Scott's stainless steel oil filter for WR450
Posted April 05, 2003 - 07:54 PM
how much oil do you think a KTM 520 RFS holds? Like I said before this can be debated for ever and nothing useful ever come from it. But, what I can tell you is that I have been using the SS filters in my KTM for over a year with zero problems. I know others who have been using them for more than two years in the same bike. Some much longer than two years. KTM recommends an engine overhall after 45 hours. Retired Senior has raced his KTM for over two years using SS filters and has not even had the head off.
Once you get the information from Yamaha about the oil pressure, and properties of their paper filter then we can start doing a side by side comparison with the SS. Until then, I am still waiting for my bike to break as a result of using the SS filters.

The filter is different (and has a different part #) in the 03' WR450, however you can use either in all the models you listed including the 03' WR450. They are the exact same size. Personally, I'm thinking of using the paper filter in my 02' WR426 as paper seems to work better. $11.66 a pop is inexspensive (and I get an employee discount so I'll pay less than that)...............db
Actually its the same filter for, TT250R, WR250F, WR426F, YZ250F, YZ400F, YZ426F, and YMF 350/400 quads.
