oil filter

Recommended Posts

Yes. The only diference '02 and before/'03 and later in paper vs. bronze screen. Yamaha went with paper because it filters better, and they were concerned that with the smaller volume of oil, the oil would get dirty sooner. The problem is that paper filters flow poorly and bypass a lot when the oil is cold or when they get dirty.

Get a Scott's stainless. It filters better than the bronze elements, and because of the bypass issue, better than paper, too. They're also much tougher than bronze, and will last for years, saving you a lot of money in the long run.
