Supposedly this product in environmentally friendly; however it is a pain in the a** to use. The cleaner is a power that needs warm water and time to dissolve, and it is difficult to get an even coating from the filter oil. Aerosol cans are just easier to use.
I like enviro approach and cleaning is so easy and thorough. but I hate applying the oil. Even with gloves everything gets so sticky and you need the powder to clean it. I'll stick to k&n. Cleaner, easier and didn't notice any performance with no toil.
This came defective, the grease tube was split open on the seam and grease was all over everything else in the box. I didn't feel it was worth my time to try and send it back or anything. I used the filter oil on a brand new uni air filter for my sons ktm50. The air filter in the ktm50(in my model year) is flat, so it was easy to get the oil on the filter. I soaked it in a sealable tub that I poured the oil into. It didn't seem all that tacky to me and I wonder if it would work well. I have always kind of hated that I can't clean modern air filter oil with gas or some other solvent. I have to buy the special cleaner and I can never seem to get it completely clean, no matter how much cleaner I use. I grew up using gear oil. it's fairly sticky and seems to stay that way for long enough. it's also very fast to clean and dry. I'm not sure this is worth the extra hassle.
This works well as long as you’re not currently using bel ray filter oil. Go ahead and break out the gasoline for that stuff to come off. Once it’s clean and oiled with this oil it cleans extremely easily with the cleaning solution. Seems to work well and not as messy as the bel ray, but I wonder if it doesn’t trap as much
Great products again from no toil. the cleaner is super easy and i like it the most of the the 3. The filter glue does take some effort to work it into the filter and the grease is a little messy but still work great!
I read great reviews about this product but was pretty disappointed when I actually used it. The Cleaner did not seem to do much of anything at all and I ended up using another product to get the old oil out of the filter. When I used the filter grease the back end of the tube blew out all over me and ruined my pants. I was not happy about that.
After 30 years of cleaning filters, finally tried this. Throw it in the washer after riding, extremely easy. Also works well, always check my air boot carefully for any dirt, have never seen anything past the filter.
The liquid oil is easy to apply and is very tacky. Seems just as good as traditional air filter oil. I confidently use it for my motocross bikes. The rim grease also seals great. I haven't used the cleaner yet but I can imagine it is a good quality as the oil and rim grease. The best benefit is that I don't have to worry about disposing of the oil and cleaner after use. Make sure you have a small tub to put the oil in. You can then really coat your filter then squeeze out excess and let dry. The oil can be saved and reused in the tub. Will only buy this kit for now on!
I have used all kinds of air filter oils and cleaners over the years and No Toil is by far the best and easiest to use. The cleaner has the filters looking brand new in a matter of minutes( and cleans your hands pretty well too). The oil goes on very easy and once it sets up it is very tacky. The cleaner only works with their oil though.
If you gotta handle your oil filter into a tight space after oiling with this oil your in for a bummer, this super sticky gunk gets all over everything and is a pain to get off even with the cleaner. I'll just stick with something else from here on out.
I use this oil with the Twin Air foam filter and it works great. The No Toil is cheaper than the twin air oil and it works just as good. It cleans up extremely well and is tacky enough to be use in very dirty riding conditions like the rocky mountains in Colorado, and the dunes in Utah.
Been using old dino oil and gas to clean it for a while. This is much easyer to clean. Only takes about 2 minutes and the filter comes out spotless! no problems with it on twin air brand filters unlike what i've read about the red stuff. I'll never buy other air filter oil again,
The grease tube split at the seam which seems to be a common thing these days with multiple items of this type that I have used (some related others not). No problem, just slipped it into a sandwich bag to keep the mess down.
You will need a traditional filter cleaner when transition from petroleum based to bio based filter oil so plan on having something strong on hand for the initial wash if using the old stuff.
Once setup with the new stuff the cleaner works as advertised, is fairly quick and painless. Much less of a mess than dino oil.
Application of the bio oil is a bit messy. I started using a 1 gallon zip lock bag to reduce the mess and save some filter oil. Drop the filter in the bag, add some oil, seal, massage around to cover the filter. Then pop the bag open and squeeze out excess back into the ziplock bag. Press out the air and save for the next re-oil session.
This is the green oil with the water based (vs alcohol) carrier so dry time takes longer. I usually put it back on the filter frame, and back on the bike. Then leave the door open overnight to allow the water carrier to flash off. Close the door the next day and you are good to go.
If doing filter changes between motos or whatever you had better have a backup that you can rotate in due to the dry times.
No issues with the backfire screen removed and another brand's filter. Likely removes one of the two flammable risks. Will swap out filters to the notoil one when this one wears out to get the additional flame resistance as final insurance.
I like this option for filter cleaning and engine protection. I use it on a Twin Air filter. Every time I pull the filter off, it's pristine behind it. This stuff is so easy to use. To think we used to use gasoline!
This kit is awesome. Make sure you use HOT water with the detergent and the oil and rim grease comes right off. No more rubbing and squeezing... the dirt and grime comes right out. This is all I'll ever use, and it's dirt cheap.
I use no-toil filter cleaner oil every time i clean my air filter. I watch it go from pitch black and cruddy to perfectly clean in minutes. The oil is super tacky and stops every peice of dirt. After a month of not cleaning it the outside is black and the inside looks like it was never even used! I Swear by no-toil oil and its the only oil i will buy!
