These engines are pretty crude and inexpensive, so if there were an engine to run without a filter....that said I personally like to make stuff last and the carb inlet is close to the back tire.....a few grains of sand can grind all your hard work.Ive been riidine my bike for about a year now with out an air filter. If i keep it that way will it mess it up or will it just make its life shorter or neither?
It's made from an Amsoil EaA Air Filter: AMSOIL Ea Synthetic Nanofiber Air Filter (EaA)HEY PABLO, I DID NOT REALIZE YOU STOCKED THAT AIR FILTER. LOOKS LIKE A K&N OR EQUIVELENT FILTER. MAYBE EVEN BETTER!!?? I HAVE AN ORDER LIST MADE OUT FOR 1/2 DOZ OF YOUR PARTS. I WAS WONDERING ABOUT A SMALLER FREE WHEEL CRANK SPROCKET HOOKED UP TO THE JACKSHAFT OUTPUT SPROCKET FOR MORE LOW END STARTING POWER, AND MORE USE OF THE HIGHER GEARS ON THE CASSETTE. I KNOW YOU HAVE A 10% SMALLER SPROCKET. I HAVE NOT INSTALLED MY SHIFT KIT YET. MAY NOT BE NECESSARY TO GEAR LOWER, BUT I AM XXX LARGE!!! IT IS ONLY 60 DEGREES ABOVE ZERO HERE THIS MORNING!! 5 BELOW BK HOME. WITH YOUR AND GHOSTS` SHIFT KIT ETC AND JIM AT CREATIVE ENGINEERING IT LOOKS GREAT FOR MB`ING. AND DON`T FORGET HIKERS` LITTLE HELPERS!!
