+1... gas followed by mild soap (blue Dawn), air dry, apply oil, insert, ride on! I'm new to owning an XRL but unless it's airfilter differs from a traditional foam filter that's common on atvs, lawnmowers, etc. I'd stick to this method... Has always worked for me on foam filters.
Huh... Speaking of air filters maybe I'll check/clean mine tomorrow... Just acquired this bike a week ago... So far I've only de-stickered it from the previous owner, changed the oil, and got a tag! Went for my first real ride today... really liking the XRL!
Can't speak in favor or against the carb cleaner... never used it.
