One thing to keep in mind, always ensure that the rubber seal is on the air filter outer edge, when installing a new air filter. Most of the new filters have them pre-installed, however there are still a few filters that may not have this air box to filter seal. This seal omission was a common failure on the gen1 V-Strom, when a new air filter was installed. Can do no harm to check first when working on the gen2 air filter.

^ very true and good point. My first replacement filter I bought for my '07 required me to swap the rubber seal off the old one.
