    Getting ready to take the bike in for the 5K service. Should I be cleaning/re-oiling the filter in between service intervals or are 5k mile service intervals enough under normal driving conditions?

    It states 50,000miles on K&N website. I do mine every 5000 miles.

    Just did mine today, once a season is all you have to do.

    I do mine once a season and only if it's dry looking

    Down here in Fl with all the dust and sand, not to mention the love bugs, I clean and reoil mine 3 or 4 times a year.

    Just like oils you will get many answers, it really depends on your riding conditions IMO

    Oiling a KnN A/F do you just mist it with oil or give it a good spraying? I just got a new one and it tell`s me nothing about how to oil it?
