Well a buddy of mine dirt bike's had an old air filter that had "bit the dust"<---no pun intended. So we had to order a new one and instead of waiting for it to ship we built one. Using layers of paper towels and a rubber band, put holes in the layer (about 4-5 pen size openings) then on the second layer no holes but it has to be dampened with a very light oil to help capture all the little dust particles. Then wrap the rubber band over both layers and onto the hose that connects your air filter to the carb. It is like an engine condom so to speak, and from what I can tell an easy alternative to replace you broken air filter if your stuck out in the woods with just a rubber band and paper towels. It seems to filter well, but I would like a second opinion: Am I hurting the engine by doing this?
