Talk about sucking in a lot of dirt through those holes...yeesh.

Obviously, these filters appear VERY damaged.
Other than visual inspection, are there any tricks to determining if one's air filter has a tear in it?
UV light or something else way out there?
I clean my Kaw KAI foam prefilter and gently shake/tap out the core filter and look down the throat of the carb...but a small tear would sure allow a lot of dirt in. The main filters are replaced ~150 hrs...though, I've never replaced the foam prefilter, fwiw.
