Solo 210 Air Filter or Intake Silencer?

I took off the stock foam filter and mounting plate which had holes through it to get to the mounting screws (seems like a bad design).

I have a new adapter mounted..ready to accept a K&N or an intake silencer.

I would like to keep it as quiet as possible however, I do not want to lose any power....additional power would be great.

Any recommendations? It is a WB-32 on an Adventure F3 with standard exhaust & head.

Thank you!

I run just a pretty big K&N on my F3, similar situation to you, I didn't like the standard filter, nor the lack of smooth trumpet on the inlet side. I machined a chunk of Delrin bar into an adapter for the K&N, and built in a nice smooth trumpet intake shape, which can only be an improvement over the crude flat plate of the standard rig. It does make some noise, but I don't find it intrusive over the exhaust and prop noise. I should think that the only way you will silence it would be to set up a large 'still air' plenum chamber, probably surrounding the K&N. It does have to be pretty big though to maintain the efficiency of the airflow, and that is kind of problematic on a paramotor, especially as we want to maximize airflow to the prop.

Hi,

I'm also after an air filter and air box for my Adventure F3 with Solo 210 motor with WALBRO 32 carb. I just want to fit a replacement without having to do any mods just bolt straight on.

Does anyone know where the best place is to get such a thing? A link to any website or any info would be great thanks.

I recently fitted a K&N in place of the foam filter it had from the factory, I went to a kart shop and asked for a adaptor to fit a tillotson in my case, but you can get them for walbro carbs too, they are normally 60mm outside circumfrance, if you look on ebay they sell "short" K&N style filters for minibikes in all different sizes including 60mm.

My Walbro adapter came from Mojo's Gear. It is 2.5 inches (6.4cm) at the inlet.

I will just grab a K & N and keep it simple. It has a pretty smooth sound as it is.

I am sure it has been posted before but here is the Solo 210 breakdown with Adventure part numbers.

Seeing as there are a few us here with the F3s. Mojo's appears to use the same numbers for their Adventure parts.

Good luck to all of us!
