Guglatech Air Filters and the RATS Machine

Guglielmo Ferrazzani is the driving force behind Guglatech fuel and air filters.  First he created the world’s best fuel filtration system, then he created the world’s best air filter for the BMW 800 and 1200 series.  But even those air filters didn’t meet his demanding standards, so he went back to the drawing board.  First he created a testing platform, the Raid Against The Sand (RATS) Machine.  Then he tested OEM paper filters, foam filters, and cloth filters made by other companies.  They all failed.  Read this article and see for yourself.  It’s pretty impressive:  Hail to the Guglatech RATS Machine 


The RATS Machine replicates the worst conditions any rider will ever encounter, compressing a 10-year ride into a few minutes.

As a result of those tests, Guglielmo created an entirely new air filtration system – The Rally Raid Ultra 4.  This new filter replaces the “old” Guglatech air filter, which was already superior to other types and brands.

About the Author:

I'm David Petersen, owner of BestRest Products. You can see my photo on the home page. I've been riding motorcycles for almost 60 years, and during that time I've had some wonderful adventure. In 2000 I started BestRest Products - our first product was a folding back rest, hence the name of the company. Over the years I kept designing and inventing gear. Today we have over 300 products in our store, and I created many of them. I ride a BMW R1200GS, a BMW F800GS, a Honda XR650R, and two KTM 450-EXCs. Plus I have a couple quads that I keep at a summer cabin. I spend most of my free time riding with my wife Judy. When not riding I'm answering the phones at BestRest or working in the shop on some project. I'm also the author of "How To Ride A Motorcycle Off Road", which is a free book you can download from the website.
