    I've seen a few cool looking ones around... I am thinking of the sickbikeparts one. Do they do much... and any other suggestions.

    I would like to say that filters are no big thing

    but -- that just would not be true

    it's amazing how much road dirt we pick up

    I just steam cleanned my MB the other day

    figuring some of that junk -- sand, dirt and whatever -- would have ended up in engine

    into carb -- onto rings -- especially since my filter faces to the front

    ride that clean THING

    I should rephrase that... do performance filters do much?

    Yes... your motor needs oxygen and the more that flows easily into it the better. Take the aircleaner off and take a squirt around the block you should see the difference. (i dont condone doing this for lengthy periods) If you get a high flow aircleaner you will get a very slight increase in performance, your best also popping a tuned pipe on the motor to benefit from the increased flow rate :)

    P.S Any cleaner off a pocket bike will fit too, tiz what we used on my big bros china motor under 10 bucks from the local pocketbike shop :)
