    Just switched over to a K&N oil filter. Now, I know this is going to be a controversial subject, but, if you're interested check out my video: motorcycle oil filter review

    I use a Harley filter. You don't have to take off that gizmo that's in the way.

    Dunno what is controversial, unless you meant that you trashed others as Korean made. That was just bit funny. If memeroy serves me right, K&N used to be made in China, now in Thailand. I think it was in same factory that makes Hi-Flo.
    At least Ducati guys in Europe had problem with Thai made being out of specs and K&N replaced those with the ones that were labelled "made in China". That doesn't mean it's not good filter, may be the best, I don't know.

    Well, when I said controversial I just meant I'm sure others have their own favorite brand oil filter. I've never seen any test that can definitively prove which oil filter would be better than the other. I just think that when a filter list its features and most others just come in a plain box with a part number or wrapped in plastic,, you got a think the one that's promoting its features has to be better!

    Over the years I have heard people argue over oil filters with NO OQE (Objective Quality Evidence) to back up any of the claims just because they have been using them. :) Like my Chevy is better than your Ford, RAM Rules.
