Wimmer Custom Cycle exclusively manufactures our own line of cleanable / reusable air filters. We design our air filters to provide superior filtration, thus allowing proper protection of your engine, while maximizing the airflow of the air cleaner / air intake you have purchased. Each air filter is designed to our own unique requirements and specifications based on the air cleaner / air intake it was designed for.
The air filters are manufactured from multiple thin layers of surgical grade cotton mixed with polyester. The cotton polyester mix is then sandwiched between two layers of epoxy coated wire mesh. Pleats are then formed, allowing for increased surface area which in turn leads to increased efficiency. The pleated assembly is then shaped and molded with urethane to its final product.
Since Wimmer Custom Cycle’s air filters are manufactured from a cotton / polyester blend, they can be cleaned and re used. The cleaning process is fairly simple and requires no special products. The frequency of cleaning will depend on environmental factors and usage; a good rule of thumb would be once a year or every 15,000 miles. (More frequent cleaning may be necessary depending on environment)
