    Cleaning Stage 1 Air cleaner

    I picked up some B-12 Aerosol carb cleaner and used it to clean the Stage 1 air filter. Man did it work well. The filter looks new. I even spritzed a little into the throttle body. This stuff work great and it's under $4 a can.

    The H-D Stage 1 A/C on my 2007 Ultra is stamped "No Oil".

    B-12 is not an oil. It's a cleaner that I use to clean off the oil that gets splattered onto the filter by the air intake.

    Been using Chemtool for years...and like the well liked SeaFoam product others like on this website, been using it as a gas additive for all my vehicles. Also, when rebuilding a disassembled carb, it works great...but be careful, it is a mighty strong cleaner/degreaser...so DON'T get it on painted surfaces or contact rubber parts, it will do quick work on them too...! And do not use it when rebuilding automatic transmissions or brake parts because it is a petroleum distillate...! :s
