Got ya beat!

A couple of months ago, I decided to get my '83 Honda 250 ATC running.

I swear the following is the truth...

I bought this Honda ATC new in '83. I installed a Mugen 300 top-end kit and K&N filter, and used it in Open-class ATC Desert Racing for 2 years. After that, I mostly used it to run around in the Glamis (California) sand dunes, for about 10 years. Since then, it's been sitting in my garage.

Anyway, back to the story... I thought I'd better clean my K&N filter (since it was over 25 years old) and guess what?!?!? It cleaned up perfectly! I oiled it up, and the &$%# thing is still working like a champ!

Unbelievable, but true!
