I've got a kit sitting here somewhere. Comes with cleaner and oil to re-oil the filter.

What everyone else said.

Bought mine from Demon Tweaks, did it every 6 months as I had a snorkel on as well.

Hellfrauds do stock them. I bought one a few months ago to clean the filter in my PRM intake. Still haven't got around to doing it

It's well easy mark. Take the filter out of the PRM by unscrewing for small screws which you will find as they are dimpled , just break the seal on the sticker that covers them. The filter slides out. Spray with K and N cleaner, wash under a tap , then leave to dry overnight. Re oil in morning, Easy , even I can do it

The K&N cleaning kit shouldn't cost more than a tenner. When you oil the filter, make sure you wrap it in newspapers for the excessoil to drain away.
