I have the same set-up, but I've used K&N filters in my vehicles for about 7 years now. Getting the filter wet in itself is not a bad thing. Just make sure it's dry before using it again, so if you get caught in a rain, just let it dry out. When you wash your bike, NEVER spray water directly into the filter under pressure and never from the outside. Again, let it dry out after the fact. If you use a cleaning kit (by either Arlen Ness or K&N), spray the cleaner onto the filter, let set fot 10 minutes and gently rinse off the filter from the inside (hose, no nozzel and lower pressure). let it dry, re-oil as directed and reinstall. The good thing is that cleaning it doesn't need to be done just because it's a bit dirty. At some point, having some dirt on it actually helps it to function better (according to K&N).
