Thanks for actually cleaning it and proving out that it cleans well.My dealer had a stage 1 oval filter in stock part# 5415825 so I bought it . Paid $75 + tax.
At my 35K oil change I again cleaned out the bugs and loose dirt by tapping and compressed air like always, but since I now have a spare filter I decided to fill a wash pan with very soapy water and swirl the filter around in the pan for a few minutes. Rinsed it off with the garden hose. The filter came out of it's bath almost spotless and looking like new. The paper element still intact and solidly attached to the molded rubber. Let it drain and again used compressed air to help it along the drying process, then reinstalled it on the bike.
They are washable and reusable. Hope this helps
Good info! It’s about time they made this. Im probably going to sell my stage 1. I’m putting a Voodoo air cleaner on todayOval performance replacement air filter here - www.indianmotorcycle.com/en-ca/shop/accessories/performance/air-intake-cams-engine-components/5415825/
There are a number of sites that carry the replacement element for the stage 1 oval air cleaner. I simply googled the part number 5415825. The site witch doctor (Stage 1 Air Intake Filter by Polaris) carries the elements.Wonder how many got burnt with this one.
