I just put a K+N on my buddies '98 yzf600r with 20,000 miles and it still looked really good. I had cleaned it 1 time since he bought it. So I would say they last awhile.

I just replaced my air filter, i have 7500 miles on my bike, and the filter was NASTY!

So i will start checking mine every 5000 miles or so, and prob replace.

I always check mine at every oil change, it's an easy thing to do just to be safe.

I changed mine at 8k, it was pretty dirty. I just checked it again at 12k and it wasn't too bad so I'll probably just change it every 6-7k.
