    This has been a known issue with cheap filters. Hence why BRP even upgraded to a metal mesh filter to make it even prevent this more. As stated just buy the better filter try it and then see what happens. We are all leaning towards the cheap filter being the issue. Spend the few bucks extra on your $12,000 Plus machine.

    they look like the same aftermarket filter, you should do what Jerry suggested and use the oem metal filter.

    What ski? 1630 motors use a metal mesh filter unlike 4tec.

    I agree! Dmags, you likely have a bad oil cooler, or a bad water pump seal.
