2009 Paper element air filter?

Has anyone on here replaced the Gen 1 air filter with a paper element? I'd like to get away from the OEM filter which requires cleanaig and oiling..

Well, you don't have to bother cleaning and oiling it if you just replace it with a new pre-oiled OEM one. I think it's about $32 from Partzilla. I like to have the second one oiled in a bag and ready to go so I don't have to wait for it to dry after cleaning. Then I can take the time to clean the dirty one later.

AliExpress has some decent K&N type filters, very cheap. The downside is that they take about 30 days to get to you. I like them way better than the stock ones.
