what brand is the filter oil,
i have been using no-toil, i seem to use a ton of it to get my moose filter reddish through and through, i know i probly use too much oil, so i just take another dry filter and stuff it in the bag and work the both of them together until the 1st on seems evenly coated, so far i havent sucked any oil along the intake boot so it must be ok,
the bonus of this system is the second filter is almost ready to go with just a lil more oil in the bag,
hope this helps

it is all good though, the learning curve is huge on this site, i have also learned a ton of stuff that i never even had a clue before either,
take the filter in you hands, you see that little stem sticking out that goes right through the filter gasket surface (black side) just unhook it from there,
now just lightly lift the filter away from the plastic thing inside, now it will only be holding on be the center piece, just give it a slow firm pull and the foam will work its way off that piece, it will feel like it is about to rip, but it wont, now you can clean that filter really good,and then you can scrunch it up into a little ball in that plastic bag, when you put it back on it will need to be pulled right back through that center hole all the way, after awhile it will seem like no biggy,
good luck hope this helps, btw what are you usiing to clean the filter?

The round plastic piece slides of the prongs. Then the filter comes right off for easy servicing.
The brand is Maxima...bought it at the local Yamaha store. I thought 1/2 bottle was way too much as well but the inside of the stock filter was still yellow so I kept adding. There is nothing to wring out which is why I'm confused. Then again the stock filter isn't all that easy to wring out given the plastic frame. I unhooked the frame but it still has that plastic piece going through it which keeps me from balling up the filter. I have a uni filter coming so hopefully that will be a little easier to work with.
