    The manual says to soak the air filter in two stroke oil the same way you would for a push mower. Is this necessary?

    Oil is what helps the dirt particles to stick in the filter, rather than drifting through to the engine.

    Or......you can just buy some air filter oil. It's got some tacky stuff in it and it does a 100% better job than just oil. Any m/c shop will stock it. I'm sure that you can find some on E-Bay as well.

    It could be, but I'm not sure. I have some Bel-Ray stuff and another brand that escapes me at the moment. I've got some in both a spray can and a bottle. I haven't had to buy any for a long time.
