Spray on (aerosol) foam filter oil

Hey all - So, I've just joined the 21st century and bought some spray-on filter oil for the foam filter on my ktm (I used to use the stuff in tins that you rub/squeeze in with gloved hands - very messy). Now I'm not sure how to put it on! On the can it says to clean the filter (done) and then spray it onto the fliter surface.

Does this mean just the outer surface of the filter - i.e. the airbox side, or do you need to do the inside too? Also, do you still need to rub it in or will it work its way in naturally?

Sorry for the dumb question - I just want to make sure my filter keeps a workin'

Cheers - Andy

don't throw out the gloves, you still need to work the oil into the foam. It's the same technique, it's just comes our of a spray can.

Damn! I know it seemed too good to be true

Still, I guess the spray can makes it easier to get even coverage.

Thanks for the info..

All the best - Andy

I too thought the spray tipe oil may be a good idea, but in the end it proved to be just as messy. However, I have some good news! I found a bidegradeable, water washable product called No-Toil. The product comes in two parts: The oil and a special water soluable powder for washing. For me, it transformed a dirty, messy, smelly and time consuming task into one a lot more pleasant. Take a look at http://www.notoil.com

Highly recommended, in my opinion
