Hey guys, I have a 2009 yz450 and I'm running a pc racing stainless steel oil filter. Just wanted to hear from everyone about how they clean their reusable oil filter. I've done the search and there's just not a lot out there about the actual cleaning process. Thanks in advance.

I pour some clean cleaner through the center while it lays in a container then just agitate it around in the cleaner but not letting the old cleaner get back inside the filter.Then I blow compressed air from the inside out to dry it out.

Well I suppose I'm doing it right then. I spray brake cleaner (or carb cleaner, which ever I have handy) from the inside out while rotating the filter. Then I use compressed air again blowing from the inside out. Thanks.
