Simota Washable Reusable Performance Air Filters

Wemoto has now introduced Simota’s range of reusable performance air filters to our wide range of motorcSimota Washable Reusable Air Filtersycle parts listings.

In addition to be attractively priced compared to other brands of reusable filter, Simota have shown power gains of between 2 and 7 horsepower over the original equipment.

How is Simota better than a standard filter?

Paper Air Filters:

Standard paper air filters block airborne dirt particles which are too large to pass though the paper fibre, but also block airflow though the fibre in the process. As more dirt particles are trapped, so the restriction to airflow increases, starving the engine of air and cutting performance.

Foam Air Filters:

Most foam air filters utilise oil to help retain dirt particles, but again, the build-up of dirt particles accumulates into a sticky mess without frequent cleaning and re-application of fresh oil, and again, performance suffers.

The soft foam is also prone to distortion from the ever-changing air intake pressure, and this can dislodge trapped particles and force them through the foam and into the engine with potentially catastrophic results.

Simota Air Filters:

Simota Air Filter Mesh

Simota’s reusable air filters combine the best design and construction elements of both paper and foam filter technologies, utilising the ‘sticky fibres’ approach and the pleated element construction to maximise surface area, air flow and dirt particle retention. Some re-usable air filters use an aluminium mesh, which can corrode and distort, but Simota use a rigid stainless steel mesh which does not corrode or distort.

Attention to detail is an important part of the Simota design and production philosophy, which results in filters that can be up to 30% lighter than the original equipment item. The main body of a Simota air filter is made from EPDM, a synthetic rubber material with outstanding heat resistance properties. High manufacturing standards also minimise rubber and glue overflow on to the filtration material, which on some aftermarket filters can reduce the filtration area by up to 20%.

When a Simota filter becomes visibly contaminated, it is a simple task of removing, cleaning, re-oiling and re-fitting. Full cleaning instructions are included with each filter and Somota cleaning fluid and oil kits are also available from Wemoto. With regular and careful maintenance a Simota filter can last the life of the motorcycle.
