Found this today...any ideas why its smushed down in the middle? It looked like the first pic after my break in, went on a 5 hour ride after the oil change, pulled everything apart today to change the oil again and found the filter smashed.

Perhaps it was not seated/centered when the cover was screwed on?.....looks kinda old?.
Its from my 87 parts bike that i switched over. I liked the metal screen...easy to wash out and clean. Theres only one way it can go in as far as i know....right?

No, he's probably right. It only goes in one way but if the cover wasn't aligned exactly it could have caught the edge of the filter and squeezed it. It's so flimsy ya probably wouldn't have even noticed.

I'd considering buying a handful of the yamaha filters with metal screen: they're pleated, and because of that, I'd bet a bit stronger.



In the first pic: you making crafting glitter, or what?
