Then today, it hit me...these filters are not like car air filters. Motorcycle air filters get dirty from the inside/out.
Huh? You lost me on that one.

I used to race stock cars. The air cleaners on the old carbureted engines surrounded the carb and got dirty from the outside/in. With a motorcycle, especially the 86 Shadow, the air inlet goes directy to the inside of the filter, the air travels from the inside/out to the engine...
Well, I'll be darned. I wasn't challenging you, just didn't know that. My last bike was 18 years ago, and on this bike I haven't had it long enough yet to have a reason yet to take a look other than curiosity.
