Cleaning my post air filter. Do you think it would be fine to use k&N cleaner and oil for this?

The original filter came pre oiled and does seem to be pretty thick type oil.

Thanks boog. I agree about their filters. Don't use them anymore but still have a few cans of this around.

I started reading more about foam filters, I'm going to pick some up specifically for them. It is a lot thicker oil.
Thanks for the comments.

So glad I read the post about the post air filter when I first picked up my machine. All that dirt would have went into my motor.

Good info. I guess I’ll keep the K&N oil for the pleated filters only. Let us know what you come up with. Thanks. Boog.

I'll let you know what I find.
I'll still use the k&n oil on my S&B filter on my truck.

I have ran a bunch of uni filters . I know that oil is think and sticky. But I don’t think it was as sticky as the factory oil on the post filter .

I bought a brand at the cycle shop called "Fab 1". It seems to do good. The same stuff as in this link but my memory says it was only about $10 where I got it. https://www.amazon.com/Maxima-61920-FAB-1-Filter-Spray/dp/B000WK3NBG

And yeah, the oil that came on the filter originally was flypaper sticky. I'm surprised air could get past it.

I'm not sure if the Maxima Fab 1 is what the factory used but it's pretty tacky and its the same color - blue.

I went with "no toil" oil.
Getting the old oil out of the filter was a joke. I used the K&N filter cleaner on it twice and the no toil that came with the new stuff and still didn't feel like I got it all out. That stuff is thick!
