Want to clean the air filter on my TW. But, living on an island, no air filter oil is available. I read in an older post (2007) where someone recommended 10W30. Is this still a viable option?
I've never used the veggie stuff, but I don't see why it wouldn't be fine. I used to use glycerine on some of my old gofast stuff.
I put my filters in a Ziplock bag to work the oil into them. No mess.
I ruin 1.6 t shirts per month doing crap like oiling my filter, changing oil, fixing something etc
I just kinda thought of it as normal operating cost of being me.
Concerning gear oil: Too viscous. Would be like running with the choke on.
You want something with catches majopr particles, yet allows air to pass.
