Default K&N issue drop in filter

hey all

the other day the service engine light went on, not service vehicle. I came to the club and did some HW. either way i knew i was sending the car to the shop.

came back saying my intake sensor was covered in the oil from my K&N drop in filter i put in the box

anyone else have this, or is my bonneville special?

We have not had any issues with our drop in

Did you oil it, or just buy it and drop it in? If you cleaned it and re-oiled it, is it possible that you may have over oiled it?

When I got my Intense FWI last year the included K&N cone filter was pretty oily. I didn't think much of it but it killed the MAF sensor but I had a few extra sensors lying around so that wasn't a problem. I had my problem inside 200miles, 7k is kind of extreme I would think there wouldn't be as much oil on the filter at that point.
