Default oil filter brands

was wondering about alternate replacements to the Victory (Polaris) brand in my '09 Vision 106/6 motor. I had some left over Hiflo 303 filters from my last bike that will fit but are about 1" shorter. Is there only the issue of capacity? I know there is another Hiflo 198 that is supposed to be the replacement.
Would there be any things like pressure relief , flow capacity, or cooling that would suggest this is not a good idea?

You should go to Hi Flow web site and read up on that filter.
Not sure why you would ask us when you can get it right from the horses mouth sort of speak.

I tell ya, I pulled my K&P filter the other day to remove the stock headers, and that magnet on the filter just plain works. Been pleased with it. I believe the oil is flowing better and the filter is super easy to clean and maintain. It gets my vote.

Nice. The guts look identical to the K&P.

Default K&P

Anyone else got any thoughts about the K&P ? I like the idea but I think ill start changing my oil every 2500 miles just to get my moneys worth out of it. And those COOL looking dip sticks that witchdoctors sells. IM always going to be buying something I get the feeling.

2014 victory XC, white.

I wonder weather there's really a cost savings or a cooler motor with the K&P unit.
Not saying there couldn't be but there's no before /after temperature comparison test to substantiate the claim. It would seem the amount of time the oil spends in the filter is insignificant enough to radiate any heat. However adding mass that is the makeup of the filter should absorb and eliminate some but significantly enough to claim... idk.
How many regular filter vs k/p oil changes would it take to recover initial expense? You're using brake cleaner and occasional replacement O-rings in exchange for a regular filter. Some savings per change but $200? Would take 10 years to see the cost benefit. The performance and/or longevity benefits can't be seen for some time til identically used motors are disassembled and compared using both methods.
Then there's the added time to clean the filter and who's to say it's really clean and you don't put contaminants back into the motor?
Ha, I'll prolly end up getting one anyway someday.
