Can I clean my DNA air filter w/ K&N's filter cleaning kit?

Recommended Posts

Hi,
     I have a DNA air filter installed on my bike.  After ~12 k miles on the bike & recently noticing torn blue shop towels in it (must have been a mice nest at one point), it needs to be cleaned.  I know DNA sells a $20 cleaning kit (not including shipping) BUT just wanted to check if it's a big deal if I simply use K&N's air filter cleaning kit which is available on amazon for cheaper.

Looking forward to some thoughts.

No prob. Use what ever you got/get, it's the same. I've actualy cleaned my gauze filters with mild dish soap in the kitchen sink under slowly running warm water for over 400,000 miles with no ill effects. I use what ever filter oil I have on hand to reoil. Get back out there!

Sweet!  I knew I was overthinking it.  Thanks.
