It's up to you if you want to use them. I don't feel they filter as well as the stock oiled foam ones, since they are designed to flow more air, which would in theory anyway lean out the air/fuel mixture, but I have no idea how much. I use the Emgo stock replacements from Dennis Kirk, and change them about every 10,000 miles. I don't even try to clean them, I'm afraid I'll rip a hole in them somewhere, without noticing it, and wind up with dirt in the engine. The Emgo filters are a amall fraction of the cost of Kawasaki filters, and seem just as well made. Jerry.
