clean filter + cold air = easier throttle wheelies

after cleaning my air filter and with the cooler air my front end came up tonight *much* easier than it ever did before... quicker and with less throttle... i wasn't even really expecting it and woop... up it goes

anyone else ever see really noticable differences like that? the air filter was really dirty... chunks of crud falling off after just a couple months of riding.
