    GP1200R flame arrestor question

    Has anyone ever removed thier factory flame arrestors, and replaced the air box then placed a regular auto cone air filter at the other end of the suction tube? Figure it would be a more cost effective option

    More than likely that would cause a lean condition and probable siezer.If your conditions and ski dont take water on after a ride you could run without them,but not a good Idea especially if you ride in rough water or wave jump where your likely to take on water.Hope this helps

    Thumbs up Flame arrestors

    I had the same thought when I first got my GPR. It is possible, in fact I actually bought one at advance auto parts put it on and ran it for a while. Know I had rejetted carbs and some other mods already done so it was o.k. for me. I finally went with the Riva Pro FA's. They are much better and let more air in. I also use the screens that go over them because I ride in rough water....Good Luck.....

    Thanks for the help I will probably get the Riva ones, but figured I would ask

    The only thing is that a flame arrestor isn't an air filter....It's a spark arrestor. Why not just remove the guts of the stock airbox and all the tubing and run with an open/gutted box? It's free and there's a handful of people around here doing it... You will need to rejet the carbs though.....

    An air filter would be a mess in a water environment..
