    Is this a factory oil filter?

    IMG_5540.JPGIMG_5541.JPG
    Does any one know if this is a OEM filter? It is fine metal screen, maybe brass. It was in my '06 when I got it with a couple thousand miles on it.
    I've been cleaning it every thousand miles or so when I change oil. Have 11,000+ miles on it and filter is still solid. The filters I've seen pictured on the forum
    aren't pleated. Just wondering what I've got?
    Thanks and God bless.....

    Yes that is the factory installed filter that came on my 2013.

    Strangely enough, my 2013 had the non-pleated. Replaced it with the pleated type at first oil change. The pleated has to be better, more filter surface area.

    My 2014 had a factory pleated one. Maybe they just got a bargain deal on some cheap non-pleated?

    I hope this isn't too much of a hijack of the thread...but...
    How often should the filter be changed out? I mean, I've been throwing them away whenever I change the oil. If I can reuse them, it would be great.
    Do I just clean it from the inside out with carb cleaner?
    How do I know when it's "used up?"

    The last "stock" filter I purchased was pleated brass (Yamaha 5H0-13440-09).

    WIX also sells a pleated brass filter (57934) and it includes a new o-ring. And, yes it has 4 holes in the inlet end.

    I guess I just like to buy oil filters because a brass filter should last forever if it doesn't rip.

    Caution: Some non- "4 hole" filters have been sold by dealers. It can kill a TW motor. How a dealer can let that happen amazes me.

    Apparently both of my TW's (2005 & 2015) have the "garbage" filter. Both are the non-pleated brass screen filters.

    Looks like both have been used as OEM!

    Amazing isn't it! I've heard that 50% of dealers graduated in the bottom half of their "dealership" classes! Some dealers are good, it just seems like most we have around here are real bone heads!

    Apparently mine has over 11k on it and is still going strong. As fishguy mentioned a rip or even the tiniest hole would be unacceptable. Also if it seems crushed in any way I would replace it. The pleated design seems structurally stronger as well as having a much greater filtering area. I always blow mine out from the inside with WD40 or contact cleaner. I ran out of both and used the last of a can of ether that was on the shelf. Had to take a short break after that. I think carb cleaner would be excessive and is hazardous to your heath. A couple of my pleats are slightly bent but the filter is not compromised as far as i can see. If it aint broke.............

    God Bless
