its air filter oil
u MUST oil foam air filters (and K&N air filters) with air filter oil
its so when you suck air threw the filter dirt sticks to the filter and not go into your engine.
the only filters you dont oil is paper filters as seen on cars and some polaris quads but not many.
paper filters suck and brake down fast.
so make shure u clean your foam filter (and K&N) with water and a gental solvent (i use gasoline but something a little less harsh is better, esp for K&N. but for foam which i what i would guess u have being what comes on everything stock for the most part. gas works fine.) then rinse with soapy water then rinse with just water, then let it dry before OILING IT AGAIN with AIR FILTER OIL. (AIR FILTER OIL MOSTLY COMES IN CANS THAT U CAN GET AT A DEALER, AND CAN BE RED OR BLUE. AND JUST SPRAYS ON LIKE PAINT)
the red sticky oil at the bottem of your air box is just extra oil that driped off your filter, which shows it was oiled enough. make shure to get every spot of the filter next time when oiling
