I want to slap a high flow conical on the air tube. I want to try to find one that will accomodate a precharger for dust.

Thanks in advance.

Hey cm"Got no Precharger"k

I appreciate the post, but when I went to the K&N website (Thanks SweetCJ7), I didn't see a precharger listed for the RU-3610 part #.

Do you run a precharger on yours (Foam filter overlay for dust) ?

Somebody must have a combo that works. Thanks.

Go to Sears and find a foam filter for a Shop Vac that will fit the 3610 ... same thing.

Otherwise don't bother with it. I've never run a pre-filter-charger whatever the gell they call it. The filter will stay relatively clean unless you sink your rig up to the headlights in muck like I did just before that picture was taken.

Even when they do get dirty, they take less than 10 minutes of work to clean and reoil ... soak it overnight in a strong solution of Simple Green. The next morning, brush off the ook and rinse it out. Stuff it in a heater vent and crank the thermostat .. it will dry in about 10 minutes. Shoot it with some fresh oil and you're good to go.

Funny, but everything I do to mine is exactly what K&N tells you NOT to do.

Here's my combo...


Here's the actual filter only...


My filter is the K&N RE0930, unfortunatley I can't remember the precharger part number, but it fit's tight as a gloove.

Thanks PaulB - Nice Pics.

The pre charger number for the RE-0930 is a 22-8033PK. It was on the K&N website. Call me anal, but I've heard too many horror stories about dirt & dust in the throttle body that I want to have the precharger.

One thing that is interesting:

cmk used the RU-3610 which has a 2 3/4" ID mounting flange and Paul B used the RE-0930 which has a 3" ID mounting flange. Your air tubes must be different. Do you both have stock air tubes?

orbicat, you can see in my picture that the rubber coupling on the filter is being pulled in to the air tube, a 1/4" is not that much of a difference. So, yes, I have the stock air tube.

The 2-3/4" i.d. fits the stock tube like a glove, any smaller and you would have a hard time getting it on the pipe.

I have a K&N on my 250R, and I bought these things called filter skinz. They keep small particles out, and since I have 3 of them, you can change them while your on the trail, if you go through some dusty areas. They are key for riding in sand pits.

Unfortunately, I havent seen them for anything but atv and dirt bike size k&n's. All it is, is nylon material, like stalkings. You can use some of those to do the same thing. You can "double bag it" or even tripple.
