How often should I change the air filter on an ATC 250R?

Are you supposed to change the air filter only when it is visibly dirty? or should I change it when I change oil? Basically looking for advice on how often should I change the air filter on an ATC 250R.

Many Thanks!

It's too bad that the 250R doesn't have an engine hour-meter, but it doesn't. Even with an hour-meter (or odometer), the riding style or riding environment has more to do with how often you change the air filter, than the amount of hours on the motor, or the number of months between changes.

Air filter changes on a 250R, or any 3 wheeler, should be done based on physical appearance. If you can see buildup on the filter face, change it. I wouldn't waste time tring to vacuum it or blow it off. Air filters are a small investment in your motor's health.
