Air filter oil help

2010 550S. I was told I could use K&N air filter oil spray on my air filter. I bought some and sprayed it today after cleaning. My foam air filter is the rectangle one. Light blue on the down side. Dark grey on the upside. Was told to just spray the light blue side? I haven't put it back in yet. Should I? How much should I have sprayed on it? Might sound like a stupid question I know.

The filter should have a uniform coating of oil throughout the whole filter. I don't use spray on with my foam filters i use notiol that you put the filter in a ziplock dump a bit of oil in and work it into the filter and then let the rest drip out for a few hours..
What did you use to clean the filter? Dish soap i have found is not strong enough to remove the oil oil out of the filter

Nothing better than riding with friends and family

I had the same filter and I use K&N oil. Spay a light uniform coating, a coating so you can see both the oil and the blue.
