Foam filter oil alternative

6 posts in this topic

last fall i called my local dealer to order some foam filter oil for my bike, well it's well into spring and they still don't have any, said they need to wait to order an oil order like only 2 times a year. Anyhow I need to get my bike on the go and was going to clean my filter tomorrow and oil it up with something, what do you guys recommend untill i can find the proper stuff? I was thinking along the lines of like 0w30 synthetic motor oil, I also have some k&n filter oil kicking around, would this work?
