Hey Paul I have installed the SCOTTS OIL FILTER on my 01 WR426 You do not need the blue rubber, I called SCOTTS and they said that its only used for a spacer on the stock unit. Hope that helps. Any questions just call SCOOTS their very helpful. Raid Safe and Ride Often

Does your Scott's filter have a rather wide black rubber gasket("O" ring) that fits on the cover-end of the filter? I use a touch of assembly lube grease to hold it in place when I slip the cover have the bike leaned way over to the left to help keep the filter in place as I replace the cover. I put a large eye-bolt in my garage celing joist and then hook a tie-down from there to my handlebar crossbeam. This also keeps excess oil from running down the engine case when I remove the filter cover. Works for me.
