CRD vs. Ready Racing vs. Scotts

Recommended Posts

I doubt any of you have tried all three oil filters, but I'm wondering what people's experiences are with each. I'd like to get one of the three and I'm curious whether the two less expensive varieties are of the same quality as the Scotts.

I was going to ask the SAME QUESTION. I seen CRD in stock, Ready was sold out, they didn't sell Scotts, so I was going to ask how CRD is. Then I go look agian, and it's out of stock...

The CRD looked cheap in the pictures, Scotts look best in the pictures, and Ready looked alright, thats IMO though. But you can't go off pictures.

motosport outlet caries them. www.motosport.com

or you can get them directly through ready racings web site.

I had one on my crf450. It was very well made, and not too much $

I plan on getting one for my yzf, but am going to wait until I polish off a few of paper filters.

I do not know from experience how the copy-cat filters work or hold up, and I'm not going to find out. I just bought my third Scotts based on the performance of the other two that I've had for 3 years.

Scotts publishes all the pertinent technical facts about their filters. The others claim that they are "just as good", or, "made of the same material", but publish nothing. Not for me.... I know what a Scotts is.

642, your brass mesh filter is an OEM duplicate, and filters nothing smaller than about 70-80 microns, which is not really a very small piece of junk. The Scotts Stainless mesh filters twice as well as that, being rated at 35 microns absolute.

I have the scotts (available on TT) and it looks and works great. I was very impresssed with the craftsmanship of the filter when I got it. I have only cleaned it a few times, but it appears to be doing it's job.

I didn't know that K&N's were re-usable, I always just replaced them. They are made by another company (green box), for only $4...I think they come from parts unlimited.

That other company is Hi-Flow. I bought 16 of them on Ebay for $32.00. That's good for a year or more and cheaper than a reusable one, plus I don't have to clean it. :excuseme:

I do about 18-20 oil changes per year. both my Scotts filters are around 3 years old. At your price, I've had a clean filter with every oil change for over a year for free, and all I had to do was spend 5 minutes cleaning it.

The other side of the coin.

Plus, the Hi-Flow's don't filter particularly well, anyway.

I know, but I change my oil every ride and clean the filter every ride too. I would buy a better filter, but I haven't had any problems yet.

      Selling an FMF Power Core 4 exhaust system off my 450FX. Exhaust has 80 hours and is 100% functional. This will also fit the 14-15 YZ450F and 16-18 Wr450F. If needed I can also include new muffler packing although it does not need it.

      I have a 2008 YZ450F with a stock header pipe and Pro Circuit T-4 Slip-On Exhaust. I'm 99% sure the slip on is shot because its loud as hell and when I take it off and shake it it rattles. I would repack it but the screws are all stripped ect.
      Anyways I've gone over the carb multiple times and I've got it running pretty well. The only issue I have with the bike is that it sputters and pops around 1/2 throttle when I hold it there. When I give it full throttle from any RPM it runs great or when I give it about 3/4 throttle it spins up like a top to redline.
      Initially the popping and sputtering was way worse I made the situation better by moving the pilot jet up in a few sizes from a 45 (stock) to a 62. The issue has gotten way better since then but I'm not super sure what to do from here. Should I keep moving my pilot jet up in size because that's a pretty large jump right? I tried changing my needle clip position but that didn't help much if anything it just made starting it worse and little to no impact on the ride.
      Any input on this would be helpful. I don't want to buy other slip on. Also as for the rest of the carb I'm very sure everything else in it is what it needs to be at. I've replaced all the gaskets and O-rings cleaned all the jets, valve holes ect. fixed the accelerator pump timing. I just thinks its strange that my pilot jet size is going so far from the stock 45, but all symptoms point to the bike running lean.

      Hi I was wondering if y’all have been using a 450 on your YZ250F?

      Excel Takasago 17x3 front and 17x5 rear supermoto wheels with Metzler M3 tires in very lightly used condition. Less than 200 miles total on the setup. Warp 9 spokes. Rear has a Talon hub with 45T Sunstar steel sprocket and OEM rear disc, and front has a polished OEM Yamaha WR450F hub (for the stock speedometer), with a Motomaster 320mm disc. Included is a DID gold o-ring chain, 14T front sprocket, and front brake caliper adapter for a truly turn key setup. Everything is in excellent condition, not a single scratch on these wheels. Came off my '11 WR450F, but will fit many different Yamahas with 20mm front and 22mm rear axles. Asking $1400 plus shipping.
      **Will be driving up near Atlanta, then to northern Louisiana, OKC, and down through Dallas and Houston, TX soon -- can meet or deliver if in the area (Aug 31-Sep 9)**
