Reusable oil filters?
Posted February 18, 2001 - 07:43 AM
I did a search and it seems people are just using the OEM paper filters.
Also, I assume the filters are the same between the YZ and the WR.
Any help appreciated.

Note also that I am in the midst of major valvetrain repair right now (aprox. $500)because of a stupid little spring breaking. See the discussion topic titled "What happens when your compression release return spring breaks".
I figure after blowing all the money for the rebuild (new piston rings too), I might as well try and keep as much of the clutch material and other particles from recirculating in my engine.
I did my initial break-in on Yamalube petroleum base oil like you're supposed to. Then I switched to Amsoil synthetic (10w40w). Now I have to go back to Yamalube once again to get the rings to seat. Eventually I'll be back with Amsoil again - if everything holds together that is. It will be interesting to see how much material ends up in the oil filter this time around.
Cleanliness is next to roostiness. Peace of mind ain't half bad either...
