    Air filter

    Hi

    I am keen to clean the air filter on my Atom 2. It is stuck to the air box and wont simply lift out without tearing the rubber. Has anyone else had this problem?

    If I get a new filter which make and model fits ?

    many thanks

    Anthony (Uk)

    Correct me if I am wrong but I think Atom 2 and 3 uses the same foam panel filter? For a while there I tried to source an after market panel filter but can not find a compatible one (there is a filter made be K&N for a motorcycle that is very close in dimension but not exact), so I am guessing Ariel had them custom made for the Atom, if you are in the UK you may have to go back to them for a new one or find a manufacturer that will custom make one. Hopefully someone else on this board have had better luck in sourcing a drop in replacement.

    Where can we get an air filter for the Atom? TMI is the only source in the US?

    Is that compatible with the K24 SRAs as well?

    That one was on the Chevy motor. (7 7/8"L x 5 7/8"W) Ecotech motor measurements.

    Unfortunately I'm not sure if the same one was used with the k20 motor. I know that the K24 that I have in the car now uses a 33-2679, which is used with the snorkel intake version.

    K24 version dimension (8.5"L x 5 3/8" W) This measurement is the recessed section.

    Oddly I don't think my car uses a K&N at all. My best guess is an ITG foam filter as seen here:
    ITG WB315
    https://www.merlinmotorsport.co.uk/p...oaAvP5EALw_wcB

    If that's the one then the cleaning solution would be:
    ITG CL1
    https://itgfilters.net/products/cl1

    It is good to know that a K&N would fit as well.

    Some nice published research on K&N vs. OEM found in my searches:
