I would NOT recommend the K&P oil filter. This filter has an O-Ring that tears and causes a slow oil leak..This is the second O-Ring that has torn and caused a leak on my 2016 Vintage.....If you are running one of these reusable filters, either check that O-Ring constantly or just go back to a regular oil filter. A lot of times, Better is the Enemy of Good.

I've been using Wix filters on all my bikes,four wheelers,and the fleet I used to maintain and NEVER had any problems leaking or else wise.I don't happen to have the part number handy right now but will be glad to get it for ya if you're interested.
Yup....actually running a WIX in my Vintage now...Threw the K&P in the dumpster.

The pics show AFTER the filter had been removed by the dealer mechanic.

1st leak - about a month after I purchased the bike...oil changed by dealer
2nd incident - After dealer had changed the oil from the first leak.

I ride with the mechanic at the dealership...awesome Mechanic. Everything was done to spec.
Not trying to start anything, but this what has happened to me...twice now.
