You cant over clean the filter. I clean mine after every dirt ride thats dusty.

I have 3 filters so I always have 2 filters ready to go at all times. I keep them in gallon zip lock bags and then just drop them in when the filter needs changing.

Mine wasn't visibly dirty but I though the bike was running a little rich (soot at exhaust tip) so I tried cleaning it and it ran way better afterwards.

This was mostly street riding ... so unfortunately I don't think you can necessarily see that it needs cleaning, maybe someone can recommend a reasonable service interval for street use.
