I installed a K & N type filter from my local auto parts store on my 660 crank case. My question is, does it need to be oiled? Thanks for any input.

Without oil the K&N's won't stop small particulate. That said, very little air moves through these vent lines... but I'd still oil it to keep dust out when the engine is shut down and cooling off (it draws air IN then). Sure don't need to clean it very often, if ever.

Thanks for the info. It will be getting oiled.
