The DNA high performance air filter is a high quality next generation multilayer cotton gauze oil impregnated air filter. The filter media is made of 4 layers of high quality nafta surgical cotton gauze specially designed by the R&D department.
The cotton is sandwiched between two layers of epoxy coated marine grade aluminium wire mesh, designed to last a lifetime. The 4 layers of cotton and the two layers of wire mesh are pleated by state of the art electronically controlled pleating machines to assure a very high quality of the final filtration media.
The result of the special design and hi tech manufacturing process is a filtration media that has very high flow rates, low restriction, superior dust holding capability, smoothens out the air flow stream and lasts a life time.
The oil that is used by DNA to impregnate the cotton is a very special grade developed by their own R & D department after intense testing and produced by one of the world’s best oil companies. This special oil is a very critical part of the filter and has the capability to produce a static charge to the cotton media and attract the entire dust particles that flow towards the filter, even the very fine ones. DNA - the world leader in high performance air filters.
Cleaning the filter: With DNA filters you must use their service kit only and not any other brand cleaner or oil because of the material the filter is made of. Once you have applied a generous amount of the cleaner to the filter (soak for 10mins) and added a bit of water on the filter, the best thing to use is a small paint brush (25mm) and dab and brush the filter until it foams slightly and making sure to get into the "flutes" of the filter.Rinse occasionally as you are brushing (dirty side towards clean) repeat if necessary until filter is white in color and all cleaner is removed with thorough rinsing. ****Gently**** blow excess water off the filter with air gun and apply oil as per instructions on the service kit box, (DNA-DSK-2000). The filter should appear all red in color once oil is applied and make sure all nooks and crannies are covered in oil. Be careful not to "over oil" the filter because you may end up with a pool of oil on the ground under your bike and on the header pipes as the oil has run off the filter and out of the airbox drain.
