Uni Foam Filter Care

Care and Maintenance

Your air filter is the lifeline to your engine ... improper maintenance can result in engine failure. Please read the following instructions carefully to achieve maximum engine protection and performance.

1. Uni Filter Oiling Instructions:

Note: Foam filter oil is necessary for proper filtration!

Remove the filter frame (if applicable) and saturate the foam element with Uni Foam Liquid or spray filter oil. 

UFF-16 Uni Liquid Oil:
Pour into pan or tub, and dip the filter until there is complete coverage with oil. Now squeeze out all you can (do not wring) then dab filter with paper towels to remove excess oil. If your filter as a rubber flange be sure to clean mounting surface clean of oil.

UFF-100 Aerosol Filter Oil:
Spray the filter inside and out until the filter has complete coverage with oil. Now work the oil into the foam using your hands. Repeat this step once more and then dab with paper towels to remove excess oil. If your filter has a rubber mount flange, be sure to clean the mounting surface free of oil.

Clean filter frame, clean filter mounting surface and air box. Check air boot and mount on carburetor. Reinstall filter frame (if applicable) back into the filter element. Uni recommends using sealing grease in their exclusive "Ultra Seal" grease groove.

Now you're ready to install your foam air filter.

2. Uni Filter Cleaning Instructions:

Note: Grease cutting cleaner is necessary for proper cleaning!

Remove the filter frame (if applicable). Saturate the foam element with cleaner.

UFC-300 Uni Foam Filter Cleaner: Spray generous amounts of Uni Cleaner on the inside and outside of the filter. Let it soak approximately 3-4 minutes. Rinse out the filter element in warm water until clean. You may need a second application for a heavily soiled element. Very Important! Let the filter dry completely! Re-oil per instructions.

Grease Cutting Cleaner: Products like Simple Green, dish soap, or mild solvents can be used if you don't have Uni Cleaner available. Pour cleeaning solution into a bucket and dunk the filter in the bucket multiple times until clean. Rinse with warm water. Very Important! Let the filter dry completely! Re-oil per instructions.
