Been a while since I cleaned one myself... but I know I didn't spring for the 'Cleaning Kit'. I'm pretty sure I just used soap & water.

Re: K&N

I run one in my truck - helps a lot if you have a compressor to give it a good blow job after the washing...

What part of "do not used compressed air" in the directions did you not understand??

Re: K&N

I figure if you use it in the "correct" direction, it is not detrimental. Enlighten me if I am wrong - seriously!

edit: Directions? What stinking directions?

The link above, and in the documents that come with the filters and the cleaning packs, clearly state that compressed air may perforate the cotton stuff and blow larger holes in it.

Re: K&N

OK, point taken. Although I only gave it a "light" blow job, not full 90 psi. I will give it a visual inspection soon though. Thanks!

Re: K&N

I have always used a mild clothing detergent(not as harsh as regular soap). Let dry then use the K&N spray oil(VERY LIGHT!). Let that dry and install.

Yep... I have a large (16 oz?) can of K&N's oil in my garage. That can alone is probably a lifetimes worth.
