Received my new Simota air filter element today. Very well made and came pre-oiled. Can be cleaned and reused, just like a K&N. Installed just like the OEM filter. Remember, this is the exact same filter that the Hooligan uses.


Hey Babble,

Would this fit on a 220i as well?

I don't really know. From my research, there appears to be two different possible air filters for the 220. One looks like mine and the other is completely different. I couldn't find any listing for a Simota air filter that is shaped like the other design. One clue for you though, the part number for the stock paper element for my 150 is M2262070000 - if the part number for your stock element is the same, then the Simota I'm using will fit your 220.

Changed the rear DNM shock for another DNM that is a little shorter (265mm, eye-to-eye vs 280mm) and with a softer spring (250lb vs 350lb). While I like my ride to be firm, the 350lb spring and my 165lb weight just didn't get along. The Blur in stock form is already pretty high for my 32" inseam, so adding a 15mm longer shock over stock made for some serious tippy toeing at stops, hence the need/desire for something a bit shorter. The new ride is firm, but not overly so and I have enough adjustment to fine tune the ride height/preload if needed along with the rebound dampening. Very happy with the results.
I didn't take any pictures because the new shock basically looks exactly like the old one, except shorter.

Any heavy/portly and tall Blur riders out there in need of a good shock? PM me.
