OEM? Has not Yamaha used about 4 different manufacturers of oil filters in the life of the FJR? That means 4 different OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers).

To my knowledge only Denso. The first one was just a blob of filter material, rather odd and not very good IMHO. Latest one is more like traditional pleated media, but is the "shorter" version.

What's wrong with a K&N?

It's simple math.

I'll let the OP say his reason but mine is far too many reports of leaking at the projection welds for the nut. A couple of VFR guys have had the nut fail and leaked a large amount of oil onto the rear tire, others just had leaks. I know of one guy who went down and it wasn't good. Apparently there was a recall some time ago, but some have had leaks since. My only thing then, if you are going to use one, do not tighten it on with the nut (I don't know that they did or didn't). I'm sure there have been happy customers too, but why roll the dice?

There was a recall and that was limited to a particular range of serial numbers. That doesn't mean all K&N oil filters are bad. Many of the reported leaks are caused by ham fisted mechanics using the nut to tighten the oil filter. K&N specifically directs you to not do this. The plural of anecdote is not data.

We also had several instances of failed K&N's on the CB 1100 forum. The welded nut is a definite possible failure point. Personally I agree with Ray, why roll the dice with your motor and your trip?

To the best of my knowledge I have never read/heard of a OE filter failing

I don't see any reason why I wouldn't use purolators. They're cheap, 2mins down the street at advance auto, and I've used them forever. My old civic used the same filter as my CBR.
That was convenient.
I'm pleased to see their new boss filters are black.
Regular is red, pureONE are blue, boss is black. You can match them to any bike!
