dr650 filter cleaning

Postby Mick » Wed Jan 30, 2013 5:21 pm

so was doing the normal clean up of my dr after some off road riding and checked out this filter its kinda in need of a good clean and was wondering how to do it. It comes off easy enough but still difficult to get to the foam also should i oil this filter as well

Hey Mick, I replaced mine with this:

You will find all of the details half way down this page along with too many other farkles for the DR

http://www.procycle.us/bikepages/dr650.html#up123

delivery from these guys is about 7 days and prices are not too bad.
I have kept the original and take it on multi day rides and swap it out when the new one is looking dusty, I just wash them in sopy water and do not oil them but let them air dry very well.

Good luck!

hehe yep 7 days is far too long :imaposer:

i actually got out and washed mine today as you reminded me, washed it in soapy water, blew tru it let it sit in the sun and whacked it back on, then started the rest of an unplanned service as well so bike is now in bits...... :wtf: just for a little filter hahaha!
