    I bought a used 09 this past winter with 200 miles on it.



    At 600 miles, I replaced the brass mesh OEM filter, with a regular paper pleated one.

    But I cleaned and kept the OEM filter.



    Can the original brass ones just be reused until they deteriorate?

    The service manual talks about CLEANING the element, not REPLACING it.

    Hi Twisty,



    Yes, you can clean it. I reuse the filter 3 or 4 times before replacing it.



    I spray it with carb cleaner. Hold it up to the light to see if all the holes in the mesh are clear.

    I run the brass ones forever, or until the rubber ends become deformed.



    Whichever comes first.

    Same here. the rubber ends took a set after 10,000 miles or so, so I switched to the paper ones. Even Yamaha dealers couldn't supply a brass one like original.

    I think it costs me $4.00 for a paper filter at the Yamaha dealer. Being I bought the bike used, I don't think I ever got a chance to use the original.



    Either way, $4.00 a year (changing the oil 2-3 times, filter once), isn't really a bad thing, especially considering you get a fresh filter.
