    I washed my stock filter with simple green and hosing outside in. Then oiled it with K&N filter oil. Rode it today and no issues.

    Cleaned mine too today. Impressed with tge quality of the stick filter. Unless you ride in a lot of dusty dirty conditions it’s fine. Not much to improve IMO….

    The stock air filter is oiled paper, no?

    Yes. According to the shop manual.

    Besides Rally Raid, does anyone in the U.S. make a tool for taking off both the front and rear wheel?

    Not in the US but it's a great tool and shipping was reasonable when I ordered. I got an older version that didn't have the 19mm Hex adapter.

    I’ll post a pic tonight if my kit. The 19mm hex adapter I have looks like the normal front axle tool you can get in various sizes. It has steps of different hex diams. The new version of this kit looks like it streamlines the kit a little.

    Thanks, goldentaco, twice as expensive as the Rally Raid tool. I like the single set up Rally Raid has but shipping was as expensive as the tool.

    If there is still some meat left on it try the screwdriver first

    I know different hemisphere, continent, country but the shipping for https://eastbound.shop/product/yamaha-tool-kit/. was about the same. Lucky for me I needed a lot of stuff from Rally Raid. :-) Shipping costs are just another victim of COVID.

    Wow that new version looks slick, I have the older version I got as a gift, which works great.

    A dab of silicone grease on installation will make removal much easier. Works on nylon thread savers underwater on submarines.
