    Remote oil filter?

    does anyone make a remote oil filter mount/kit for ultra 300x? What a dumb spot for an oil filter. Oil in the ski no matter how you go about it?

    never made a mess yet, just lay a good rag under the filter before you unscrew it

    I usually stuff several rags directly around the filter as well as under the oil cooler. I would definitely go for a relocation bracket though, with some -10 or so lines, especially if it mounted near the back of the motor.

    Now there would be a worthy upgrade-something that actually did something. A plate with two hoses screwed to the oil filter boss on the front of the engine leading to a nice accessable area fo a secondary filter mount. It's be a good way to make money for sure. Think about it easy access and no mess in the hull with no rags to leave behind.

    Except for the fact that oil filters have a check valve in them smart guy. Oil pressure is not an issue at all. Almost all worthy race engines run remote filters. Once pressure is built the check valve will keep the oil in the filter and lines.
    Why when you drain your oil does the filter not drain completely dry, or at all........ Oh yeah, check valve. Not a good argument!!

    Remote oil filter adapter adapter plates have been around for years and they work fine nicjac. As for reasons explained you are safe although you could put a low pressure check valve inline should it make you feel better. Who knows there may be something already available for the Kawasaki and just maybe those POS Ultras won't toss their cookies so often with a bit of extra oil in the system Google it and educate yourself. Here's an example.

    should have added, due to oil possibly bleeding back over extended periods of time, thanks but no need for the education been around long enough in the industry to know about remote filter locations and adaptor plates. go for your life hope it works out for you both

    For a filter that at a minim does not need changing but every 40 hrs I don't see the need. Just more clutter in the hull.

    These guys may be able to come up with the two housings then all you need is quality lines and fittings. Seems a popular mod for bikes and cars for easy filter access.
