first 06' Oil change question

6 posts in this topic

Getting ready to change the oil on my new 06' after break in. I was wondering if an oil filter for an 01' 426 is compatible for my new 06'. Looked in the book for a part #, but no luck. Thanks!!

The answer to your question is yes, it will fit. But you shouldn't use the OEM brass filters in your 450. Read this:

As far as the stainless filters go, Scotts is still the best one you can buy, and IMO is worth the price difference.

I was woundering if they'd fit also. My brother has the 426, and I have the 06 450. I placed the two fiters side by side and one of the filters is about 1 mm larger (longer) I wouldn't think that this would make a huge difference, but it was enough to keep me from using one of my filters in my brothers bike.(just in case):applause:
