cleaning air filter'

How often should the air filter be cleaned and oiled? I read somewhere that someone had their warranty voided because they didn't clean after each time thet went out. Has anyone had warranty problems after switching to an aftermarket filter? I like the filter and billet adapter that Hunterworks offer, But I don't want warranty issues.

i ride desert and dunes 100% of the time...i run an uni filter, and i make sure to clean mine after every weekend (sometimes during the weekend if it gets real bad). better safe than sorry!

These days the warranty ain't worth spit. I am sure if you use anything that Kawasaki didn't use even if it is better a dealer will say no on a warranty issue.

I think it sucks that I paid $1000.00 for a 4 year extended warranty that I'm now finding out is almost useless. What do you do suck dirt or give up on warranty?

Just always keep your oe parts, if you have a warranty issue and have to return to the dealer, what the dealer don't know don't hurt

I'm with this one but with our air filter you would have to get a new airbox but they are not expensive

Maybe you should offer the modified air box and filter as a package deal. Just a thought.

Well ain't that just like Kawi, every part of the airbox on a 09 is available separate except for the bottom half of the air box.
