What's the best way to clean and re-oil these things? I ebay'd one a while ago but haven't cleaned it yet. Do you need special oil? If so, where's the best place to get the oil -thanks

Icon5 Which kit do you prefer - aerosol or sqeeze bottle

Thanks for the info I'll check out prices at advanced auto vs. ebay.

Which kit do people prefer - the spray oil (-5000) or the oil in the squeeze bottle (-5050)? I'm guessing the spray is quicker to use provided you have an outside place that you don't mind spraying oil?

Hey, I know it's a personal preference, but since I haven't tried "recharging" the airfilter before, I don't know which I'd
prefer.

Justing looking for opinions from those that have cleaned and re-oiled their K&N filter. Do you like to work with the aerosol or squeezing out the oil? Is one method faster, more reliable? Thanks....

i prefer the aerosol, it's easier and you can make sure that you can coat the whole filter with it, the squeeze bottle makes it a little PITA

check your filter out..if its really dirty u might want to use the squeeze bottle so u get the cleaner deep into the filter and if its not that bad then just stick with the spray bottle
