    I have a K&N filter oil and cleaning kit, can I use this kit on my Rottweiler filter?
    I looked at the label and It does not say what the ingredients are.

    The cleaner may be ok, but not the oil. Use filter oil designed for a foam air filter.

    You usually find No Toil at dirt bike shops. It's also on eBay. :1drink

    No toil is good stuff! Lasted morroco just fine with the Rottweiler setup and filter skins both smothered with no toil.

    No Toil is just fine. There is a great kit with cleaner, oil and grease for the lip of the filter. There have been some rumors spread that No Toil is no good for these filters but considering the source of those rumors and their background in motorsports there is nothing to be concerned about. It is highly recommended by professionals for this application. It is not the oil to be concerned about though, it is the harshness of the cleaners FOR the oil. The No Toil cleaner is a different kind of agent that works well with the Rottweiler set up. K&N is for gauze and should not be used on any foam filter. It is too thin.

    I was wondering why you were looking for this stuff on IR.

    This is great, I have an unopened K&N kit in my shop but will be getting the Rottie kit next week ....... looks like more stuff for sale.

    Did you find a Canadian place to buy it?

    With the No Toil product you don't have to buy fancy cleaners to clean the filter. I personally use a scoop of Oxy Clean mixed in a bucket of water. Make sure the powder is fully diluted before inserting the dirty filter. Squish a few times and let it sit for about 15 minute. Then just rinse clean.

    You can even put the filter in the laundry washer if you want it super dooper clean. Just don't tell the Mrs...:rofl
