My 96 El has a K@N panel filter, it's time to clean it, anyone got a special cleaner they find works well?

How about the proper K&N one?
And while your at it, try using the proper K&N oil to reoil it once it's clean and dry.

Just a though! ;-)

O, and before you ask, Repco, Autobarn or any other store that sells K&N products!

It'll flow the same as when it was brand new, considering they were oiled up back then!
