Can someone please provide the proper cleaning / oiling of this filter media please , and thank you . :nerd
I believe I have seen it where Lloyd himself said that is wrong and actually works against performance of the filter. But dusty is a bit more frequent like every 20k or soMine gets cleaned/oiled every other oil change with the K&N kit. Gets pretty dusty around these parts.
Did you mention to him about the filter being blue and not red MBX ? Just curious ... Kodiakwood says no oiling for the blue filter but I know the red ones need to be oiled , I have a red one in my Bullitt Mustang .I rang K&N tech rep who said when you cant see the wire mesh as distinct from the filter medium any more its time to clean, also said anywhere up to 50,000 miles!
So I leAve mine be till around 35,000 kms which works out yearly.
I try to stay off dirt cos of belt drive.
Please scan that and post an image, because I believe the Loyds filter is a coton gauze filter just like the K&N and they are to be washed and OILED. This has been discussed many times and many have called Loyds and asked, so if you have proof to the contrary, please share. :nerdFrom the literature that came with the filter
"Cleaning interval is 30,000 miles, clean with soapy water, no re-oiling is necessary"
Get the K&N filter cleaning kit (can be picked up at almost any auto parts store in existence) and follow the directions :winkKodiak , you think mild dish washing detergent like Dawn is what they mean ? Something grease cutting like that ....
I couldn't come up with anything in the search , but that's not saying much .... SuperD , do you know what Lloyds actual instructions were for servicing this filter ? I have 3 of the K&N service kits in my garage so I am quite familiar with them .This has been discussed many times and many have called Loyds and asked, so if you have proof to the contrary, please share. :nerd
Interesting... saw a K&N warning not to use their clean & Oiling kit on Victory performance air filters that look exactly K & N they said something about chemicals in kit cause failure of filter gaskets... maybe corporate BS. Anyone else have real world experience? I have Vic hi performance air filter and it's time for a cleaning.I got the K&N kit, cleaner and oil, and used the directions that came with the kit. Works fine, lasts a long time.
