This is good information to put up for owners. Maybe we should make this a sticky thread so that people can easily access it.

Have the owners on the forum been taking their bikes in for work at the right intervals? have you encountered any problems?

Where is the glue - let's stick this thing!

It is a very common interval of maintenance.

I hope to see aftermarket washable air filters for the GW. I hate spending money on replacing the paper ones! If one doesn't become available by the time I get my GW I will make my own using UNI filter sheet.

The only aftermarket filter I have seen so far is this one - INAZUMA GW 250 2013 | DNA Filters Ltd.
It is a European company but I haven't found a USA seller with them. I am also not sure how long these cotton filters last. Anybody had experience with DNA filters?

6. Delivery/ Transportation
The items will be delivered to the customers given address. You will get your item, if possible, in only one package via Hellenic Post or Courier. There are no additional costs if your order requires in a separate delivery due to technical or logistic reasons because of e.g. containing items that have to be packed separately or delivered in different ways.
The mentioned delivery time by orders paid by cash in advance apply upon receipt of payment. The delivery time within Greece usually takes 1 to 3 working days either via Hellenic Post or via Courier. International delivery time depends on the shipper that the customer will choose from our panel for his order(weekend and holidays excluded). If you dont receive your order in this time, please contact us.
The DNA Customer Support Team will always prove you that your order is shipped by sending you the tracking number of your consignment. You can use this number into the site of Hellenic Post (ΕΛΤΑ > Home) or into the site of courier to check where your shipment is.

They show an oil filter but NO air filter for the GW.

The DNA filter is an oiled filter not a dry filter. I used to own a lawn care business and I got so tired of buying paper filters that I switched to foam oiled filters. A friend of mine is an avid dirt bike and atv rider and he recommended the UNI brand. I have used them ever since and never has one wore out. They are easy to wash and re-oil. When I got my scooter I replaced the stock foam filter with a UNI filter{they had one for it} and it has severed me without issue for 5 years now. I have over 26K miles on a 2-stroke 50cc! and it still runs great - no loss of compression.

That is true but I would prefer to find an American outlet. I am also not sure how well these cotton filters last. They have to be better than the paper ones but how much better are they?
