a K&N in the air box. But want to stop some more at the pre filter. The pre filter seems very coarse and doesn't do much. Was thinking about a finer filter there but also don't want to restrict air flow.

Do you think a nylon stocking would work as a sock?

Now thats a possibility RD, hadn't thought of that one. Was thinking of getting some material like a filter sock or even a bigger filter sock and have the wife help me make one on the sewing machine. But don't know about airflow that way. I kinda like your idea. It gets pretty dusty down here in the desert. Thanks

I've used them in the past, hold up pretty good, and are cheap to replace!

Do you run your pre-filter oiled or dry.....

I've been looking at some of the air filters they use in Desert Racing / off road racing ... some really cool filters in that world. thinking about attaching one behind the top roll bar with tubing down into the air box/system ... saw some in person at the Parker race a week ago .. some nice stuff and many sizes to look at

might go to some of those sites and look around ... the one that caught my eye so far is about 15" long [+/-] and about 6 or 8" round aluminum and tig welded ..with a really interesting filter inside.

don't have the link right here in Arizona , but do some looking around ..

here is one I've been looking at .. several to see here

I use a UNI, oiled with chainsaw oil. The main filter stays very clean, even on super dry dusty, gravel roads.I used a 2" 90 degree PVC to adapt it to my inlet in front of the box. I use Dawn to wash it, then roll it in chainsaw oil and wipe off the excess.

Before I added the pre-filter, my main filter was dirty after a hard ride. I'd have to clean it weekly. Now with the pre-filter, I can go monthly on the main filter. I kept a spare pre-filter and switch as needed.

for those with the foam pre filter behind the passenger seat, I just got an Outerwares prefilter to slip over this. Looks like it would be easy to maintain and it is water proof, so they claim. I'll keep you posted.

Pre filters are the way to go. I run my K&N dry, and pull it after 2-3 rides. Blow it out, and put it back on. I check the main filter monthly and the air in side has very little dust in the tract. Engine side is spotless!

Don't blame you on the snorkels! Too nice looking to cut up. That is the rapid response clutch right?
