    Air Filter Clean

    Hi guys, im going to check the plugs on my 2000 Mille this weekend and while im at it i thought i would clean the air filter. Am i right in thinking petrol would be the best cleaner and do i need to oil it up afterwards and if so how much oil? Cheers

    Hi Just replied to you on another thread, If you have an after market filter KN or Pipercross, pipercross is a foam filter you can wash it in hot soapy water and use a degrease if you have a compressor you can blow it dry or you can buy a kit that has a cleaner and oil, Happy spannering

    The k&n is more restrictive than the aprilia oem paper one so actually reduces airflow and slightly restricts power..

    I would like one of Tashs airbox mods but just cant afford it right now
