Air filter breaking apart
I haven't been riding the Versys that much lately. It finally rolled over 30K, so I went on with the usual maintenance. When I took out the air filter to get it cleaned and re-oiled I found out the foam is falling apart. If it had been captive between two mesh sections, it wouldn't have been an issue, but since it has mesh only on the downstream side if it had been there a bit longer I would have ended with no filtering in some parts.
Seemed OK last time I cleaned it. Maybe it's just heat/aging. In any case, I recommend you handle the cleaning of the foam element with care if you are on the 3rd or 4th service and up. New filter assembly from Ron Ayers was ~$40 (shipped).
