Unifilter

OK unifilter have now finished there final product, I have one in my bike now and am very happy with it.
Here is the final design.
Here you can see both filters the inner has the spring and the trumpet from the TB fitted on the left and you can see the right side with the spring ready to be fitted.




Once you have both Trumpets in the inner filter just tighten the reusable cable ties up so the filter is snug. Place the front Trumpet on and lock in to place and repeat with the rear Trumpet.


Now fit the orange outer filter over the inner and lock the velcro strap.



Everything else is the same as my first post in K&N filter thread. These filters are now in production.

By the way that the orange filter fits over the yellow one, It looks as if not all the air will be double-filtered - i.e. some of the induction air will be able to pass through the yellow, without having to pass through the orange. Is this so?

Why is there a filter for the crank-case breather - there is a valve that only allows air to be exhaled from the breather, not inhaled?

In OE form, I understood that the breather exits into the air-box in order to prevent exhaled oily air entering the atmosphere (at least, before being processed by the cylinders).

Do UNI have dealers in Europe?

Thanks.

The crank case breathers don't have the one way valves anymore (they used to be on the early 950's i think). So, the crank case breathe both ways. The SAS line only sucks air from the box - unidirectional. With the stock airfilter, these two lines are on the clean side of the filter, so they breathe only clean air in and out.

But with the Unifilter, there is no clean side for the SAS and crank case breather lines anymore. Hence the need to fit a filter for them in order to avoid dust getting breathed in to these lines.

When did they remove the valve on the crank-case breather?

boulder's 990 R (?) has one in the pics above - and that's a pretty late bike. They were still fitting the valve to the 2010 990 ADV.

You are correct about the SAS, but I didn't ask about that. Many people - including me - remove that stuff. Especially those people who work on their own bikes.

Thanks.

Just being clear,, do you run this setup in the air box? Or open...

And Is there a pic of the valve? I'm cleaning up a weird Canisterectomy/SAS removal on my bike from the PO..

Would you happen to have the URL for it on their website? I searched all over that site earlier today and all I found for the LC8 was the pre filter.

Hi, Myles from Unifilter Australia here. Firsstly I would like to thank Boulder for lending us his bike.

I thought I would help with the questions you all have.

Firstly we will have the filter available from Thursday 14th March. We will list them on our new product page on our wesite www.uniflow.com.au as soon as they are in stock.

For Australian Customers you can order from your local KTM dealer or our website (Please support your local dealer where ever possible)

Overseas customers you can order direct from our website only. We don't have any dealers outside of Australia. We are a sperate company to UNI Filter in the USA.

The Part# "NU 1425 KIT"

Price AU$92.50

Kit includes 2 stage foam filter, 2 x Trumpet seals, 2 x crank case breather pods & a new seal for the air box to make it water tight.

The filter is efectively 2 pod filters that are joined. The internal foam is hollow between the stacks to create a still air chamber. two springs sit on the original trumpets to give support. The filter attaches with re-usable cable ties. The outer cover wraps around the underside of the main filter between the trumpets and secures with velcro tabs. Easy to install and remove for servicing.

Both layers should be oiled.

This filter is for the 990 only. We will be making seperate versions for the 950 and 1190 as soon as we can get our hands on them.

If you have any questions please ask. You can also contact me on info@uniflow.com.au

Cheers Myles
