Someone correct me if I am wrong, but if we are talking about the stock filter, it should be oiled. Otherwise it won't catch the amount of dirt it was designed to. I bought a filter oil that is spray on from my dealer. It dries sticky, seems like it will do well.Lucky#13 said:THEN ..... a little mild soap and water..... let it dry.... put it back in....replace tank & any plastic , and she done.
Paper elements are not as reusable as the stock. Also, it seems to me that the wet filter will filter more dirt better (more efficient). I have not done any research in this area though. The down side for the foam is that you definitely need to keep it oiled for it to do its job, otherwise, it won't be filtering very well.MrSciTrek said:Is a paper element filter not good enough? Or not available?
well, these instructions are already covered in the owner's manual...mst3k4ever said:how about pictures and putting this in the How To section?
Geez... I never even considered that! Thanks.Super Sneaky Steve said:FYI- You don't have to take the tank off. All you need is a buddy to hold it up for a moment or wedge something in there.
