    Air filter foam

    Does anyone know where I can get a new foam air filter in Aus, or alternatively is it possible to buy the foam and does anyone know if it is a special foam. Do the DNA filters make a real difference $180 seems a lot to replace a bit of foam
    Appreciate any thoughts

    I've got a few spare new foam filters in my attic. PM me if you want one and I'll get a price for shipping to Aus.

    Uniflow make one - CF0581. It won't disintegrate like the OEM does and fits much better. I designed it myself
    It won't have the surface area of the DNA filter so you'll need to clean it every service, but you can wash it in turps, squish it out then fill it with Uniflow Filter Oil. Much much cheaper to service than the DNA, and far more resilient.
    It's only ~AUD35.

    That is very generous Laurence. Errol had given me a place to get here in Aus so I’ll give that a go first and see how I go. Thank you very much for the offer
    Cheers Sean
