I don't think you should use foam air filter oil on a k&n, and k&N filter oil is pink and as far as I know is sold only in a kit with the filter cleaner spray

I would use a pre-filter if one was offered for the V2

I do not know if non K&N oil will work or not, I've always just used the K&N stuff. When running an outerwear yes you do still have to oil the filter, I believe it is the oil that catches alot of the dirt. Also I'll just add that most K&N's come pre-oiled when new, so if it is pink in color there is no need to oil it thumbguy

I just clean my air filter with gas and let it dry and I then pour a little engine oil on my hands, rub them together and then roll the filter around in my hands.
Works for me :thumbsup:
