That was all I did when i installed mine. The recharger kit is to clean and oil your filter again. You don't have to change your filter out every year. I've had mine on for almost two years and it is fine. When it gets dirty i clean it. Filters aren't that expensive anyway.

Ive got the aem cold air on my zx3. I just use the k&n filter cleaner kit works great! With all the road construction here in vegas i clean it about twice a year, after the winter and right around the new school year. ive had it for 2 1/2 years and no hydro or particle problems.

I would like to know, I heard the K&N filters aren't that great, they do increase horsepower, but at a cost, they don't filter out all the road junk.

That 'rumor' about K&N is crap..... there was a thread a bit back on here about it. Something like it filters 0.00000000000003 less dirt particles then (another brand) filter.....

Funny....
