Well i went riding at my practice track last night and wake up to wash my bike. The first thing i do is pull the air filter off and the U-Flow chamber , to come across it is full of dirt on the inside and my carb has chunks of dirt laying on the inside. I have no idea how my motor didnt blow up. There was dirt laying in the chamber of the U-Flow , heres pics to show everything. And yes i had my air filter on tight and it was tight on the carb so where could it of came thru at ? Im so aggravated right now and whoever wants to buy this junk off me its for sale. Ill be sure to send this same thing to BBR and let them know about this.

no this isnt on the new bike , this is on my other one. And its spotless b4 every ride and both clamps were tight. This isnt the first time its done it either but b4 it was just a tiny bit by the filter so i didnt think nothing of it , until i seen this !

I think I would snatch it off and not use it the first time I saw dirt in it, even if it did cost $70 to $150. I swear I've never heard anyone say, "yes it's great, you should get one" unless they had one for sale.

So did the plastic housing break letting dirt in or did the dirt come through the filter? What kind of filter oil were you running?? If any?? I doubt it was the u-flows fault..

Well I do read but you didn't state anywhere what type of air filter oil you use.... If you had a prepped foam air filter you should not get dirt passing through like that. I'm not a fan of bbr or their u-flow setup, however I know several people that have used the u-flow without an issue. Well send those pics and your story to BBR.. Let us know what they say.
