    Anyone else have the Outerwear (pre-filter) for the Baja Air Filter? The damn thing is impossible to put on. Any tips would be appreciated. The pull-start filter was easy, but I gave up on the air filter. The tight clearance between the filter, gas lines, and tank make it very difficult.

    I removed the air filter and slid the cover on almost all the way. Then re-installed the filter and worked the rest of it over the mounting bracket.

    Do I need to send a banana and a condom for you to practice with? :D
    It isn't easy getting it on. took me 20 minutes to figure the puzzle out.

    Im using the one with elastic on my stock filter, did I order the wrong one?
    Its tight to get on but on the other hand, its not going to come off.

    It fits. I use a long needle nose pliers to get it all the way around the plastic housing.

    He did, but someone keeps buying up all the Extra small ones. (Do we shop at the same store?) I have to use a mod I learned. A rubber band around the base will keep it from slipping off under heavy use. :innocent:

    the outwears are tough to get on, their are 2 types one with elastic and one with a drawstring, which is the one made for the baja.

    the elestic ones work, i just spin the air cleaner side to side, while useing a finger under the cover to work it over the aircleaner. its a bitch but it goes.


    Recon. the real question is do you know how many numbers are IN the serial number on a rubber? bet many don't know its 22 numbers? lol

    Serial number?
    I just found out there was more then just a Reservoir. Amazing what you can learn on an RC Forum.

    Back to the subject at hand......:D

    Get the drawstring one from TGN, its alot easier to put on.

    Some guys are putting on the elastic ones over stock + redneck's!!!

    +1 on that

    It takes a little bit of wiggling but it is certainly possible. (the outerwears of course):blush:

    BTW... Its a lot easier to do with the cage removed

    thats a fact Flake, haveing the cage off makes all the differance. and when your redoing your air filter, theres no margin for skimping on a few minutes of time with it.

    Even then your don't want crap in your motor as the crap goes thru the crank case first and thats the part you plan on reusing with a new head

    Exactly. Dirt in fuel/air = bad

    I'm running the redneck with elastic outwear too. I've never really seen any dirt on the inner foam...but I don't run in sand or anything...at least not until I find some.

    I put the outwear on before I put everything back onto the buggy. That way I don't maneuver around the gas tank. Works pretty well for me.
