New spark plugs..NGK CR8 preferred.
Clean air filter... BMC race preferred.
Fresh oil and filter.
Clean chain, and aligned properly.
Correct idle.

I would just say get a new one, but oviously time and money is an issue with that. Try a shakeing the dirt/dust out. Vaccum, or a spray can of compressed air.

You can blow out a paper filter with a air compressor. But make sure you blow the opposite way it is used... blow the air on the clean side so that you push the dirty stuff away from the filter instead of imbeading it into the paper...

But like SV said... a new one would be the best idea.

Don't get carried away with blowing off the paper filter. You can destroy it with the air if you direct to much pressure to close.

My last set I ran 10,000 miles and still ran excellent! I get alot better fire out of them than any other plug. I paid $14.00 for them at the dealer...so I don't know if I got ripped or not...I was just there buying a stator cover gasket and went ahead and got the plugs while I was at it...bad part is I gave the dealer the wrong bank card and I over drafting in that account which added another $25.00 on top of the negative I already went into from buying the plugs and stator cover gasket. I really watch which bank card I let the cashier swipe now...I don't even use that bank account...I don't know why I even carry the card
