If it is the same filter as the Kawasaki
1500 JET SKI STX-15F 04-05 I have them
Ea Motorcycle Oil Filters (EaOM)
AMSOIL INC. revolutionized the filtration industry with its introduction of AMSOIL Ea Air and Ea Oil Filters. For the first time exclusive nanofiber technology – the same technology used in the Abrams M1 tank and other heavy duty applications – was made available for automotive applications. Now, AMSOIL has made this outstanding new technology available for motorcycles.

If it is the same filter as the 12F and 15F then you can use Wal-Mart Super Tech ST6607. It is $2 and readily available. I have been using it in my 12F and have turned others onto it and they are using it with no problems. The Purolator Pure One is the best. Check the following for more info. http://motorcycleinfo.calsci.com/Fil...tml#OilFilters . I have no idea if the 250's use the same filter as the 12F and 15F so you might want to verify that first?

How to get Oil Filter Off?
Has anyone talked to any Kawa dealer service guys who have
attended the Kawa School? I'd like to know how they get the
oil filter off. Once I know that I'd like to get some of these
Amsoil Filters. There is a big difference between filter brands,
most of the US car spin on's aren't worth #$#$#$. There are
good ones available, but few people understand that you have to
pay more than $3.29 for a filter!
I assume the $14.75 is a list and you get your std discount, plus
Looks like a good filter, can we get confirmation this is correct
one for this Ultra motor??

According to Kawi's online parts diagram, the 250X, 12F and 15F have the same oil filter part number of 16097. I would run the Purolator Pure One PL14620 on the hi-po 250X. It is one of the best oil filters made and available at any autoparts store. The filter media, construction, filter area are all superior to the stock Toyo Roki filter. For those that like oem filters only, for whatever reason, Honda's Aquatrax filters are identical. This is if you have a Honda dealer closer than a Kawi. Good for future reference if anyone cares?
EDIT: Forgot to mention that the filter is hard to get to but manageable with proper twisting of the body. I suggest putting a rag under it to catch oil that spills when removing the filter. I used a band type (small size) oil filter wrench on my 12F. They sell a socket type removal tool that you can attach a ratchet to, but my filter would not come off using that. Also make sure to lower the front of the trailer when pumping the oil out of the dipstick tube. You will get more out this way.

I just ordered 4 filters 3 days ago. Kawasaki website states Ultra 250X uses 16097-0003 only while 15F can use 0003 and 0004.
So I bought the 16097-0003 which few dealer stock them as of last week.

They all supercede anyway. It is the same filter. There is an arrow on Kawi's parts description that tells you this if you click on it. If you must have oem only and buy in bulk like that then http://www.ronayers.com is the place for buying parts. It is less than your dealer for oem parts. It is $8.48 for the oem filter here. What did your dealer charge you?
