I suppose it would, but I didn't buy it to save money. I have spent gobs of money on this bike and the Scott filter was small change.Time ie mulitpe oil changes will cover the cost so yes or no
While I may be showing my age (~50) I have never believed oil used for the engine should be used in the transmission - the pressure and shear duty are enormously different. However the current reality is that the oil is now common to both gearbox, clutch and engine vitals. Some clutches use steel "driven" plates and others use plated aluminium with all sorts of non-ferrous crap going into the oil from the friction plates. Gearbox components including all needle and roller bearings through the engine mechanicals are ferrous.radman said:Only trouble with magnetics is that so little of an engines vitals are ferrous anymore. I suppose if you found a rod cap or a crank throw attached to it, it might indicate a problem in the making...... :lol:
I am 62 years old and I have never found anything wrong with any filter that I used on any engine. That doesn't mean much, other than I haven't blown an engine (yet).Has anyone found anything bad about these yet?
Do you mean you are using a disposable K&N oil filter on the FJR and on aircraft.joeseedoo said:I would in no way use a reusable filter. We used to use them on our planes and found it is too much hasle compared to long term savings. I quit on the yamy also. Use K&N now. What a great easy design. 17mm wrench takes it on and off. Has anyone found anything bad about these yet?
