RV8 K&N Air Filter
In line with the RV8 maintainence schedule I have just cleaned my K&N air filter at 50,000 miles - which in fact was not really required !

For those interested I purchased the cleaning kit (K&N Air Filter Recharge kit 99-5000) on line from Amazon for 12.99 .

RV8 K&N Air Filter
This is a chore that sometimes gets forgotten, Peter. The filter slowly goes blackish and the air flow efficiency deteriorates as a result.
One can use something such as washing up liquid in order to wash out the grime. It should not be blown out with compressed air. The filter should then dry naturally. One then applies the special filter oil from K&N which will restore the reddish hue to the filter.
