    Cool Aftermarket oil filters?

    What aftermarket oil filters (include part numbers) is everyone using?

    I am using a Purolator motorcycle filter Part number ML16817.

    I hope this is OK.

    I use nothing but the OE Honda filter.

    With the dry sump system the Oil Pressure spikes to a really high pressure that most standard filters will not be able to handle.

    You should use stock and stock only. Mainly because of the high startup pressures and necessary bypass valve.

    I was thinking about doing a thread about why. Last summer I made a cut away. At the airport now, maybe later this week.

    I have been using a k/n oil filter.
    Part#k/n 104.

    My Honda pwc dealer is over a hour away.
    Any thoughts on this filter?
    They keep them in stock at Jet Thrust which is a pwc dealer near me that sells Seedoos, and Yamahas.

    I am also able to order this filter at Advance Auto parts.
    Based on Advance autos computer this same filter fits the 600RR bike as well as some others.

    There is a honda dealer that I use for my ATV about 3 miles from me.
    Does anyone know for sure if the 600RR filter is the same?
    If thats the case I can use the local dealer ,and just ask for that.

    I would imagine they could look up the number and order the filter for you.

    I order 4 at a time and let the UPS man bring them to me, for $ 6 Not worth the time or gas to go to a Honda shop even if it was 5 miles away.

    If you ever been to a bike shop it's normally not like McDonalds. It take forever for somebody to wait on you especially in the summer time. I learned my lesson 30 yrs ago.

    I thought they could as well ,and this dealer used to sell skis at one point.
    They told me that they couldnt ,and then directed me to Jet Thrust.

    Ive used the K/N since the 1st oil change ,and now have 97 hours.

    K&N oil filter part number is KN204 or KN204c if chrome is your thing.... They are about 10 bucks, same as Hondas, and I have been running KN204 for 4 or 5 changes. All is good. I have used them on my LS1 vette for quite a few years and have been very happy with them. Sounds kinda goofy but the oil seems to stay cleaner and not get dark as fast.
    We have two F12Xs and my R12X so I get them 6 at a time at Advance Auto Parts, they have them next day. If you watch the ads every couple of months they have Valvoline full synthetic motor oil on sale buy on get one free. I stock up when I can get synthetic for the price of conventional oil as I use it in everything.

    So how many people using aftermarket or non-Honda filters have had one burst on startup because of the high pressures? Most all filters have a bypass valve, some are better than others? I am switching to a Baldwin B1431 because of Baldwins superior quality and contruction, the filter is 4" long so it has more filter area.
    PART NUMBER: B1431
    Descriptions : Lube Spin-on Contains : Anti-Drainback Valve
    14 PSID By-Pass Valve
    Thread : M20 x 1.5O.D.
    2 21/32 (67.5)
    Length 4 (101.6)
    I.Gskt : [1] Included
