I change my air cleaner oil when I change the engine oil, with the same weight oil. Pull the basket before dropping the engine oil and let it drain out on old newspapers. Owners manual has good pic of where the fill mark is on the housing.

There will be a lot of dirt in there, too, that needs to be removed.
