XCx Uni-Filter

So I ordered and installed the UNI pre air-filter. Pretty straight forward set-up but I opted to remove everything so I could have a peek inside.

So filter takes the place of the useless dirt sucker.


Just having a look around. I like to familiarise myself with the bikes inards.


Snorkel installed.


The airbox bolts to the top of the crankcase AND the throttle bodies


The most work was getting the plastics off.......

So can the pre filter be installed without removing the fuel tank?

Yes. You'll just have to remove the plate and plastic guard. Might be a little tight in there as you have to get the lip pressed inside the airbox.

Tip:

The preflilter is oiled. When you are installing it keep it in a plastic bag (freezer bag works well) as a condom then just slide the bag off once it is in place. It saves getting a lot of crap on your hands and on the inner surfaces of the bike.

Thanks for the information Highriver and K1W1. I ordered mine from Uni Filter Aus, but I just found out they're also available from Touratech here in the states for about $35. With shipping, I think it's a wash, but probably faster from Touratech if you're in the states.

Word from the wise, or the fool... Whichever way you want to look at it. I ordered the UNI from Touratech and paid the shipping. I did not realize the light foam filter would be shipped with a full blown manufacturer product catalog. It may be worth ordering on the phone and asking them to HOLD on the catalog.

It's also important to note that the 2015 XCX airbox tube is round as shown in HighRiver's pictures --- It looks like the one shown on Touratech's website is square where it connects to the airbox.

Thanks for that heads-up mate. I'll make sure to get the Aussie one then or call Touratech and have them verify visually.

That is the 2011-2014 model bike prefilter. Unifilter do not list part numbers on their web site so I guess it will be very important to ensure that any third party you are buying from knows which year model bike you want the item for.

Buy direct and you negate the guessing.

The picture of the Aussie Uni looks round and the Touratech looks square? Am I missing something? Anybody?
