... How and why has No-Toil ever done you wrong?
I tried it a few years back and was very disappointed with it. For one thing, it's more work than my method. I can clean the filter in under a minute in mineral spirits and be done with it except for hanging it out to dry. No mess in the sink, nothing to discard except once every 8 or nine months I change the solvent and scrape the dirt off the bottom of the bucket. The other thing, and I'm told that they've improved it some, is that the oil doesn't retain its tackiness like FFT. I can leave an FFT oiled filter out for a month and it's still like fly paper. No Toil "dries out". This matters to me because the bike sometimes sits prepped for a race or ride for a couple of weeks, and also because I do 3 filters at a time and bag them for later use.
The mineral spirits works good to get the old oil off, then the bucket of soapy water gets out any remaining dirt.
I don't bother with that. At the risk of sounding like a lunatic, I don't care if the filter is 100% totally clean. The fact is that any dirt that's in the filter foam when I oil it is going to stay there until I wash it again. (if I oil it right)
Sorry too jump in but do you have too let them dry that long I just switched from no toil and tried bel ray. And probly went riding about a hour after I oiled it.
Filter oils, especially spray types, have light "vehicle solvents" that carry the thicker filter oil in a thin form so it can flow into and over the foam webbing. If you don't let that have enough time to evaporate, you can end up sucking some filter oil out of the foam and get it into parts of your carb. Or, it might drool over the inside of your air box and onto your swing arm.
In any case, remember that it's the oil and not the foam that catches the dirt. Oil your filters thoroughly, all the way through.
Just use some old gas cleans em like a champ
That's a really great way to poison yourself, or blow your whole garage off the lot.
