  • Oil for stock air filter?

    I heard a while back that you gotta put oil in the foam inserts. Is this true? What would happen if I don't?

    If I need to put oil, what should I put? I decided to switch to stock because its very dusty and sandy out here and I want to protect the engine and carburetor as much as I can.

    I have a slimmer newer style stock on an older rc motor that might have oil in it still. Are these good enough?

    Any oil works. Just helps adhere the dust to the media.

      Ok so I'm guessing I don't need actual filter oil that is on eBay and ddm? I'll just use 2 stroke oil I guess.

      I went on a ride just now almost full tank and nothing happened. I guess it won't destroy your engine without the oil lol

        Extra dust would accelerate wear. I think ADA says Gp460 motors need a new piston ring every 8 hours of usage. Not sure what other motors are rated/recommended.

        Now filter oil might be easier to wash out of the foam. But I would just replace when needed and re-oil however you want.

          Every 8 hours??? That's ridiculous. What about the g43l?

            A g43l should last much longer.

              I'm still running the same 230rc on my sbf from 15 years ago. Never changed the rings ever. Still running decent.

              also I put the castor oil in the filter pads and it just stays clear...even the hp filters the juice was a big orange...hoping what I did was ok. I just put a bunch of drops on it...should I soak it wet or something?

                Fine mist/dab across the surface but not enough to cause the oil to be pulled into the engine and cause change in air/fuel.
