    Cleaned air filter, now what?

    Hey all,

    just washed my outer air filter in really soapy water, now I'm wondering do other ppl put something on the filter before fitting back on car? When we buy them they say something like 'pre oiled'. Do you guys oil them somehow?

    Cheers

    you can also go to most motorcycle shops that sell off road motorcycles and buy air filter oil there, usually a bit cheaper.

    If you can find it get a can of Klotz foam filter oil. One of those cans will last forever and is much cheaper compared to what you get in a small bottle of "RC" designated filter oil.
