    I don't use K&N in my off road toys. My truck and cars have them. They breath to much off road, JMO and others.

    I've used UNI Foam Filter oil on my foam filter wraps on my Baja Bug VW's w/ dual weber carbs. It's thick and sticky, you can just spray it on.

    Iv'e found that it works better to put the foam filter in a plastic bag, spray it on them inside the bag, and massage it into the foam.

    For my TW, I just use engine oil and do it the same way. Put it in a ziplock bag, pour a little bit of oil in there at a time, and massage it in. It it looks over-saturated, you can squeeze it inside the bag to one side. No mess.

    Hope that makes sense.

    That's how I do it, zip lock bag. Thinking the spray would get better coverage and less squeezing, I'm sure I'll still need gloves.

    i've used Bel Ray. Works good but one has to be thorough and not skimp. I think the best way to oil a form filter is to completely submerge it in oil and squeeze, not wring, out the excess. No chance of missing spots this way. Having a small bucket with lid just for the filter oil makes things easy.

    Ended up getting Fab1 by Maxima as that's what I could get at the local shop. still need gloves but I was happy with the ease to cover the entire filter, no spots like I'd get pouring it on in a bag no matter how much I'd work it. Besides I want to be like grewen when I grow up.

    No Toil is the best, both for trapping sub micron particles and for ease of cleaning and re-oiling. I will use it forever.....at least until I can't ride anymore.
