How to clean your K&N Air Filter

Making sure you get the most out of your K&N Air Filter from both a performance and spend perspective is to use the K&N Air Filter cleaner pack that allows you to refresh your filter to like new condition. One of the biggest benefits of a K&N Air Filter is that the filter is washable and when cleaned regularly, the filter should be inspected at least annually. When the dirt in the filter collects to point that exceeds the wire mesh it is time to break out the K&N filter cleaning kit. Once you have the filter removed, liberally spray both sides of the filter with the K&N power clean air filter cleaner then let the cleaner sit on the filter for 10 minutes and maybe set a reminder. You do not want to allow the cleaning solution to dry on the filter. Then rinse the filter off with a low pressure water source (commonly referred to as the garden hose without a nozzle attached) from the clean side out, this is the side that goes to your intake and not where the dirt is captured. You can then give the filter a little shake to remove any excess moisture and set it aside to dry naturally.

Once the filter is dry you can now apply the K&N Air Filter Oil which is the same solution that came with your filter from the factory. Follow the application method on the bottle exactly as this varies depending on weather the liquid or aerosol product is being used. After about 20 minutes you can tough up any areas that are still looking a little less pink and then once dried, re-install your filter which is now back to its original factory performance levels.
