I just bought a Ready racing comp flow oil filter for my New 2006 YZ450F. Anyone used one before? And if so did you like it any feedback is good. Also for you techies do these metal filters filter better than the paper ones or are they worse? Thanks

I love my stainless filter. I have had it on two bikes, not one single problem. It has paid for itself many times over. As far as how they filter compared to paper, some say better, some say worse. Do a search, there have been many heated discussions on just that topic.

I love mine too, Its easy too, pull it out clean it up with carb cleaner and put it back in. Just pay attention to which way it comes out, just a reminder.

I've heard that the Ready racing oil filters fit loosely, is this true?

They fit just as good as the 'one time' paper filters. If you plan on keeping the bike for more than a year, get one and save money. :thumbsup:
