I was surprised at how much sand got in the carb of my crapscooter at 18 escapade after some skiddys on the beach, with one of those foam filters 

not oily enough. Redirect your crank case breather to constantly top it up

Unbridled creativity

That sounds super, I don't know if @Shakotom was up for doing anything or just being peer pressured.

I'm quite happy either way, I don't know how much lead time sticker printers need on this kind of thing? Its possible we're too late already, any idea @Truenotch @Archetype

The one bike with a foam pod definitely ran worse once soaked.

Would these have been with filters properly oiled?

I've just upgraded to a UNI foam filter from a tea strainer gauze.

Was a well oiled uni filter today. But it was pouring where we were. 
 

Uni filters are definitely better at keeping out dust. Cheap Trademe type ones don’t hold much back.

I rode it for about half a day in decent rain on another ride we did and it was all good, gave it death and it didn’t explode 

job tidy.  
 

plus a little bit of moisture shouldn’t matter too much - dropping it in a river while it’s running is another story however

Even those cheap TM ones need oil, otherwise they are pretty much only stopping rocks and cats from being sucked in.

Chainsaw bar oil is a cheap/half assed alternative to proper filter oil, it's got additives to make it sticky etc.

GN filter recommends engine oil
