    Spray-on filter oil is the least runny type. Chainsaw bar oil is cheap and tacky, but the filter needs wringing out properly.

    Not sure what you mean - do you mean what sort of filter element you should use, do you mean what sort of 'seal' should you use between the top and the bottom of the air box ?
    I once bought a bike, and pulled the tank / checked the airbox, only to find mice were nesting in the airbox. You could probably 'pack the airbox' with small rodents pretty easily .....

    Stock parts are pretty readily available (at least these parts) I'm in the US, and get filter element / airbox seal from the hosts of our forums, AF1racing
