Old Dog Thanks Folks... Went to O'reilys and picked up the re-charge kit and cleaned and lubed as per instructions... There was really no need yet, but I didn't know exactly the clean or dirty color as they looked the same after cleaning... At least I know when they were cleaned now...lol...
Also I am sure now that I would just stick with the O.E.M. filters if it were up to me to buy the K&Ns, especially for a street bike, they might be good for a dirt bike or one that is rode on gravel or unpaved roads a good bit of the time...

Is it just me or do you find a lot of the part #'s in the verses are not correct?

You really need to sand or dremel ~1/16" off the apex of the top. You'll see when you buy them. If you just force them into the airbox, you will distort the inner mount and the cover will not fit properly... jm

hyperbuzzin I did have a K&N on my old dual sport bike. You could just use regular dish soap to clean and any air filter element oil and probably save a few $$'s over K&N specific stuff.
But... that will void their million mile warranty, which, you probably don't have the sales receipt to cover anyhow.

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...
