I used to grease the filter until one day a bit of grease got sucked into the carb and it took forever to figure out why the bike wouldn't start. That was my bad though... in a hurry to ride and got sloppy with the grease. I have sense started using the Pro Seals, they work great on newer bikes that don't have the sealing problems that some of the older bikes used to have.
