Cleaning a K&N filter

I have had a K&N filter in my truck for a while now, and its way over due for a cleaning. I was just wondering if I have to buy the K&N cleaning kit, or if there is any other way of cleaning and regreasing the filter. I remember hearing that you could use WD-40 to regrease it, but I'm not sure if that would work.
Thanks for your time.

Re: Cleaning a K&N filter

Save the hassle and buy the kit. Both of my trucks run K&N filters, The kit is cheap and lasts for quite a few cleanings and re-oilings. I don't think that WD-40 has enough viscousity to work properly.
Just my opinion PJL

Re: Cleaning a K&N filter

The kit is probably the best way, but I had a K&N on a motorcyle and I used to clean it with (non-gritty) Go-Jo hand cleaner, air dry it, and re-oil with foam filter oil from the cycle shop.

The K&N Filter cleaning/oiling kit only cost about $9. So do the job right without having to worry about what works and doesn't work.

The kit will last you for many cleanings/oiling applications.

And remember(if it puts it in perspective), that $9 could save you a couple grand in a rebuild.
