the 04 wr450 filter is paper. when you go to replace it buy one for a 2002 wr426. it is stainless steel and you can clean and reuse them about 20-30 times.

if any one tells you you will blow up your motor they are on glue. they are the same size, shape, have the same pressure blow off valve, and they are $1 cheaper the the one time use paper ones.

:) :D :D :D

I wonder did you tested the valve on the filter? How do you know it is the same pressure blow off valve???
