Wet AIS!

Thanks to 100 miles of driving in Fat Alberto's rain I got my AIS filter wet. This is the second time this has happened. After the first time I made a deflector to go in front of the zoodad mod, it doesn't seal off the zoodad hole just kind of sits square with the grill with about a 2 inch gap between it and the 3 zoodad holes. I guess it works for the most part as this is only the second time I noticed it. My main question is, How well does the filter hold up after getting wet? It looks like its just wet on the half where the snorkel comes into the box. Should I replace the filter?

I personally don't think it will hurt the filter, but here is what you could do for a fix. Buy some prefilter material from one of the snowmobile aftermarket suppliers (SLP) and sow velcro strips to it then get some velcro strips that have the adhesive, and adhere the stips to the fiberglass so it is around the hole, then velcro the prefilter to it. This stuff is waterproof and snow proof and it will not restrict air flow in any way. I have been using this stuff for years on my sleds and have never gotten a wet filter even riding in snow that comes up over the hood. Just an idea. Gene
