A collection of information as it arises. There's not a lot out there!

Air filter

I've started the post-trip tidy by giving the Alp a thorough wash and look over. Nothing seems broken or to have dropped off although there are lots of tar spots on the engine, from the few new areas of road in France I assume. They'll take a while to clean off with solvent. But not today.

The airfilter looked fairly dark and grubbby from the outside. It's hard to judge how blocked it might be. I gave the air filter two rinses in a dribble of paraffin and then repeatedly worked detergent into the foam and rinsed it out until it was lovely and clean. The airbox sealing foam is torn however and will need replacing. I wonder if it is easy to obtain the official strip sealant or if it will need an aftermarket solution.
