I clean my airbox after every ride. I will take the filter off and inspect it. If it even looks dirty or like it needs oil then i change it out. If i ride in a dusty situation where my air filter got really dirty. Then i clean airbox and replace filter with a clean and oiled one. I would also change out the motor oil and oil filter incase some dirt got past my air filter.

There seems to be allot of ring failures due to dust in these motors. I honestly believe it's a design flaw in the pistons. I've tore my motor apart quite a few times with variable hours and have noticed wear on the skirts.
Even on tear downs with 10-20 hours there was noticeable wear. It seems these slipper pistons are a bit to short causing added stress to the rings. If my thoughts have any ground this would explain some of the noise you hear in these motors also. ( the piston shuddering in the bore )

But anyway, I'll stop rambling. The best protection for dust would be a Uni filter with an outerwear. If enough dust entered the motor to wash out your rings the TB should be noticeably dirty as well. Check it out and clean as needed too.

I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.

Uni and an Outerwear on the lid IMO, less mess. Or both if you want to double bag it.
