Default Air intake filter replacement

I just bought my 87 GN and the air intake filter is filthy and I want to replace it. I measured the end and it looks to be 3.5 and it is like 14" long there is no box on it the flex pipe just sits up on filter

If it's a cone style K&N you can clean it and re-oil it

Post a pic if possible. The K&N is a serviceable air filter, no need to replace unless it's been damaged or in really rough shape. Other similar styles may not be.

I think you'll need to use a photo sharing website, not sure as I'm not all that computer savvy.
