My airbox story

I received my bike in early January, when the prevailing wisdom was that KTM had resolved the issue for 2014. The bike had around 4 or 5k miles when the first reports of 2014's having airbox issues started showing up so I told myself....."at least it is under warranty".

My bike has 7700 miles on it today and the airbox looks like the photos others have posted early in this thread. She scored 8% in the leak down test. KTM will be replacing the cylinders, pistons, rings, valves and etc. Their current resolution for the airbox is to install the KTM PowerParts air filter and dust covers for snorkels. The airbox lid is to be sealed with silicone when reassembled.

For sure not in a thread about the airbox.

Since it is such a relatively easy procedure that requires such little time to check and clean the filter, how often are some of you checking and or cleaning the Unifilter. Yes I know it depends greatly on riding conditions. Just some examples would be of benefit. I intend on doing a check after approximately 500 miles of 25% dusty dirt roads and 75% road as a gauge for future maintenance.

They've got to be kidding... who wants to spend 30 min cleaning old silicone off every time you want to check the filter.

My Uni came so wet with oil any grease I would have put on it would have slid right off. I think the pressure of the clamp just let the front of the filter slide right out and start sucking air. I checked and do have the right part #.

What where the symptoms that prompted the leak down test? I went on one very dusty ride and got it installed very quickly after that. It had less than1000 miles.

I returned from a 2000 mile ride and decided it was time to inspect the filter. The inside of the box was dusty like the photos shown early in this thread. I photographed the dirt and took it to the dealer. They performed the leak down test without any argument based on the photos.

The test should take a couple of hours. My bike's score was 8%.

My box looked the same if not worse. I may pull it back apart and have another look now that I have some miles on it.
