    Sprint Air filter

    Is anyone using a Sprint air filter in their bike? I've read a lot of good reviews and was thinking about getting one. Any info appreciated.
    Thanks

    Rob.

    Re: Sprint Air filter

    I am using a P08 Sprint.
    My bike by and large lives on track.
    I chose the P08 as it, on paper, has better filtration than its competitors, whilst flowing more freely than OEM, it claims.

    I have zero proof that its true. But I would still buy it over the competition.

    The oem filter is proven to be very good with excellent filtration. So your money maybe better spent elsewhere.

    Re: Sprint Air filter

    So I was pulling the bike about earlier.
    Whipped out the filter.

    Lots of large debris caught...



    But there is a lot of oil mist debris, my first thought its from the SAS...
    Anyone had similar on the 17+

    Inside the trumpets is ok.


    Wiped off the cover.

    yep always seem to get oil vapour in my airbox,it's not a bad thing really(as long as not excessive) as helps catch any fine stuff that gets through the filter.yours is in need of a good clean though..

    Air Filter

    There’s generally always a bit of oil residue in the airbox. You really need to clean your air filter though!

    Fear not, filter cleaning started after the picture.

    How do you take the airbox off? Is it just the 4 bolts here?

    Re: Sprint Air filter

    The filter can't have anything to do with oil residue, but maybe some of the dirt. Unless I've been following someone spraying it out the back. The crankcase breather system is what blows oil back into the intake.

    Thanks for the thread as I do have a slight deflection in my filter so I will cure that with the tips in there...and will consider changing.

    Re: Sprint Air filter

    You do have the same powder I had inside. With stock there is no powder at all. Yes oil vapors can be found inside the airbox.
    Check also https://www.s1000rrforum.com/forum/v...filters-7.html
    and you also have the problem described in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPgvUI3N6Zw

    The filter is a bit bent on the sides. There is a new version of this filter.
