I have'nt tried one yet, but I did buy one for my '04. I got both an '04 paper filter & an '02 metal mesh one. I figured for the first oil change I'd run the paper as it'll catch finer particles, but I think I'm gonna throw the mesh one in on the next oil change (after next ride).

The only concearn that I have is that the mesh filter will obviously flow more oil compared to the paper one, & you wouldn't think that could be a bad thing, but who knows... :cry:

Here's a link to an old thread that discussed some of this before.

I wonder if the '04 & '05 paper filters are the same? I wish Yamaha would hurry up & update their online parts catalog with ALL of the '05 models... :cry:
