    Bah, use warm soapy water. (Like dish soap)

    But do use filter oil to re-oil it.

    And using the same oil may be ok.. Just compare the filter media to the K&N. Make sure its the same stuff.

    Okay okay, I was being a smartass.

    Garden hose & WD40 will work if you're cheap like me.
