'06 XR650L air cleaner


Recommended Posts

Is the OEM air filter cleanable? I just picked up a new-to-me '06 with about 5K miles on it, and it looks like the original filter still in it and I was wondering if it's washable/oilable. I plan to upgrade eventually, but until then....... Thanks.

No, it's not. It's a paper filter. Just get a UNI foam filter.

Clean it with a little mineral spirits or kerosine in a small bucket or plastic bag. You just soak it up like a sponge and squeeze it out. Then wash it with soap and water - let dry. Also, grease the sealing surface for a nice seal.
