    Hey, new to the site, first post....I recently bought some lawn equipment for myself to do a bit of part time work while I continue college. It's a country clipper with a Kohler 17hp motor. Anyhow, I'm looking for a K and N or other similar air filter that I will be able to clean rather than have to buy another one all the time. If anyone knows an online retailer that sells these I'd greatly appreciate it.

    On that Kohler 17 you should have dual element air filter. One paper and one being foam. A trick I learned years ago was to keep 4 or 5 preoiled clean foam prefilters in a plastic bag and replace as needed. You can wash out the dirty ones in warm soapy water and let air dry and then reoil and use again and again. I have known some guys to get half a season out of one paper filter by doing it this way.

    Good luck!
