    Air filter choice

    Hello All,
    A new bee here:,
    Do they offer Performance air filters for skis?? They work well on vehicles, wondered if they help a stock ski?
    Thx...

    Yes, aftermarket flame arrestors are a common upgrade of the plenum air boxes. Welcome .. btw

    On what type of ski? On the GPR best one is none. Just the throttle body with the little stock rubber velocity stack is all that is needed.

    You might not need a FILTER, but you absolutely should have a FLAME ARRESTOR!!!

    Plus, I do believe its a must have according the USCG. If you are closed course racing, thats one thing, but for recreation, I suggest them.

    I was wodering about that, took off the plastic cover on my 1200 R and there was a metel grate with holes in it and no air filter under it.

    Just remember if you change the air intake to breathe easier more than likely you will need to compensate for a leaner mixture or you will risk a lean seizure.

    i totally agreed. if you have a burn reed petal , and no flame arrestor of any kind it can make 4 of July come way earlier. i have personally made that mistake,and still doing it,on my ski, but its a big chance of loosing the ski forever and some nasty burns on my ass.

    we ran them open for a long time and so did several others. No issues what so ever.
