Whitehorse Gear Motorcycle Outfitters Filterskins™ Closeout

Hey boys and girls, ever use a Filterskin™? We know it sounds a bit dirty but it's not. It's actually very clean!

Filterskins™ are a stretch sock that covers your air filter. It makes "cleaning" your air filter as fast as changing a sock. Filterskins™ must be oiled first, then they slip over your stock air filter. This size, small, fits KLRs, DRs, XRs, and Yammie Blaster, Breeze and other applications. Fits air filters from 5 to 6 inches in diameter and from 2 to 5 inches long.

No matter how dirtly the riding is, you open the air box, peel off the dirty Filterskin™ and pop a new one in. They weigh almost nothing and take up no room at all. Carry a few with you on an extra dirty or dusty ride and you can renew your air filter any time you like and you can do it fast!

OK we have way too many small Filterskins™. As awesome as they are, they need to go. Normal retail is $11.95 for a package of 3 reusable 'skins. Buy the package of 3 for just $5. Add $2 for First Class US Postal Service delivery for any number of packages as long as stock remains. Any questions? Ring us up! 800.531.1133

This seems like it would really restrict airflow. Do you have any data to suggest otherwise?

Filterskins recommended by expert enduro riders

Very good question. Years of satisfied use by some of the best off-road riders in America say this is the greatest idea since sliced bread. No issues. Massive convenience. On top of the good results, if you think about just how much intake suction a bike engine generates while running, a few thousandths of an inch of oiled cloth isn't going to restrict anything but dirt particles.

We first learned about Filterskins from a man named Dick Alves. He is better known as Denmark Dick (from Denmark, Maine) in knobby-tired circles. Dick and his friend Mike Whitney are right around 70 years old and I think they're still some of the best enduro riders in the country. Think Malcolm Smith. These guys rode in ISDTs in the 1970s with the Pentons, Malcolm Smith, Dick Mann, et al. They've been New England NETRA champs and so on and so forth. These guys are THE experts both on riding and wrenching. They don't say much but when they talk, we listen. A few years ago Dick said, "You should carry Filterskins." So we do.

Dick turned us onto Filterskins™ an American product made by PC Racing after he'd been using them on his KLR all across the Gaspe Peninsula, New Brunswick, Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont. No matter how much dust you load into your airbox, you can just peel off the skin and pop on a new one. Pre-oil them and take 'em along with you. This is the best product most off-road riders never knew they needed. Especially true when riding in very dusty conditions.
