OEM is big, not too expensive and works fine. Foam. I use engine oil and wash with Prepsol. Throw away and fit new when it starts to get floppy. Air filter oil and petrol washes are more messy and tend to wear out the foam much quicker.

Twin Air: A friend gave one to me a while ago, still brand new, supposed to be good.

Great, I'll go for OEM. Where is the best place to go? I want it before Sunday.

I went for the stock Suzuki last Saturday. Well that set me back R420. Nowhere else had stock of any aftermarket filters :/

But the Suzuki one works well, and was conveniently already oiled.
