Have been using mugen filter oil for a while now and its great, cost me $20 australian for a large bottle and last for ages as only a small amount is needed, it is thin first out of the bottle so it spreads through the filter easily but dries sticky, but the only downside is its a bitch to clean out.

I'm sold! You should be shipping some of that, and some lucky 7 engine sealant to my door. I will say it sucked to have to pay 8.50 shipping though. (cheapest option available)

Thanks for all your help. I will try this stuff out and come back with my experiences!

Use the stickiest oil you can find on both the inner and outer foam filters. Install one of these cheap dry layer ebay filter covers over the top, and you will be amazed!

I have been using the Dubro for 2 years and it rocks! It's the stickiest stuff I have ever seen..Dirt does not even make it into the inner ring. Bitch to clean it out though

Get the oil and cleaner kit and your set for a good long time.

I have used the mugen and it was way expensive and strange very watery then when it hits the air it thickens up. My fav right not is kyosho filter oil it's blue and has never let me down. Good stuff

P-S-R all the way!
Foam and oil. No dirt ever made it's way to the inner foam.
I'll add a prefilter just out of curiosity.

I have been using PJ1 filter oil in a spray form. Works great last along time and is under 10 bucks. I have used this same oil on our motocross bikes for years and has proven to work good.
