|dvyce||Guys the aftermarket filter ripped at the bottom completely and got stuck in my throttle housing and jammed it open even after i let go off the gas. It happened just when i was revving and dumped the clutch. i almost had a bad one coming guys. Very aggressive wheelie with no control and i refused to dump the bike and held on, managed to pull the clutch in and tap the rear brakes. Rough touch down and I had to hit the kill switch. Randy is gonna follow up with the company in the AM and ask what the hell is going on. that air filter has barely done 80 miles and so there is no reason why it should rip. bleeping hazzard!!!!!!!!|

that's an air filter? looks like steel wool.
is it a K&N filter? the oil they spray on them is red.
i'm going to take a guess that you had pod filters on there. they got clogged with all that dust and collapsed due to vaccuum. (?)
so what's your plan to get it all out?

|dvyce||Also, are air filters supposed to be wet? there was some sort of red grease on it. The bottom of the filter ripped and got logged in my throttle leaving it wide open. But the filter had some greasy substance on it, is this normal?|

pop open the airbox lid and pull the air cleaner
you might have something down in your airhorns
mice, maybe? seriously, the damn things get into airboxes and build nests!
let us know what you find.
