Your question: How long does it take for a dirt bike air filter to dry?

Submerge the filter completely, squeeze out the excess oil and let the filter air-dry for a minimum of 12 hours. Lay the filter flat with the logo facing upward while it dries. After the required time, massage the oil around the filter again to get even coloration on the filter before installing it in the bike.
