This can also be applied to any model with a foam type filter. paper type filters are simply throw away and replace:::::::

Grease on the ends is just as important as oiling the foam. That goes for clamp on filters as well! And K&N shouldnt even be considered on a off road vehicle.

They used a Teryx filter for example here, but this process applies to every brand foam type filter. also having extra's oiled and in the freezer bags is a good idea, the Teryx filter is only about 5 bucks at the dealer.....IF you have the amount of oil as in this video, AND grease all the sealing edges, dirt has a hard time getting through and eating the facing off your valves. in theory if the filters are prepped like this the filter should plug up and choke the motor down before it sucks dirt or dust.......this is supposed to be done by the dealers when they prep new units, but who knows if they do it? my advise is check and do it yourself before even riding the 1sr time, because if you ride one ride weekend with little to no oil on the filter, you have ruined your top end, especially the facing off your valves and they will not hold spec.........

Advice about the dealer posted here should be taken very serious....most dealers have the least experienced guys doing the prep, and I bet that 95% of them do not do things like prep the filter properly. All the dealer (most that is) are concerned about is watching you leave with something they sold you.
