Hi all, currently I'm using the above mentioned for 4years, never done any cleaning before and now it had turned very dirty and black. Should I change it to a new one or is it worth to pay and get it wash and clean at some workshop? Anyone can advise the charges for cleaning?

You are suppose to clean it every 50000km.

 

Else you can get a new one from Amazon. Much cheaper than buying locally.

You will need a proper cleaning kit (detergent and oil) for this. Can get the K&N air filter cleaning kit from MXtr@dings or Amazon.

better to buy the kit (can share with frens) and DIY. Cos if workshop spray too much oil, it may damage the airflow sensor, which is expensive to replace.

 

also, the kit instructions mention to leave it to dry naturally. Most wkshops will use airgun to blast it in order to speed up the process.

I have been using it for more than 5 years. you need to adhere to the instruction manual from the cleaning kit (consist of cleaner liquid spray and filter oil (red color)). It is time consuming as need to dry it completely the newly sprayed cleaner and water flushed filter before you soak it with the filter oil evenly through out the full length of the every 'fin' of filter...

There are a few ways to clean it, just find them via YouTube videos.

It is meant to be recycled unless really cannot make it.

Initial using the kits to wash n oil . After use up now using normal dish detergent to spray and
Wait for 10 mins and rinse. Flip away access water and leave it to dry for a day or two, it will be completely then.

During this period you may like to use a normal filter while a day or two later places back the k & n filter.
