Hi,
Just wondering if any of you guys have an easy way to oil the sponge that goes around air filters? I just get sick of pouring oil right on the sponge and then ring out as much as possible, it gets very messy. Any tips would be helpful. thanks

The bag, that's the way I used to oil my dirtbike filters too. Oil it while it's in the bag, seal it up and work the filter to the top and "fondle it". The excess oil will settle to the bottom and you can get the filter out without spilling oil. The great thing? Seal the bag up and reuse it next time.

Amsoil makes the super tacky oil for their oil filters. They have squeze dispensing bottles and spray cans.

This oil is super for trapping dirt, but when you get it dirty the best way to clean it is with dish detergent and a good "squeezing" again. Still a messy job but no filtration is better except maybe the oil bath type found on old cars.

We keep a box of 500 disposable gloves, like the ones the sandwich artists wear, for this very purpose.

thanks,
Some great ideas. I didnt know you could use wd-40. That seems the easiest if it works just as good. I will give it a try.

wd 40 does work well but go to the local motorcycle shop and get some air filter oil, works much better along with the air filter cleaner. Just talking about the pre cleaner filter not the paper filter.
