Re oiling the JR Air Filter

What to do you guys do for cleaning and re oiling of the JR (Blue) Air Filters? I can't find any JR re oil kit. I have K&N oil kit from my past car. Is this what most do?
Thanks.

Got mine from GS too. All you want is blue filter oil. You can use K&N, and if you do, all that will happen is that you will get a purplish filter.

When you get the GS filter does it need to be oiled before you install it?

I bet places like Summit or Jegs have the Accel filter oil as well.

Re oil every 12k to 24k I think is what it said on JR web site. Depends on how dusty your area is imo.

They probably do, but I cannot find it on their websites. No prob - blue filter oil is common enough:

Volant (another blue filter oil):

be careful not to over-oil. i bought the kit from GS and definetly over oiled my filter...clogged my maf and had to pull that out and clean it. does anyone else find that it is hard to oil the filter in a uniform blue without over-oiling? it seems like in order to get a uniform color, my only option was to keep spraying and sprayin.

Even if you over oil it, you can take the hose from a shop vac, stick it in the filter and sort of vaccum out the excess oil.
