Just got two new foam air filters for my sl350 k2 and have a question. I've gone through my honda service manual and there is no mention of oiling the filter that I can find. I know the newer bikes have oiled filters. Were these originally designed to not be oiled or have I just missed something? thanks - dave

Idk much about the SL's but if it originally had a paper filter then you would not oil it. With foam you need to oil it to keep particulate out.
