I just got a few oem air filters for my yz450f and 250f and wondered if the oil that the manufacture uses to oil them is any good or should I clean them and oil them with belray or maxima foam filter oil to start? Thanks.

What oil? All my YZ's have had dry filters when they were new.

I'd check yours and re-oil it.

The filters are shipped with some sort of oil in them, probably just a 10w oil. I'll clean and oil them, thanks guys.
