ok so maybe paper isn't the best word for it... Cotton sheets would be a better description, being that there is 100% paper filters out there... either way my point being is that K&N oil was not designed for foam, but for their cotton filters.

jpalessi,

I am on you site and I think I am going to give Lucky 7 a shot. But do you have an MSDS sheet so I can see what it is made of? I would hate to spend 10+ dollors for a repackaged Moto Oil when that is like 4.00 a quart. I am also going to be picking up some of your engine sealer.

Thanks Jason

I dont have a MSDS sheet YET... MY stuff was deigned and formulated from raw material in the lab of EB MODS after countless hours of testing on the flow bench and track.. I'm working on having it mixed in bulk at a bigger factory due to a very large order of filters i have in production, that all need pre-oiling.. so once my 250g tote comes i'll have a MSDS sheet..

kyosho green oil protects very well , application is a breeze and the oil stops dirt from getting through the filter very well . haven't had any issues whatsoever with it .


and yes ............. really


i have used kyosho blue , k&n , rock , jp1 , rbmods air filter oil .

rbmods was also another great one as well as mugen


mugen and kyosho share alot of similarities japan companies

granted i have not tried every kind of oil on the market but a few

Smile Team Associated

Team Associated pre filter oil is great due to the thicker and sticky formula.

Regular filter oils are too thin and allow dirt to get through.

trust me....

PJ1 is good, however the PJ1 filter cleaner isn't so good. The best cleaner I have used is the Klotz filter cleaner, I am pretty sure it is just kerosene in a spray can. The Klotz filter oil wasn't tacky enough for me. I highly recommend some food prep gloves for oiling filters. They are cheap, you can get like 500 for 3-4 bucks. I peel off 10 or so and stuff them in the center of a paper towel roll for storage. Put glove on, spray filter with oil, mix around real good making sure the filter is even in color, then peel the glove off turning it inside out making a little baggy.

I like the K&N aerosol. Spray it on, roll the filter through a paper towel and ta-da, ready to go.

Easily applied; "Maf sensor safe" also means it won't foul glow plugs...

Used it for years, no problems. I usually change my outer prefilter before the main and that's it. My inner never visually gets dirty (Proline and Losi filter assemblies).

I also put some light grease (any kind of tacky 'ole "black grease") on the captured ends of the main filter to prevent any leakby.
