Bent over at the dealer and spent $11 for Belray air filter oil :ride:

Once home, I thought about the K&N air filter oil that i have for my cars.

Whats best?

Use the Bel-Ray. The K&N oil is too thin and doesn't have the stickieness that the Bel-Ray does.

Do not use the K&N oil on your foam filter unless you want to buy a new Motor.

K&N oil does not have the tackiness and viscosity that a foam filter needs. It will just run right off of it. Don't use it.

Thanks for setting the facts straight guys! I'd like my motor to last for a really long time...
