I just read an article about them in Motocross Action and they said they are a lot better than paper filters. They filter particles about half the size of the paper filters. Plus they pay for themselves after a number of oil changes. I'm going to get them for all my machines.
I've been running Ready Racing reusable filters in mine since I bought it and have had good luck so far. I ran them in my Honda also when I had that.
I have run System One stainless steel mesh oil filters on my sprint car engines for 9 years with no oil filter failures of any kind. Yes I myself have seen paper oil filter failures to include spliting and pumping the oil all over the track. The stainless filters filter much better and flow many times more efficiently than paper and can last a lifetime. This article is from Scotts web site, or you can go to System One's site and see their filters for 50 weight oil and less filter down to 30 microns. So please read on and make your own decision about your next filter media.Think about it guys,.....try making mesh out of stainless steel, now try making a paper pleat......The paper fibers are so tiny, they are close together and catch the metal/debris in the oil.
The stainless steel mesh has larger openings, and all the small stuff goes right thru.
I'm not here to knock the stainless filters, but its only common knowledge.
