Has anyone used the Uni Air Filter Service Kit or something similar?

A friend gave me this kit: and my air filter needs to be cleaned.

Anyone use this before or a similar product?

I use that oil for the filters in my dirt bikes. I wouldn't use it for the filter in the ninjette though, I just use cheap 10w30 dino oil for that. The uni air filter oil is really sticky/tacky which is what you want for a dirt bike that sees nasty off road conditions, but I don't know if it's what you want to use for a street bike.

I use a similar kit on my Pipercross air filter.

Word of warning... the oil is tacky, so you only need a tiny bit only on one side (facing away from engine) of the filter. Too much oil will cause air flow problems.

Use the cleaner outside and make sure the filter is completely dry before applying the oil.

I do not recommend using this oil on the stock filter as the pores are too small. Uni filter and Pipercross use only.
