    Default Advice on oiling my K&N

    Hi all, just pulled my filter out to inspect and decided its time to clean,
    its done 37k in my present car and about 20k in my last, i'm sure they recommend a clean at 50k ! Glad i did though, could of opened a second
    hand dead fly shop ! its nice and clean now but i an not sure how much oil
    to put on and whether to oil both sides of the panel ?
    Cheers
    Kcs

    iirc i only used a small amount of oil on mine (just under the recomended amount) and left it to settle for a few days before re-fitting it to the car, even after this settle time i gave it a right good shaking to make sure that it wasnt over oiled and i did both sides too iirc

    Don't the instructions say a certain shade of red?

    Should have uniform red covering on the underside, none on the top iirc, the mist that comes out of the can is so fine it would be difficult to over do it
