Hi everyone, I am new to the kawi scene. I have been riding honda 250rs for the past couple of years and i am looking into getting a kfx450r. I am in need of a replacement filter for a fuel customs intake.
I am very short on time and can not order a fci filter or yfz450 gytr filter. I have checked the dealerships for the yfz filter but no luck. I am going to look at a quad that supposably was at the start of
all the performance parts getting parted out. the guy said he just threw the filter away for his fci. I cant imagine listening to the motor and test riding it without the filter. I know nothing about these quads as far as what i should be looking for when buying one of these. I am new to fuel injection but need it for the mountain trails. I would be greatful for any help with the air filter and buyers inspection tips. thank you.

Welcome to the Forum...

Can you find a KFX foam filter & cut it to size and fasten it with a 4-1/2 Hose clamp for the test ride...Is the only thing I can think of...!!

Make sure to run it through the gears, check with the seller of the kFX's maintenance record...oil changes/valve clearance inspection & any motor work that was done...

You only need an KFX stock filter that's foam & stretch it over the FCI tube....cut it to fit & clamp it with an hose clamp...Or duct tape on the tube... if it only (temporary) to test ride the KFX before purchase...!!
