Air Filter Oil?

and they recommend K&N oil but say any oil will work and the guy is simply using left over clean engine oil. Obviously with changing my oil today I have some clean oil left and I'm wondering if I can use it. I know its only saving me about £15 but still its better than nothing.
Does anyone else just use normal engine oil on their filter?

I am guessing having never been there but you probably don't ride in a very dusty place!

There was one thing that caught my eye and that was they said that canola oil works great for air filter oil.

you'll save a few bucks on the oil, but you're taking a big risk with your engine. i'd rather spend the few bucks (or pounds, or euros) on the right stuff to protect that expensive, high performance engine.

One quart of bar/chain lube will go a long way.
people tend to over saturate the foam filter with oil. Go easy with it, you only need a little yet even coverage.
