K&N Performance Gold® Oil Filters
Originally developed for demanding auto race applications, K&N's premium oil filter is rapidly becoming a favorite among consumers for its durability and easy removal.
K&N Oil Filters Have Nuts
We have all been there: Whether it’s remembering where that disappearing canister tool is; or having oil leak all over your garage and yourself; or finally giving up and pounding a screwdriver through the filter just to get if off. Most of our canister type motorcycle, snowmobile and ATV oil filters come with a 17 mm nut.
Heavy-Duty Construction for Extreme Conditions
To satisfy the demands of racers, K&N's oil filter has many features over and above the requirements of most vehicles. K&N uses thicker canister walls for extra strength and durability which reduces the risk of damage from loose rocks and debris. The heavy-duty construction will withstand higher oil pressures found only in racing environments without bursting. The drilled hole on the nut is for a safety wire attachment. Required for many types of racing, the safety wire prevents blown oil filters from falling on the track and representing a hazard to other race vehicles. This extra engineering offers peace of mind for consumers who want only the best.
Compatible with the Latest in Synthetic Engine Oils
K&N's oil filters are ideal for high-end synthetic motor oil. Synthetic motor oil is said to offer improved flow performance at cold temperatures while providing superior protection against thermal degradation.
