Yep. Foam filter, and if you don't want to get greasy shit everywhere everytime and everyplace, use gasket goo or similar silicone product.

Spray the mating surfaces with WD or similar and run a quick bead of the black goo and then plonk the filter element into the frame on top of the goo.

I give it a little time (10 mins) to go into pre-set condition before clamping the 4 screws 1/2 way down down.
Give it another 20 mins and give another 1/4 turn or so.

The WD spray stops the goo from sticking to the element and airbox for easy removal and as the goo had never been maximally compressed given that it was allowed to partially set prior to initial clampdown compression, the filter can be removed, cleaned and replaced with confidence that the seal remains integral so long as minor increases in the torque required to seat the seal are facilitated each time of service.
What you've got is a nice spongy gasket which is clean, dry and seals completely.



Works 4 me

Its one of those things, I chose the evo cover and didn't want to spend more money on another option and apart from labour the mod didn't cost me anything really just left over scraps in the shed.

KTM use the 690 to pre run at Finke and they use standard air boxes. Somehow I dont think you need to get any more air into your bike.

Well done Andy for nutting that out
I've actually written a letter to KTM asking for a refund for my Evo cover as the bike shop wouldn't give me my money back because I had it more than a month.
The bike shop did offer to get me another at a reduced price to which I replied...well you can guess the reply

Am I allowed to talk tyres ?

If so I am running a 606 rear with a 952 front find this a very good allround set up but i am thinking maybe a mx71 front with the 606 or a hp4 front and rear {dont know much about michy's } - I am happy with the 606 rear but I do feel the 952 washout at times on the dirtroads and it is a skinny tyre- the terrain i ride is hard dry dusty dirtroads with rocky rutted single track and rainforest single with occasional mud track thrown in for good measure and a fair bita tar so the harderwearing knobbies are my choice not 50/50 tyres -

reading the above I think the 606 rear is right maybe change the front only {def not 606 front } any comments

If I have upset anyone by not reading 1654 pages trying to find what im after ignore this post

I used the HP4 Starcross on the front and the 908 rally raid on the back of mine they worked OK. Used 3 sets in 26000 km. Fronts weren,t worn out but changed them anyhow.

Not a bridgestone fan didn't like the gritty that came on the crf - but i did ride the oxley two weeks ago with some sportsbikes and the guy up front had a bridgestone slick of sorts on and it was the stickiest tyre i have ever felt- seen two bike crashes on that trip one of them was abovementioned mate
