Air Filter Review! New Champ Revealed!

Yep ya heard it...

I couldn't sleep last night, so I spent the last 16 or 17 hours of my life re-mastering the intake on my Jimmy built e50 speed machine. Crazy fun.

During this time period, I also managed to try out every air filter i have laying around this place that will fit a PHBG. A few didn't fit cause the tire hits, but the ones that did fit got a thorough beat down in the streets of sf today.

So I'm proud to announce the new champion of PHGB air filters...

The malossi E12 yo! Crazy impressive. Definitely the smallest "real" air filter, and probably the highest flow "real" filter. Don't forget that filter oil dudes! Pretty much the most stylish thing to ever grace the filter side of your carb. ever.

Proof...

Only available in almost-invisible-covert-mission black with black filter. Rad.

So yeah, 5 stars, 2 thumbs up, all that. Recommended to all.

Prepare to upjet.

Jimmy is the man by the way. Thanks Dude!

did you try out the malossi E5 big red filter?

its quite a bit more flashy but its the best one ive tried

Re: Air Filter Review! New Champ Revealed!

the best filter is no filter

Re: Air Filter Review! New Champ Revealed!

ummmmm, no....maybe on a slow-ass Batavus......

I actually prefer these:

Although they are about as loud as a horn, but stylistically, I like 'em better, and they fit perfectly under a Moby.....

I'm actually switching to the dreaded "Coke Bottle" filter, cause the horn is soooo loud....

I personally like this one. Dunno how great it really is, but my bike runs well. I'm not a huge fan of how the 90 degree malossi attaches, I always seen to drop the tiny nut. Other than that its performance isn't all that great, or better at least. It did run good though with the 90 and no foam.

Re: Air Filter Review! New Champ Revealed!

i didn't try out that big red malossi, but i can tell you that it wouldn't have fit. that thing is huge!

the 90 degree malossi would probably be extra rad if it came with the same black filter as this one does. and it looks like it could based on that picture from 77 up there, but i've only seen it with the red.

the black material is probably as close as you can get to not having an air filter while keeping out the bad stuff.

when it's not compressed, like before you tighten it down, you can basically see through it. crazy flow.

aesthetically pleasing and performance ready. yep.

Re: Air Filter Review! New Champ Revealed!

Hey does that bowl touch the cylinder head?

Re: Air Filter Review! New Champ Revealed!

whats the least restrictive for a SHA

Re: Air Filter Review! New Champ Revealed!

i think the big red malossi is probably the best, i rock it on my gilardoni, with the doppler sidedraft intake. best ever.

it also can fit on an SHA

Re: Air Filter Review! New Champ Revealed!

try this one? even though some are too hideous to even pick up, black is coming.

i need my wheels back i'm doing golden gate mopedcross

Re: Air Filter Review! New Champ Revealed!

the float bowl doesn't touch dude, I filed that middle fin down an extra little bit to make room. Perfecto fit.

brandon, i was gunna use these to race mopedcross myself, but we can work somethin out. those tires are strictly for rooster tailin the shit out of beach sand. baker beech babes beware!

Re: Air Filter Review! New Champ Revealed!

Anyone know what the diameter of the opening on this Malossi filter is (see attached pic)? Thinking of plopping it on a Mikuni 20mm.
