Silly question...

8 posts in this topic

I was wondering what all you guys with outerwares on your bhaf's do to clean them? I was just gonna wash it out with some water, let it dry, and put it back on. Is this correct?

Sometimes I just wipe mine off in place. Sometimes I wash it off in the sink.

Took mine off and don't even bother... I rubbed a few holes in mine rather quickly and gave up on it... But when I did have it I just rinsed it off in the sink let it air dry... Still waiting for my filter minder to move...

There is never a silly question! The worse thing you can do is NOT ask one!

I just blow the dust off with a little compressed air. I figure it will get more wear and tear taking it off and reinstalling it to clean it. Mine is still on the same filter after about 2 years.

Thanks for the replies guys! My outerwares already has a hole rubbed through it thanks to the ac hose (?), but considering how much dirt is on it, I figure it's still doing it's job of prolonging the life of the bhaf.

I neglected to mention that one must be VERY gentle using compressed air on the Outerwares prefilters. :whistle:

Being my BHAF filter has most of its life in dirt road and never had a Outwears till someone gave it to me... I've got a filter minder plugged in the head of the filter and its not moving but I do test the filter minder for function. 6 years and 112K miles and only owned a Outwears for 1 year... Even at that rate I paided $40 bucks for the filter so thats $6.66 per year for the filter. Not bad and I got a new one sitting on the shelf waiting for that other filter to finally fail and plug up... I got Taz hooked up with a BHAF on his 92 and we found out because of it pure huge size it not able to hold dust on the media for long. It tends to shake off the excess dust on a bumpy road like head up to the Ranch on a 6 mile climb on a 1 lane dirt forestry road... His now is 2 years old and still looking good...
