Oiling Air filter!

I heard from a moto guy that when they wash their air filter you have to put some kind of oil to catch dust? Is this a thing in karting?

Yes, its absolutely a thing in karting. Really important in sandy areas.

Really depends on what type of air filter you have, if you even have one. A foam or fabric filter is best to oil, some of the CIK airboxes use a paper filter which shouldn’t be oiled. Some of the airboxes don’t have a filter at all, and people will use oil or grease inside to help catch dust and debris.

Correct it depends on which filter you are running. Oil is good for the sponge-type or wire/fabric types. If you decide to oil it, use a specific cleaning and oil kit, like the K&N. Anything else will make it a pasty mess really fast
