Yeah, that would be my thoughts, same ole, same ole, you can't have your cake and eat it too...lol...
I just didn't find anything wrong with the OEM filters...
BTW-My 20 yr. old 24 hp Onan engine on my 60" Wheel Horse Zero turn mower has run under probably 20 times as dusty conditions as my bike, it has the same type as the Kawi. OEMs and all I have ever done was clean the foam with gas and re-oil and smear grease on the insides of the filter box... Reckon I should get a new filter...???...lol...
I will get one of those recharge kits though and clean & lube the K&Ns on the bike...
Thanks Folks...
