I'm working on my 1979 CM185.

I have the flash/backfire suppressor and the filter is on order that wraps around it. I understand I'm supposed to soak it in gear oil first. What a mess that sounds like.

Is there a better alternative?

Thanks.

This is why my life lesson has always been, "I'm still learning!"

Instead of gear oil for the air filter pick up some air cleaner oil, auto parts and motorcycle shops carry it. Comes in a spray can and not as messy as the gear oil.
