From blackstone laboratories,a lot more worn metal in oil versus oem,same brand oil,same hrs

Like I said,I won't be using them,they do NOT filter as good as paper,just like how a k&n air filter doesn't filter as good as foam,your engine,win what u want...

How does the paper OEM filter handle the start up pressures when cold?

I have read that the paper filters can collapse upon startup...?

They are designed for paper filters ,zero issue using a twin air or oem paper filter in my 11 450sxfs,or my 02,03,04,05,06,07,08,09,&2010 crfs.every manufacture uses paper filters

According to some, SS filters should not be used in XC4 engines but are OK in the larger 450/525/530/etc engines.

Run 5w40 and warm the bike up before blipping the throttle and you'll have no issues.

I take it you mean RC4 engines? I know Bill @ HT doesn't recommend them for the 250.

Paper filters from rocky mountain are like $3-$4 bucks, there work great for the money. I think the ones I get are tusk brand. If I was going to use ANY ss filters tho it would be Scotts, they hold together better than others ive used. I agree with openpro tho the paper filters do filter better.
