Default Oil filter ?

I think I have been using the wrong K&N oil filter!

I have a KN-303 installed now. It is supposed to cross reference with Polaris filters.

I went to order another one on ebay and discovered that it should be a KN-198!

Have I any harm by using the wrong one??

As long as it threads on properly, and seals properly, you shouldn't have any issues. I personally prefer a longer filter for more volume, but I don't have any data to back up that claim, it's just what I like.

I'm sure its fine, as long as it wasn't leaking oil. The only difference is a slight diameter and length increase.

No leaks.
Screws right on and fits like it would be the right one...
I was shocked to realize I'd been using the wrong one.

You are correct. At least from everything I have researched, and just plain ole common sense. Longer filter means more media, so more filter area. A tick more oil, which aint no biggy and would be negligibly on really any extra cooling.

Got a link to a Victory website on these filters ?? Very interesting

On another note: what programme are you using for Vic forum ?? It's a diamond shape ??

Not on Vic site, it's not a Victory product. I have a Bosch 32xx something on there now, and just bought a Bosch 3233 to replace it with. Was like $7 at autozone

Default K&N

FWIW The K&N-198 oil filter isn't made by K&N it's made by HI-FLO same number HF-198. Just doesn't have the nut on top, also about half the price.

I have the K&N on my bike now, but going to use the HI-FLO next.
