    If the fitment is the same as the Tornado, then DNA do one.
    I got mine here for £57

    Or you can re-use the one you've got - I assume its sponge - just clean it in kero & re-oil it.

    I changed to a DNA, even though my OEM fit well, because the DNA gave me more surface area. Which meant I didn't have to clean it so often.

    I think the stock foam filter isnt up to the task. Its quite thin and dosent fit all that well. In fact they replaced mine(at my expense) at the first service because it didnt fit properly. The foam is very course and compared with a foam filter like a Twin Air for a dirt bike its second rate. Using it on sealed roads in Europe might be OK, but in Australia where its bloody dry and dusty(very fine dust) its not worth the risk. I dont trust it.

    I replaced mine with a DNA also. Its very well made, fits perfectly and comes with sealing grease and small tubes for blocking the holes if you have removed the flaps. Well worth it.

    air filter

    I read in the service details that the air filter element will be replaced every 3 oil changes. That equates to about every three years. I have always changed mine at least annually, especially living here in Texas. Do most of you just change it yourself? Every year? Im getting ready to order a new element and change it.

    BTW, anybody have a link to some instructions on changing the element? Looks like the whole box has to come out. Thanks.

    Hi Dunnix, congratulations on posting a thread that we can all understand for a change

    To change the air filter all you need to do is remove the fuel tank and the air box lid and you are done but there is no way you should be needing to change the filter every year, a good clean out and re-oil, if necessary, should do the trick.
