How do i clean my air filter wr 400
remove the side cover
undo the nut in the middle and remove filter
take the foam of the frame
clean with a solvent, kero or similar
clean again in detergent and water
continue until spotless
use a air cleaner oil from a bike shop
put some oil on the foam and squeeze until oil is completly over filter( will be all the same color)
can do this inside a plastic bag to save the mess
fit back on frame
place a smear of grease around the edge that has to seal.
refit in air box, with centre bolt
feel all the way around to make sure it is sealing.
refit side cover.
doesnt matter too much if it is still a little wet
do this after every dusty ride
even twice on very dusty rides
I keep about 3-4 spare filters, clean in plastic bags, and wash them all together.
dont forget oil changes as well, they hold a bit over 1 litre, so change it often
