Why would you need a prefilter? I'm guessing it helps with filtering but couldn't it be restrictive?

the pre-filter helps keep water out and mud off. its a paper element filter so mud sticks to it bad. and as far as resticting the material is made so there is little if any. when you pour water through just goes straight through it. :evil:

The prefilters are washable...they will help catch the majority of the stuff, while the air filter captures the smaller stuff. It will help out with change intervals of the air filter, but since it doesn't catch the smaller crap, it shouldn't be too restrictive.

Thanks, Steve. I appreciate your kind words and pointing folks in my direction.

I want to be careful and sensitive to TDG policies, but will briefly answer a couple of very valid questions that have been raised.

The fabric is 100% polyester knit, which means several things for us:
- polyester won't "hold" water, so when you wash it, it dries rather fast
- being knit and stretchy, the glove-like fit I build into the rpefilters "opens" the weave fr improved air flow and minimal restriction... in fact, when you see a picture of a black one, the camera flash reveals how open the knit is because you can actually see the expanded metal cage surrounding the pleats through the fabric
- the particular fabric I've chosen is sturdy, but in all honesty, will tear and get wear holes like any other fabric
- having this open knit fabric over the filter elementwill keep out things like bugs, leaves, and other larger things which could otherwise get through the metail cage and plug filtration surface area between the paper pleats

Feel free to email me for particulars.
