    CB250RS air filter where to buy

    Anyone know where I can get an air filter (just the foam element) for a CB250RS in NZ?
    Part #3 here: https://www.cmsnl.com/honda-cb250rs-...slist/F17.html

    What are people's experiences with things like this to make your own filter? Are they really any different to a bit of old couch cushion or whatever?

    Yes you superglue the sheet together.
    And it is different from normal furniture foam. As I found out when I was 17.

    If you change the type and/or structure of the air filter ... you also may change the fuel-air mixture formula arriving in the combustion chamber.

    A too lean or too rich mixture can have "Undesirable" results later ... both in performance and engine longevity. Especially on small engines.

    If your aim is simply a possible cost cutting measure ... it may save a lot of money by using the correct filters.

    Thanks - I would buy a real Honda filter but I can't find anywhere that sells them locally and would rather not spend copious amounts on importing one from the UK, plus that'd take ages to get here.
    I'll avoid the furniture foam and get some of that DIY filter stuff. I'm planning on doing a plug chop once its all woffed and ready so I'll know if the mixtures wrong.

    So ... none of the Honda shops in Auckland are interested in "finding" one for you ...


    Very odd ...

    As Jellywrestler has said above have you tried Malcolm at Anaconda - he has a lot of Honda spares.

    Thats odd. Ive found the UK to be one of, if not the fastest international shippers, and ive bought from just about bloody everywhere!

    theres a few specialist 'classic' parts suppliers over there, have you looked into them?

    I've just ordered some of the foam filter stock online from NZ.
    I saw a couple of UK websites with filters and its true I don't know the shipping situation for them. though my father has ordered quite a lot of BSA parts from UK 'classic' bike suppliers which always take ages to turn up.
    Anaconda would have been a good idea but a bit late now, I'll remember that if there is a next time.

    Thanks!

    Hiya Matthew, just wondering if you could share a link to where you got the filter foam. Im doing an overhaul on my own RS atm and the filter is foam is done.

    Cheers, J
