No that's what you do to a K&N.

Stock you can blow off with compressed air but no oil, it's paper not gauze.

Buy a new one once you've done the work to get to it.

If you use a K&N kit and use the cleaner with water on the stock filter you will have a bad day, and what Pongo said.

It's probably not a good idea to blow out the stock filter with compressed air. You can clean the big stuff out a little by hitting it against something solid. Inertia will cause the big stuff to fall out.

Kuzco is correct about the stock filter being oiled. It even comes sealed in a plastic bag to keep the oil in place. As far as cleaning it is concerned don't wash it. Maybe try hitting it with some compressed air and a small brush to get some of the more stubborn debris. After the compressed air the filter will probably be dry as a bone so there is where the filter oil will come in handy. My mechanic said that he normally does this when a bike comes in for routine service and the filter is just slightly dirty. If it is really trashed get a new one. 30 bucks is cheap.
