Are you sure the 450 has a paper filter? My 02 WR426 is a brass unit. Looks like the paper filter but its not. I think Yamaha went to this in 01. Would be surprised if they went back to paper. Look it over real close before you toss it, might be brass.

I don't know that the '02 filter will work in the '03 but I've heard it is a direct replacement.
Hope this helps.

I talked to other TT members in private recently to collect their personal experience with the scotts stainless oil filter and they seemed totally satisfied with it...I guess they would not be if one gasket was missing...
