    Personally I would change it. Any maintenance is good.

    100 for filter if it's original it's probably due, but can think of better ways to spend 100 (86 litres of unleaded for a start)

    If you are sucking dust and dirt from inside a jet ski hull you have bigger problems....Ditch it...Do not replace

    If the ski is used in salt water it also keeps salt out of the engine. Salt build up was the reason I replaced mine but this filter doesn't look that plugged.

    I thought it looked ok, used in salt water now but before that possibly not (found leaves in filter!

    Will replace with R&D when I can.

    I've had a ski bog down with a bad air filter, It would run fine but occasionally you would feel it lose power as if struggling for air, shitty description but i'm sure you get what I mean. Just get the RIVA drop in filter, its a little more but in my opinion way more durable (Replaced OEM with this)

    You should replace that filter as soon as you pull that ski off the lot. Garbage
