Cleaning an air filter

I have an ITG Performance filter that I am using in my 748. With the pollen season upon us I'd like to clean out the runners and airbox as well as cleaning the air filter itself. I know I can wash the filter with water and a little soap and allow it to dry then add some oil to the filter before reinstalling. Are all filter oils the same even though there are different types of filters on the market? Should I look for something from ITG specifically? Do I soak the filter or apply a light coating?

I just cleaned the filter on my Kawi last weekend...followed the instructions from the service manual: 1. Remove Filter 2. Remove loose dirt with compressed air 3. Rinse filter in solvent a few times 4. Squeeze dry, dry with compressed air 5. Saturate a paper towel with 30W oil, and lightly tap oil onto foam side of filter. The solvent insures the old oil comes out with the dirt. The new coating of oil is VERY light..

Pollen filter


The filter will clean most of the pollen and other particles up. Just be sure to clean or replace the filter regularly. Some modern air conditioners will let you know when they think the s dirty and needs to be replaced usually located in the front if u have allergies id say wear a mask and if u talking about a car it's under dashboard u can't miss it

IRobot Mirra 530 Tips & Tricks


Tips from iRobot Resources:


Run Mirra only when in the water.
Mirra has a very strong motor system that needs to stay cool for optimal performance and life. Your pool water around the motor helps keep it cool during operation. Therefore Mirra should not be run outside of the pool due to the risk of overheating the motor.

Choose the correct filter canister.
Use the Large Debris Filter Canisters when the pool contains a significant amount of large debris (leaves, insects, etc.) and when the pool is opened for the season or cleaning during the Fall. The Fine Filter Canisters are ideal for filtering small debris such as algae, sand, silt and bacteria and for regular pool cleaning maintenance during the peak of your pool season.

Keep Mirra working at peak performance.
Mirra uses the powerful force of water pumped through its filter to clean and circulate pool water and to propel itself around your pool. It pumps and filters more than a gallon of water every second! Clean the filter canisters regularly by removing them from Mirra, emptying its contents and hosing it out. Keeping the filter canisters clean will ensure optimal cleaning results and strong pump suction.

Allow the motor to cool before removing the robot from the pool.
Mirra's power supply has an automatic timer that shuts Mirra off after each cleaning cycle. Wait 20 minutes before removing Mirra from the pool to allow the pump motor to cool. Turn the power supply off and unplug it from the electrical outlet before removing Mirra from the pool.

748 dies 15 minutes into ride


as soon as I got down here the bike started dying about 15 to 20 minutes into a ride. This bike has never given me a single problem prior to moving. It seems like something electrical to me but I really have no idea where to begin. I'm guessing (wild shot in the air here) that some component is getting hot and failing. I could walk downstairs and start it up now and it would start fine and then fifteen minutes later it will die and not start until it has cooled down and sat for a bit. This has happened four times now. I keep it in the neighborhood since I am expecting it to shut down and I end up pushing it home. I've drained the gas and replaced it checked all of the connectors I could get my hands onto. I had some crud on the positive terminal that I could see glowing, so I cleaned all of that up. I'm planning to tear the engine down soon anyways, but I'd like to know what is causing this before I get started. If anyone has experienced this, I would appreciate any info. Thanks guys. Relevant Info: 1998 748 ~20k miles Sil 1/2 system, ITG filter, DP chip,You're throwing darts instead of troubleshooting. When the bike is dead, begin the diagnosis by determining which of the three required elements are missing; i.e., air, gas, or spark. Once you determine this, then systematically trace upstream from the engine, using a good shop manual which describes the systems. Most manuals, like Haynes or Clymers, have a troubleshooting section which may help you once the missing element is identified.,,,

Red light won't go off


To RESET the Electronic Filter Check:
When the filter check light remains on,it is time to check/clean the HEPA-Type
filters and reset the filter check,if needed. With the unit powered on,insert the tip of a ball-point pen or
paperclip into the hole next to the LED filter check light and hold for approximately 5 seconds until the
light turns off (Fig 5). Depending upon your individual usage (environment and hours used),you may need
to check and clean the filters more or less frequently. If the HEPA-Type filters are cleaned before the filter
check light turns on,the filter check should be reset at the same time.
These cleaning intervals are intended as guidelines only. Performance of any filter media is dependent
upon the concentration of contaminates going through the system. High concentrations of contaminates
such as dust,pet dander and smoking will reduce the useful performance of the filter.
NOTE:The HEPA-Type filters are not washable.
