Africa Twin CRF 1000 Air Filters
« on: October 23, 2020, 09:55:08 am »
Hi guys,

I was just quoted by Honda Menlyn for 2x new air filters at R800 a piece, and that they don't have stock at the moment and would only be able to do it on Monday.

Any suggestions where I can get it cheaper from?

PS. Went in for 24 000km service and quote without air filters came to R1550, not too bad. But including the air filters goes up to around R4500, so thats another R1200 for labour!

Found this very usefull youtube video on how to replace the filters, would be easy enough to do:



Thanks for any info!

Riaan

Call Johnny at his shop in Constantia, Roodepoort.  Been a Honda specialist for years and his pricing is really good!  Don't let his tiny shop fool you - he knows what he's doing!

My suggestion is to replace the stock paper with foam filter elements if you can. It saves you $$$ in the long term, especially if you ride in dusty areas like most of SA.

I recently replaced mine with UNIís. That video helps. It is unfortunately a bit of a chore to remove the front panels, but itís easy when youíve done it once. A beer per side dulls the pain considerably...  :occasion14:

Im running BMC filters and have not had any issues. Also new to the twin but taking off the panel gets less pain full the more you do it.
