Hi,

Another video to add to the pile of my how-to's.

Good advice Marcin & although doing this will help, the air filters for these bikes in a stock form are paper based, cleaning them in this way has a very limited effect. Much better to replace them (if finances allow) with an after market cotton based filter so that they can actually be cleaned, re-oiled and reinstalled using a formulated cleaning kit such as this or similar.

I have done that as well, it's not the right thing to do but it certainly can be done if your careful.

Good video Marcin If you did that on a regular basis, it would keep it in tip top condition and possibly prolong the life of the filter, saving a few quid in the process.
ps. I've done it with the hoover before now (obviously the opposite way around)

Cheers all,

I stand corrected. I missed the fact that they're paper
But the learning I got from it now is priceless, thank you.

It's also worth mentioning what was said in addition to me, that cleaning the filter as I did, with the intake exposed next to me, could lead to particles getting inside the engine, something that we'd all like to avoid if we can.

Haven't thought about this one either at the time. Another lesson learned.

M.

Yeah I did notice that you were a bit busy with the blower a little to close to the intake for my liking but I didn't want to discourage you. The main thing to remember is that if ever you take the filter off is to seal off the intake with some cling film or any other way you see fit. However Marcin you were still right to clean the filter either from inside with a blow or as Sim said from outside with a suck. I don't think it makes a huge difference but it does make a difference, so it is still worth doing.
