Air filter oil....

Recommended Posts

Guest

Ok...I'm gettin' me juevos ready to do an oir filter clean....

Went to my local harley/quad dealer and he had me purchase the No-Toil kit (Cleaner, Air Filter Oil, Rim Grease)

What I've read is that the No-Toil cleaner will NOT clean

other oils off air filters....just the No-Toil oil....

So, I've also read that others have cleaned their air filters

in the kitchen sink, used gasoline, or used flash solvent....

Looking for advice as I've mentioned I'm very mechanically

DECLINED! :wink:

I'm going to wash the air box seal in the sink and give it a good dry....

One more thing......No-Toil or Bel-Ray for filter oil?

Thanks!

USE KAROSINE!! NOT GASOLINE. karosine isnt as flammable as gas.

we jus soak ours in karosine,(we put the karosine in old dog bow. since mom is a cleanfreak) dry them with the air compressor, and spray some wd40 on em.then throw em back in.

Gasoline is usually more readily available and it works perfect. I soak mine in gas, ring it out and let it dry. I use PJ1 foam filter oil. A little axle grease on the rim and you're good to go. Of the 2 oils you mentioned I would go Bel-ray.

Ditto!!!!!! Been using Gas to Clean Foam Filters for Over 30 yrs.....NO PROBLEMS......

Good Luck!!!!!!

Oh,,,,I thought if you used a No Toil Filter you had to use the Oil and Cleaner as well???? Ill have to ask my Buddy.....He says he just puts his in the Washing machine :laugh:

I use SimpleGreen, it cuts the oil, doesn't stink or explode in my face. [OK I'm sensitive about that hehe.] I prefer K/n Spray oil- if you buy the kit with the cleaner in it, it's not a BAD cleaner, I just have better luck with simplegreen. If I were still married I would NEVER bring gasoline into the house....:realmad:

Yeah..im with bot...its all done in the garage.

Some of those oil cleaners dont work as well as the can says...

The oil is also not easy to get off your hands so use rubber gloves.

Use gas or simple green.

I love the smell of simple green after you use it to wash your quad and it heats up. lol :laugh:

Hubby usually leaves me to clean the filters :rolleyes:

      Hello all!
      A friend of mine has this particular 4 wheeler. It sat in the garage for about a year, so I redid the carb, cleaned the tank and installed a new petcock. So far, it cranks right away whether its button started or pull started. So I have a couple of questions concerning the carb and air filter.
      1. Is this a cvk32 250 or 350 carb? As the air fuel ratio adjustment is different according to a cvk document I read. What's your adjustment setting? 2 whole turns and a 1/8 or 2 whole turns and a 1/2? Comparing the old setting on the carb to the new setting (and where the needle sits now), makes me think it was way off before. 
      2. The Air filter cover, gasket, air filter and plate element are all missing. So I was thinking of removing the hose that goes to the air box and put one of those K&N style looking filters and be done with it. So my question is.. will I have to readjust Air Fuel screw or just adjust Idle?
      It's just going to be driven around the neighborhood.
      Thanks in advance for any info or help. Y'all stay safe out there!

      Does a US made grease gun fit Metric zerk fittings, or do I need a conversion to fit them?  Thanks in advance.

      Just got a new to me, 99 Kodiak w/ plow and an extra set of tires for dirt cheap. I'm curious where you guys purchase your parts for your older ATV's? Google is great to find parts, but I'm hoping you guys have some stores, online, that you prefer on a recommendation basis. I've already purchased my tune-up items, but the brakes need some work and I'll likely end up having to replace the steering stem bearing, front CV axles and a few other things down the road.

      I would like to hear who uses what to clean there ATV’S. 
      I’ve always been a fan of simple green and it’s always worked well but with this new property and the crazy black mud and clay that’s there  I have to say the simple green is not cutting it. 

      So from cleaning  right after a ride to cleaning them when you find one in a barn I would like to hear what everyone does and what your recommendations. 
      I’m looking to try something new.

      What is everyone's choice for differential grease? And does anyone have an idea of capacity for 2007 Sunl (Chinese)250 CC ATV as I do  not have the owners manual with specs. Thanks for the input.
