Why oil in the air filter?

I bought an air filter for a BS engine. I guess I never read the instructions on the back, but this time I did and it said to 'completely drench the new filter with engine oil' before installing.

Seems strange to me. I just figured it was like a filter for a car.

Why is this?

If your filter is paper(fan-foold),leave this day.Just put a little oil on the foam pre-filter.If your filter is foam,put a littie oil(about 2-3tea spoons)in it squese out then install.

The reason is to help dirt,debres,grass ETC.stick in the ail filter so it wont make it in yous engine to do harm.
