Why does the Air Filter get so dirty?
I had my 700 serviced by the dealer last summer (first service) and put about 400 miles on it during hunting season. I was not driving in dusty conditions, more wet than anything but when I checked the filter this spring it was real dirty with dry leaves in the box, small twigs, dog hair on the foam, and black oily looking dirt all over the filter. I thought I better check my Rubicon because I haven't looked at the filter in three years. It looked new!
The location of the intake doesn't look all that bad. Comments?
