Oiled foam only for my bikes that go anywhere near
dirt or dust...
I use the OTR foam filter as it has more surface area than
the pipercross filter
I would use the Yamaha paper filter before a DNA or K&N...

If yer a black top rider go with the DNA or K&N type...

I'm still running the Yamaha oil/foam filter, but I see No Toil are now making for the Tenere. I've had one on a DRZ, they wash out beautifully & easily in the kitchen sink with their own bio degradable cleaning solution without upsetting the missus.

Hmmmmmmmmmm interesting.
I opened the airbox and I assume it's a yamaha one within, nothing on it to say otherwise, but didn't seem very oily at all.
The bike will be mainly on the road but I'd like to be able to take it on a few trails if I ever get the chance or find any, nothing majorly off road as it'll be way outside my abilities, but trails and gravel would be nice

It shouldn't be oily. UK bikes are fitted with dry paper elements as standard. Australian market ones (like Desert Racer's) are fitted with washable oiled foam filters from the factory.

Oh why must yamaha do different things for different markets, what's wrong with giving everyone the same

My blue (SA) XT660Z has done quite a lot of dirt and dust riding with a DNA filter without getting any dust or dirt inside the filter. Suppose if it's oiled properly it should serve for all conditions.
My Australian ZT660Z 2015 model came out with a standard OEM paper filter and I've also replaced that with a DNA filter and lid (stage 1.5 at his stage).
The main reason for changing is the better breathing and nippier performance.

Cheers dirkz, That's good to hear. Yeah for me it's to get a bhp or two out of it, I've been looking at the lid snorkel too

I think most manufacturers do this depending on the environment the product is sold in.

How about adding the stock filter to the vote list?
