Will K&N cleaner and lube work?

Ram Air says to only use their "specially formulated" product - maybe just to sell more of their product, but their filter is made of foam vs the k&n being a paper type material, so might not be compatible :confused:

I recall reading here that the Ramair filter fluid is a gooey mess.
The K&N stuff is mineral oil, not sticky at all.

Hmm. I have some of the Ramair fluid. I'll check it when I get home & try to remember to post back up on it

The Ramair filter oil is sticky to say the very least ! You have to put the smallest amount on your hand and caress it over the filter . Ramair says bout a spoonful , that's an awful amount of caressing to spread it evenly . If you close your eyes and wear rubber gloves it's kind of sexual . Like a 3 breasted nubile . That's what @Eas
