Has anyone ever used the WIX air filter. Part number is 24245. It's a foam filter. I've always bought WIX oil and air filters on cars. Previous quads were race quads and used K&N. K&N's are just to much maintenance for this type of wheeler. Any help would be appreciated. Oh yeah price for one is 20.99.

Well I got the WIX filter in and to my knowledge it won't work. Maybe it's me but I don't see how you can hold your filter in place with a hose clamp in the front. How would you tighten it? Is the uni the same way or does it pop in like the stock one?

Some help please....

The Uni and it looks like the WIX just pop in like a stock one and the little door on the back hold them in. Put some grease around the end that just pops in if you plan on using the WIX.

I would sure like to see him use the clamp on an XP. For starters the filter does not clamp on and second I would like to see him get a screwdriver in there.

The WIX doesn't even come close to working. Gonna order the uni today. Do you use the stock outerwear on a uni? Or no outerwear at all?
