This should be the last oil filter you will ever buy! Made from laser cut, medical grade, 304 stainless steel micronic filter cloth, this filter provides 200% more filter area in many cases. Most good paper filters will pass particles in the 90 to 95 micron range, and some tested, as much as 300 microns. Sand is about 125 microns and a white blood cell approximately 25 microns. Our stainless filter catches items down to 35 microns "absolute", which is about 3 times better than most good paper or brass filters. The pleat seam is welded, able to withstand up to 600 degrees in our filter, not glued, like paper filters.
Cleanable and reusable:
Simply remove the filter, rinse in clean solvent and replace it, you're done. The filter can be cleaned with solvent, kerosene, aerosol carburetor cleaner, or any other degreasing agent, even common dish soap. You can even blow air through the filter from the inside out to remove any small particles or cleaning agent from the screen if you so desire.
Consistent flow under all conditions:
Stainless steel will stand up to the stress of heat, high pressure and physical handling much better than paper or brass. This filter maintains consistent flow under all conditions including cold start ups and or under extreme heat. A one inch square of this micron filter material will flow 1.9 gallons of 90 weight oil per minute at only 1 psi pump pressure (70 degrees F). Our typical filter size is 30 sq. in. which equals the flow of 57 gallons per minute. Standard paper filters do not flow well when the oil is cold, often causing the bypass valve to open allowing unfiltered oil to enter your engine.

Used it on my KTM990 SMT for 6 years and 50,000 kms. Never an issue.

This filter gave me piece of mind with all the reports of the ktm filters collapsing and causing the top end to run dry this filter put my mind at ease.. but what stood out was the customer service this company was able to identify an issue with my online payment and fix the problem that day with upgraded shipping fantastic.

I'm a little more critical than most, looks great I don't think it will come apart ever. But inspecting the filter I came across 2 wires hanging off the filter by the cap end, it seems that they are from when the mesh was cut I did find that they are definitely attached and not loose floating metal. So I don't feel this affects the integrator quality of the filter in any way.

The OEM filters for the 1290 have been collapsing and starving the engine of oil. I changed mine to the Scotts now before I have any problem. Really nicely made part with a mesh so fine you can barely see the holes!
