Well just as it reads. I just got my K&N air filter today. It comes from the factory pre-greased. But it on my-self and took it out for a spin. Noticed a weird smell coming from my bike, and noticed it was the air filter. Was I supposed to wipe off the factory oil? Or leave it on there and the smell is normal?

He is most likely french, considering he is from Montreal, Quebec...

But yeah, leave the oil there, the smell will eventually go away.

I just installed mine yesterday, and I now have about 50 miles in with it. I did notice a different smell for a short bit, but I figured it was just a car up ahead of me. Maybe it was the oil on that filter breaking in.
