Uni-Filter NU-6235 Kit Dual Stage Air Filters: This is the S10 oem fitment in Australia & not sold by Uni-Filter USA. It requires an ecu flash or corrected fueling & provides similar improvement as the Arrow header, the S10 responds well to improved air velocity, particularly at low rpm making slow speed fueling buttery smooth.

Cool It Thermo Tec Adhesive Backed Aluminized Heat Barrier #13575 Wrapped Air Box: can't confirm any improvement, but the theory makes sense.

The filters in my Australlian 2015 model is similar but different not crinkle cut but normal foam with internal spring to keep the shape, zip tied on. Use Castrol foam filter spray seems to do a good job. Intakes and throttle bodies nice and clean.

My only concern with this setup is how long does the foam filter oil really keep it's stickiness?

I have used No-toil and Maxima FFT on foam filters for years and the stickiness always seems to fade overtime.

If the air filter was easier to get to on the S-10, I wouldn't mind re-oiling the filter each year but with this setup, I am going to stick with the OEM paper filter.

Uni-Filter revised them from the previous red colour round design still with internal springs..mine are the latest design

You're correct...it does fade over time..I re-oil/clean once each riding season (may - oct), unless riding a lot of dusty off-road, then more often...Getting to the airbox has gotten easier & faster, so not as daunting as the 1st time..the 2 stages of foam do dry some what but still have some oil left, particularly the inner denser one....I use Uni's oil which remains tacky fairly long. The benefits of increased air velocity outway the inconvenience of the cleaning/re-oiling procedure for me. No doubt that the oem provides the best filtration...at the expense of restrictive air flow...which gets more restrictive the dirtier it gets...no perfect scenario :)

I also have Altriders. To get to the rad side allen bolt I just take out the two lower fasteners (where my knee is) the one on top and the one by the turn indicator. That gives enough flex in the side panel for my large, size 13 hand to get an allen wrench in to slacken of the bolt, then it will turn easely with my fingers.
For me the worst part is undoing the 3 airbox screws at the tank hinge.

Makes you wonder what Yamaha was thinking making an adventure bike with such a difficult air filter and spark plug access. that should be a 10 minute process on a bike like this. I am sure they figured most would use them like i do and not use it for a mud hole depth gauge in south america.
