VEGAS BTW I used the oil from them a few times but I had to get it once locally and used K&N for 2 years now, no issues with it on the filter.. did not degrade the filter but If you can get the stuff they make I would get it.

VEGAS I use dawn dish soap... cuts grease well.. Just make sure you rinse it out well.
Was never a fan of using gas on how dangerous it is... I use to when i was a kid on my dirt bikes clean with gas, but I had a friend die from this.. so I take no chance.

06focuskid Y'all responses were about what I was planning on doing. Did y'all use just a regular mild soap like hand soap?

IT WILL BREAK DOWN THE FOAM AND CAUSE DAMAGE TO YOUR MOTOR!!!
this is how I clean mine

VEGAS i agree do not use the compressed air directly on it,,, i use it to blow off excess,, try to stay at least 12 inches away, your not looking to dry it..

this is why i said " then let it sit till it dried"
