Uni filter problems
« on: June 24, 2017, 09:23:19 PM »
I am trying to put a new uni filter in my 2016 z force 800. I can't seem to get the plastic piece that has the clamps on it to say in the filter. It acts like it's trying to push it out. Any suggestions ? Thank you

Flip it around..I think. The plastic tube has a lip on it that fits one way but not the other. Also remember even though the Unifilter has a 2.25" flange, the actual tube OD size is metric and a bit larger so it's a little more to get on then the OE filter. Anyway if that small lip doesn't go all the way through the flange on the filter it will set weird so I believe you just turn it around.

Yes, flip it around.  It doesn't want to stay on the one end - had the same issue.  Also, make sure there's no oil on that plastic tube.
