    I run a 14"x6" K&N air filter with a K&N pre-charger over it to keep sand out, how do I clean it? /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    if im correct on the assumption that its the foam surround around an open filter element, all you probably do is hose it out, let it dry, re-oil it, and go with it. Least thats how you clean the one on our lawnmower /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Well, this is the kind that is a silk screen, kind of like nylons but much stiffer. I would think hosing it out would work fine too, but just don't know cause I don't have the instructions anymore. /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    I would assume you use the same cleaner and oil as you would for the air filter.
