and the idea is to have this kind of stainless steel filters in our vespa airbox. would it be too much to ask for better filtration. Do you guys think it will work when made in exact specs ?

Our Vespas up to 300cc don't need that sort of thing. The GP800 does - and has a big eff-off filter that wouldn't disgrace a 2 litre car.

Really, not needed - and the oil contamination of the re-breathing design would prove very expensive in replacements. Far easier to clean the foam every few thousand miles.

Those filters are easy to clean as well? I actually have the malossi red filters in mine seems to work the same compared to stock, I just thought it would be a neat idea.

When I first saw the foam filter I felt it was kind of outdated bcos before the foam filters I only filters of the k&n bmc kind and thought most if not all auto/motorized has those kind of filters.
