Cleaning a Prefilter?

Does anyone here run a prefilter, and if so, what cleaning method do you use? If you are running a prefilter, is it still necessary to oil the element?

If its a oiled filter, yes. The oil is what captures the foreign objects and its what you wash off, then reoil to use.

Definitely clean it... the air passes through it before the other.

on my dual stage uni (dirtbike) filters, I always oiled the main element and left the precharger without oil.
