isn't this just generic filter cleaner?, not foamy, but I just use the K&N filtercharger kit... it's usually on sale for like $10 at Lordco w/ shop discount.

Put it thsi way, if you don't know what sorta stuff cleans your intake, and you can't find stuff that can. Safest bet is to try it, and see if the filter disintegrates, but not to use the filter again, if you know you're screwed.

Totally off topic, but what the hell is a foam filter? I use the traditional felt-like material + metal mesh stuff, and it seems to work quite well for me

Hey that's great you have a gauze type filter, but guess what OP has a foam one! So if you don't know then maybe you shouldn't be suggesting anything. Spoon, ARC, Perrin come to mind in terms of Foam Filters.

Special: Let us know if you do find something though.
