Hi Guys,
What oil would you recommend for use with the air filter? I have heard that car auto gearbox fluid was OK
Thanks

Auto gearbox oil is fine for longlife paper hybrids like the K&N or Pipercross but whether it's best on foam I wouldn't like to say. Probably it is, as the main thing is that the foam is sticky and TQF like gear oil is sticky compared to engine oil.

Hi Guys,
Had great fun cleaning  / oiling air filter today. I had to remove half the scooter panels to get at all the screws holding the lhs panel in place!! Am I missing something here or is this normal procedure?
