Scotts oil filter?

6 posts in this topic

I am changing my oil on my yz 426 (first time for me on this bike). The filter is stainless and the metal on ends is blue would this be a scotts oil filter? I just bought a cheap paper filter to ride this week end because that is all dealer had. I hope this is a good find for me . Thanks in advance

Not a Scotts. Maybe a CRT. Look into the open end at the inside of the other end. If you see an Allen head plug down there, it's a CRT. Make sure that plug stays tight.

I would, but I'm kind of a stickler on that. CRT's have slightly less filter media than a Scotts , and I've heard of a couple of them opening along the seam, but on the whole, I guess they work alright.
