    You might be able to get them from your AMSOIL dealer or even an AMSOIL filter. You can find your local dealer here. https://www.amsoilinternational.com/

    Do you have NAPA there? If so the NAPA Gold 1348 is what I use.

    Is there any credible study that shows Wix or NAPA filters to be better than OEM? I've seen a few comparisons that show OEM to be the best among regular parts store filters. There may be some high performance ones that could be marginally better, but I don't think Wix or NAPA would.

    Yes there is. Might have to dig a bit, but there was a very good writeup on this a couple of years ago. If I remember right, wix and the NAPA gold were pretty good compaired to OEM. Stay the hell away from FRAM.

    If I get a chance, I'll see if I can find it.

    I only have some specs on factory filters for automotive applications. Here is some more information on oil filters. I hope this helps. http://www.amsoil.com/shop/by-produc...ers/?zo=367509

    wix would be the only other one i would use other than the oem , as long as the media in side is the synthetic or glass media thease filters filter down to 12 microns a normal run of the mill filter only dose 30 microns and a human hair is 70 microns

    i have tracked down the part number ,,,wix,,,,51348xp , and if you want a longer filter its a 57515 if some one can find out for me who can supply thease filters i would be very thank full if you could let me know , the suppliers in oz dont do them

    Wix makes both the Yami OEM and the NAPA Gold. That is why the number 1348 is in the Wix part number also. They are nearly identical. I have done 8 oil changes using the NAPA and absolutely no issues with my machine at all after 380 hours in less than 2 years. As long as you do your oil changes regularly you will be fine. Another tip is tilt the entire ski to the starboard as high as you can using a floor jack. You will be able to suck out nearly a additional quart of dirty oil compared to it laying flat.
