Seems like the reflective side of the material should be facing toward the heat source which, in this case, would be the engine. I can't tell from Taheoacr's photos whether the material used has reflective material on both sides or just one.

So, if the filter element does not come off off the cage, how are you supposed to oil and clean it properly? I guess it is too late to worry about it now, because I am getting one anyway, but still, wondering why it was not designed with the filter to be removable from the cage.

That is the only reason that I did not order one last night....

So, why is the cage a hurdle for you? Soaking the filter in cleaner and then rinsing it out is impossible with a cage? I would rather deal with a cage than dirt in my engine.

Me too, but coming from the real dirt bike world where all filter elements are removable, it sure makes it easier to deal with both the cleaning and the re-oiling--especially the re-oiling, where the general practice is to squeeze the excess oil out of the foam element. Sort of hard when it is attached to a rigid cage.

Not going to be an easy process to service in the field.

Like I said before, benefits still out weigh the drawbacks.

I know what cleaning dirt bike filters is like, I've had a few I see your point, wringing the oil out could be entertaining but I'm sure a method can be developed. I'm an HVAC guy, so I have a vacuum pump. I've always thought a vacuum bag would be a great method for oiling a filter. Might need to finally try it.

But still i think this foam filter is easier to clean than a more rigid type of airfilter.
like a K&N/DNA/BMC flat panel filter or the DNA/MH airbox filter

Not really a hurdle. Just left some doubt in my mind.

Should work well. I have used this method on bearings with great success.

Cool, not as crazy sounding as I thought Small hand vacuum pump might do the trick.

Sorry, I'm on the road til April. Didn't bring my laptop with the photos. In the picture I have it on the top and bottom. That's only cause I had a whole roll of the stuff. You only want to put on the bottom facing the engine.

On a good note our rider got 10th in the main last week. The week before I join he didn't qualify for it. I must be bringing in the luck.

Spark01,
Please give us a report. Expecially your thoughts on HP gain and "jerky" throttle response.

This is the promotional stuff from CJ's site.
http://www.cjdesignsllc.com/CPRairFilter.html
The most cost effective horsepower gains on the market. About 30.00 to 40.00
Dlls per horsepower compared to 100.00 to 200.00 Dlls for an aftermarket
exhaust.

Dramatically reduces the jerky "On / Off" throttle response of the big twin.
"Mountain roads and tight traffic become a joy again".

Thanks KJ
