No toil comes in a areosal can now? When I was using it it was in a pour bottle.

Uni makes aerosol spray on oil and aerosol spray on cleaner. I bought the spray on cleaner by accident and used it, instead of my usually mineral spirits and that uni cleaner kicks a$$, Personally I think it is EASIER than no toil. Spray on wait 3 minutes then rinse in the sink. No tubs and mixing powders and such. Give it a try, $6-$7 per large can and that should clean 10-12 filters :D.

Hmmm :D Never heard of Uni cleaner either. If I see a can on the shelf at my local dealer or the TT store has some I might try it.

Momilkman,

I have tried to Uni Spray oil too. I used it because I ran out of No Toil and wanted to ride!! I seemed to use a lot more of that oil to cover my filter. At that time it was a Uni Filter. I practically used a whole 8 dollar can of the stuff. Uni is not bad, but in my opinion a bigger pain in the arse then No Toil.

The small cans of uni oil spray are $5, and i can easily get 5- 6 filters out of it. Maybe I am doing something wrong but I don't have any problems with dirt getting by the first filter. In fact I clean the inside filter about every three changes and at that it isn't very dirty. I just went to filter skins and like the way they work, only got one ride on them so I will see how it goes.
To the guys running filter skins do you have to pull the whole filter to change them. I think that it is a pain to pull the whole assembly off just to change the filterskin, I was hoping to be able to do it without pulling the filter out, any advice, please? :)

I put all my No Toil in a air-tight container and then when I need to oil up the filter I just soak it in the oil and wring the excess back into the container. No mess, no wasted oil and the filter is completely oiled up. I wear laytex gloves to keep my hands clean. Spray on sounds good but I'm happy with my process. :)

Jekel let me ask this question! I have never seen a filter skin so I don't know if this would work. give me your thoughts. Here is my idea, I don't care what anyone says a K and N filter will flow more air than any other filter on the market. However I am willing to consider everyones comments about a K and N plugging up and/or letting dust through. However I am confident that the K and N will stop as much dust particals as a faom filter. Maybe I am right, maybe I am wrong but that is not my issue with the K and N. My issue is that they are a pain in the butt to clean and re oil. So here is the big question! will a filter skin fit over a K and N?????????????????

"Will a filter skin fit over a K&N?? It might. The older 4 stroke ATKs came stock with a cylindrical K&N filter covered with a foam sock. This setup breathed very well and filtered very efficiently.

Dont waist your money on a filter skin. Steal one of your wife/girlfriend Leggs works just as good and the only thing you will have to be out is a
