Dellorto free flow air filter. I got tired of buying air filters so I make these now. Cut with scissors, use bottle to increase inside diameter a bit, drill hole, file and finish with sandpaper. Use screen or foam for element. If you're handy and have access to a lathe I imagine you could do this even quicker.

Oh it's not that bad. If you want some water with a slight beer taste.

Remember this beer is like having sex in a canoe.

This, are these aluminium beer bottles?

Re: Beer Bottle Air Filter

I like all the other air filters shared here. Good job! Now I'm wondering if I made it a bit taller would it be a bit more quiet. Yes, aluminum beer bottle, of course. You could strip the paint off and make it shiny aluminum but I kind of like the blue with the advertising taglines.

Re: Beer Bottle Air Filter

filters aren't cheap... a good filter can be 50 bucks, but these aren't necessarily good filters.

but it does in the first case provide an interesting and possibly advantageous geometry, and in the prima's case, let you run cheaper bigger filters.

Re: Beer Bottle Air Filter

This is cool!

Re: Beer Bottle Air Filter

yep yep

Re: Beer Bottle Air Filter

despite the hate...I like it

Re: Beer Bottle Air Filter

here's another option I've run.

Bailing wire the small ends and hose clamp the big end and it's good.

I've never tried to use the bottom of the bottle. I have an express with a sha. I'll try it out for sure.

Re: Beer Bottle Air Filter

Nice! Beer can works pretty well on 17 bing

Re: Beer Bottle Air Filter

That's a nice variation. I actually splurged for UNI foam from Treats. It filters out more than just the big stuff. I could try some leftover fiberglass window screen too. Others have used the Scotch Bright scuff pads. In spite of the performance gains with no filter it makes me uncomfortable for any engine to inhale grit.
