    Do all oil filters work the same?

    I'm thinking about trying some of these since they're closer to my home than whatever BRP uses...

    Do they all work the same?

    I thought I saw a few people post while back that the K&N's were caving in on themselves. Which was due to the fact that through K&N's efforts to increase flow, they poked a bunch more holes into the little metal sleeve inside of the filter. Which under pressure made it cave in.......... Anybody remember seeing that?

    Yep but I know of OEM filters doing the same.

    theres a few things that cause filter collapse.
    filter`s been in use way to long,
    oiling system malfunction.

    IMHO, I would never run filters for the interval that BRP recommends.
    I know it`s a PITA to do an oil service, but quite easy when you get used to it. high boost and modded ski`s should have there oil changed out frequently with inspections with every ride.

    even stock ski`s, what better way to protect your investment, cheap insurance, do the oil service sooner. 15-25 hours.

    also inspecting the oil filter itself, loking for metallic particals in between the pleats, some is normal, a lot is not...

    I could have sworn I`ve seen those red filters under a dif name, maybe ProFlo. I did use the K&N filters. but don`t rule out the BRP OEM filters, they are good as well...

    make sure to get yourself some new O - rings. and keep them on hand...
