Standard air filter as long as its kept clean, will be as good as any after market one.

Cleaning is done by stripping the plastic frame and then the flash gauze off, then gently wash in the sink using fairy liquid, rinse in fresh water and crush the excess water out, there is no need to dry.
Now coat in WD40 or a light coat of filter oil.

As all zx9's are all slightly different, and I get fed up having to ask which model & number, as year may not be accurate.

You'll probably find your left with just the gauze part and the air is being filtered through a big lump of dead flies. I clean mine at each service, 3-4000. H

As I'm new here and doing some reading.

Yorkie I wouldn't use WD40 as over time it does evaporate. Preference would be foam filter oil or if you need to use oil something like Inox which doesn't dry out but it's viscosity is to thin for my liking.

Cheers

When I wrote this I was knocking up the miles fast and would at the filter more often so WD was ok, but for most a light coating of filter oil would be better, too much oil restricts it and is a pain to wash out.

For a C1 model, the manual says to reapply with 30w engine oil.

Gotta rise this old topic to speed things up,sorry :?

So...shitty weather means 9R service time 8)
Lots of things to do,starting with air box and filter
Brand new installed this spring ..and after 4000km this season it was full of all kinds of dead shite ..

Cleaned,washed and dried it and now I could use some advice about oiling it,please ;

1. Conclusion here is still that WD-40 is not good enough for the job ?
2.When spraying,do you have to spray both sides of the filter,or just outer (intake) side ? :o
(it was previously installed by pro mechanic,I have no reson to doubt,but seems to me that yellow side was dirty and oily and gray side was clean and dry ) :-k
3.When oiling with...erm...oil :smt003 ,can I use Mobil 1 (car oil) 5W30 and why would gradation be of any importance in filter oiling anyway ? :smt102
4....and is this OEM ? :-k (forgot to take a pic of it being very dirty after only 4k/km :roll: )

Looks OEM. As good as a K&N or better. Fiber side down, foam side up. If only colored, dark side up, so you can see how dirty it is on the dirty air side of it.

For most people, I'd say, just buy K&N spray. It'll last you forever and is super easy to apply. Their oil isn't much more time consuming to apply and a little cheaper.

You shouldn't use 5w-30 or something heavy because it's too thick. You want something that just clings to the air filter fibers enough to present something sticky for dirt particles to collect on as the engine breaths through the filter's pores. If every orifice is clogged up with motor oil, the filter may not filter much of anything and the bike will probably object to the fact that it cannot breath. If you do decide to add non-air filter oil, make it a light 5w to 7w grade if possible, like fork oil. It gets the job done too.

As E1 says Johnny. The lightest oil you can get hold of, even household 'hinge-oil' :)

I pour some onto a plastic carrier-bag, fold/scrumple the bag up to coat a large area then press the filter onto it for a few seconds, does it mint.

Coat the outer edge with petroleum-jelly or light-grease to add to the seal.
