I purchased this product for my 2007 CR250 and I think the product has been sitting on the shelf since Honda stopped making the 2 stroke.
When I went to peel the backing paper off of the product most of the 2 sided adhesive also peeled off. Meaning that the 2 sided adhesive was only 1 sided now, meaning the product would not stick to the surface of my air box. So this product was un-usable, big disappointment.
This thing is awesome no more grease and quick filter changes with no mess.
Don't wait to buy this product. It is a life saver when it comes to air filter maintenance. Seals just as good as messy grease without the mess. I have one for every bike I own. After using this I would never go back to using grease. I have over 100 Hours on my bike with this and it still seals great. Never had any issues with it sealing.
This will be on all my bikes from know on !!!!,
I don't normally write reviews but I had to share my experience with this one. I did just as the instructions said and cleaned my airbox with alcohol to make a good adhesive surface. I even scuffed up the surface with fine grit sandpaper to be safe. I tried the test pieces they provide and they stuck great. I peel off the paper backing from the seal and all of the adhesive fell right off of it. So now I basically have a neoprene gasket with no adhesive on it. Needless to say I threw it away and wasted my money.
Best of luck to others. Maybe I just got a faulty product. Just be aware...
I haven't owned a dirt bike for almost 15 years, so when I bought my KX450 I was really surprised they still come with the old foam air filters and you're expected to use grease to seal the filter to the housing. My 1984 YZ250 used that system!
To install this you have to be patient. I set up a shop light to shine down into my airbox and used WD40 and an old wash cloth to clean the old layer of grease and dirt off the filter mating surface. If you don't take your time (I mean 20-30 minutes of cleaning) the adhesive on this filter gasket won't stick for very long.
Keep applying WD40 around the rim and carefully clean EVERY inch of the rim. You might have to use a screwdriver to clean around the air box rivets too. Once it's clean, use alcohol on a clean rag to remove the WD40 from the rim. Now you can install the air filter gasket and never have to worry about greasing up your air filters. Great product.
I have purchased this product for my previous bike. Had to get another one for my new bike. Works GREAT!!!! It seals around the intake opening and helps make the air filter seal better.
It's nice to not have to grease the rim anymore because it was a pain to get off. I've only had it a few weeks but it's holding up nicely. Make sure you clean the rim with contact cleaner very well, and then clean it again. Must be 150% grease free if you expect the gasket to stick, and stay stuck.
No need for grease! It was easy to install.
Easy to install and hasn't shown signs of peeling off at all after a year of usage. Very cool that they give you a test piece to make sure it will stick and stay stuck. Clean very well before you stick it and it will hold up. Use it on all my bikes works great.
I bought one for my Cr250 and the adhesive was not sticky at all. I couldn't even install it. Waste of money
Fits well...hard to line up right. Good protection
Great Product, Love not messing with the rim greese
This product does what it says, and forms a better seal between the filter and airbox without the need for grease.
no more grease all over the place
This is a good product if you own a 2004 cr250. The air box seal to the air filter is very poor. This product fills the ugly gap that can let dirt in, and is much cheaper and easier than converting your airbox to an earlier model.
I trust this will stay pliable for some time as I can see how this makes filter changes even faster and easier...no grease. the backing is very sticky so make sure you position correctly before getting too close to the airbox.
Works great. Over 70 hrs on bike and no valve adjustments so it seals well. No more filter grease!!!
I've used these the last 5 bikes I've owned and never had a problem getting a good air filter seal. No more grease and its easy to clean the air box...
