Just the inner. The outer is a pre filter. But if the track is real dusty then do both.

I went out and bought several outers for my filter... I oil the inner and leave the outer dry.... I then change the outer after every race or 2 depending on how dirty it looks.... Most of the time, the inner is still spotless!

Personally what i do is run a one stage filter which oiled and then wrap it in sports wrap (the breathable kind), which acts as a pre-filter. Then after every 2 or so runs/quals I unwrapped it and replace the outside wrap. This is much more cost efficent. Thought I would pass on some good money saving info.
