TRS Air Filter Spring Compressor
Calling all TRS owners , this month I have a nifty little doodad from MotoTrialsParts on Etsy . com . Changing the air filter on some trials bikes can be a challenge to do , the TRS is no exception . TRS ’ design is better than others but the downfall is the retention spring . While removing the filter , there is a chance that the spring can snag the filter and tear it .
MotoTrialsParts solves this problem with a 3d printed block that slides over the spring and spring post . This holds the spring back , giving plenty of clearance to change the air filter . This genius little device makes changing the air filter a breeze .
Once it was slid down in place , I did find it was a little difficult to remove the device . The 3d print lines create a texture on the inside of the block . Simply using a round file to clean up the lines makes the device work brilliantly . Just lift up on the rear most tab and it slides right off .
This is available on Etsy . com for less than $ 10 . While you are over there , check out his many other trials related products . If you have an idea for a product , feel free to contact him .
There is a link to his Etsy page as well as a link to a video demo on the device .
