The role of engine air induction system increased because of evaporative emission regulations. The experiences of usage, technical condition of vehicle are linked with best system of technical servicing. According to automobile manufacturer Hero recommendations for air filter replacement ranging from 12,000 km to 15,000 km. The aim of this work is to study different air filter performance for two wheelers. In this air filter integrity testing device is developed. Initially, various air filter of Hero passion Pro model has collected and tested and then effect of air filter clogging on performance of two-wheeler is analyzed.  Finally, maximum pressure drop at different air velocities are determined and performance of both air filter type in clogged and new condition in terms of pressure drop is also studied.
