Default Lloydz air cleaner oil or not oil

I've read many posts about oiling and not oiling the Lloydz Hiflow air filter. Seems both are right. I emailed Lloydz and this was the response. I'm posting this with permission from Danny at Lloydz.

"Our filter is dyed. You can clean it with soap & water, rinse from the inside out, let air dry and you’re good to go. The filter needs to be cleaned about every 20K.

This only applies to the XC filters that we’ve sold in the last 2 years. The earlier ones were oiled and they could be cleaned and re-sprayed with the k&n filter kit."

You don't know? Didn't you install it or ever service it?

I installed it, but how would I know which model it is? Confession: it is way overdue for servicing. I don't remember exactly how long ago I bought and installed it, but TOO long. I just don't like removing the gas tank.

I hear you!! I had a neighbor come over to carefully route the gas line out. I'm taking Danny's word and clean it at 20,000.

If the filter is dyed blue it's the new dry style.

Blue? I didn't see that in your original post. That gives me a possible way to determine which kind it is.

A short call to Lloydz will remove all doubt. Been here, done that.

With my TorqueTubes I clean an re-oil
When I contacted K&N requesting service interval they said up to 50,000 miles!
And qualified it by saying when you cant see the mesh on the filters anymore its time to clean.
Admittetly my filters are a damn sight easier to R+R than a Cross bike.
The filter medium may or may not be the same though as theyre the clean and oil they are probably same as the clean and oil type on Cross bikes.
Theres been a theory on here that the KNs filter better with some dirt buildup as theyre almost transparent when held up to the light.
