Question about Harley Davidson FLSTC Heritage Softail Classic Motorcycles
It is best to oil the filter on most of the after market air filters to catch the finer particles of dirt that might otherwise get through the filter. As to what to use, since I'm not familiar with that particular filter, it depends on what the filter is made of.
If the filter is made of foam rubber, you can purchase both the foam air filter cleaner and the foam air filter oil with which to keep the filter clean and ready for use. Most any place that sells off road motorcycle accessories should have this stuff. If your filter is a cloth type filter, like a K&N, filter, K&N sells both a cleaner and an oil. Personally, on these filters I use a cleaner like Dawn dishwashing liquid. Wash and dry the fillter well and then LIGHTLY spray the filter with the K&N oil. A little goes a long way.
Do not under any circumstances use automatic transmission fluid to oil your filters. It is a petroleum product and will damage the expensive filters.
