Air filter oil substitute
Hey all. I'm currently on the road in Syria and I just ran through a wicked sandstorm. The foam air filter on my KLR 650 needs cleaing in a bad way, but I'm out of air filter oil and I can't find any for sale. What should I use as a substitute? Everyone here suggests gear oil, which I can buy. Will this be a problem if I have to run it for a while? Also, would it be better to run a dirty filter with the proper oil, or a clean filter with gear or engine oil?
