So I have a 1996 cr125 and I drove off with my air filter and cage on the back of my car. So can I just buy a new filter or do I have to buy the "cage" as well

Good for you...

The cage is what holds the filter onto the airbox.. it's the frame of the filter, with out that, you just have a floppy piece of foam with a screw thru it..

This is pretty much common sense, not something you'd need to read a book for.

Obviously its not common sense, maybe to you Mr. Know it all. Indy should write a book. (master of the obvious over here)

No maybe you should sit back and listen for a while :nod:
Indy responded very matter of factly to your stupid move and pointed out the obvious. Now sit back this week and learn

Let's change it from air filter and cage to something else.

No matter how ya' slice it about 2 minutes of sitting back and really thinking about what you were going to post would have avoided the Homer Simpson "DOH!".

Actually, it is a matter of common sense, but not everybody is born with it.

So, you have a soft, piece of material that needs to be attached to a rigid surface. There is a hard skeleton type piece that goes inside it to help it maintain it's shape so that it can be attached. Is there anything there that will keep this extrememly flexible object is place, and in shape without that skeletal piece? Nope, I don't see anything, looks like a new part is going to be needed. "Master of the obvious", indeed.

Forget Tire and Tube - I think Tire and Wheel is a better comparison. "I left my wheel at the library. Now, how can I get my tire on? Do I actually need a wheel or can I do put my tire on without it?"

Obviously, common sense is not as common as it used to be. :coocoo:

Some have it, some don't. :laugh: :rotfl:

It's one thing to have to read yet another ignorant post by an obvious moron, but when you have to take verbal abuse from them when you help them, it's just about too much...

I do appreciate the back up there guys.

In all sincerity Indy I think you do a nice job of succinctly walking people to, well, the obvious. and yeah, oftentimes that might be accompanied by a "doh" on their end.

So, my thanks to you (and the others) for your time and effort. :nod:
