oiling my unifilter

Hi everyone I have installed my unifilter on my 2014 1190S and am wondering what the inmates are using to reoil their filters.
Thanks Mike

I'd use regular two STROKE oil. Notice I didn't say... Cycle!

I used to use NoToil. Watch it, it'll break the filter down over time. Yup it'll mess the filter right up. And actually the oil used to eat thru the older bottles!

I use the manufacturers oil or whatever they recommend on foam filters, too much trouble with glue coming loose, foam rotting etc when the wrong stuff is used..

From experience or hearsay?
I've used Not Toil for years on my dirt bikes. No issue with the filters or the bottles.

Experience. I think the new bottles are resistant. Not sure if they changed the formula do it doesn't affect the filters. I used it when it first came out.

The problem seems to be with unifilter glue. Just watch it.

I've been using the PJ foam filter cleaner and oil. Seems to be fine so far.

I've been using the notoil stuff for years on my prefilter. No apparent damage to the foam or any glue.

Really like how easy it is to clean in the sink and doesn't pollute the environment.

Did I miss why the Uni branded oil and cleaner are a no go?
