hi guys. it is time to change my air filter and i would like to get something aftermarket. are there any of you who have installed a performance filter? which one do you guys think is the best for the V?
Some guys use dish soap and wash it in water. K&N sells a cleaning kit with a spray on cleaner, you let it sit for a couple of minutes then rinse it under the tap. When the filter is dry, re-oil it with the oil in the kit. The filter is designed to be cleaned, so in no way is this the poor man's way of dealing with the situation (in reference to the post above).clean it? as in just bang the dust out of it? wash it with water and let it dry? or oil it? or some combination of the above?
When I cleaned mine, I followed the instructions given in the 2007 Versys service manual: clean with a high volatility petroleum-based solvent, blow dry, and re-oil with SAE30 oil.clean it? as in just bang the dust out of it? wash it with water and let it dry? or oil it? or some combination of the above?
I think they changed it for 2008. Mine looks like this (well, it's cleaner now ):I think the stock filters are pretty darn free flowing. I went with a DNA because I thought it had better filtration. The stock is a very thin porous foam.
