Thinking about putting a pod filter on my 2007 250....

Really the only reason is because I want to slowly make my Rebel a bobber and those pod filters looks so cool! I’ve read they’re not ideal but wanted to check in on the forum for any input. Thanks!

Remove and clean the crankcase filter periodically to avoid blowing out the left side oil seal.

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!

Thanks so much for the advice! Will the filter effect performance?

Possibly. Depending on the air filter you choose, you might need to re-jet the carb and/or shim the carb needle to maintain proper engine performance.

It appears you may not have researched this issue thoroughly, or you would know about the need for a crankcase pod filter when the airbox is removed. Not placing a filter on the crankcase vent tube, as some have done, allows outside air to be sucked into the tube, including dust and fine grit, which is very bad for the engine. Putting a filter on the tube results in an oily goo developing in the inside of the filter, where it can't be seen. If the goo isn't removed in a timely manner, pressure builds up inside the engine, causing the oil seal to blow out.

Pod filters may look good to those that prefer them, but they come at a cost.
