Reusable oil filter
« on: Mar 12, 2021, 08:21:29 am »
Hello,

Looking to buy one of this ... FLO Spin-On Oil Filter for Kawasaki Street (PCS1) - PC Racing USA
Doe anybody has any experience with the reusable oil filters ?
Most important thing that I like is that they are less restrictive ... no by pass valve opening ... more oil to the cams ... better cooling ...

Thanks
Marcel

    I would not use a reusable oil filter  but that's just me, I want new every time I put fresh oil in

    I believe 35 microns filtration is not too good. 

    I considered a Scotts reusable for my dirt bike but decided against it because it didnt filter as fine as a good paper element.   

    Then there is the cost.  You could buy many years worth of paper filters for same price.

    The cannister does look cool though and you would be able to easily inspect the filter element for contamination.
