Does anyone use the off brand oil filter? If so, what is the part number? My understanding is that you can buy them at auto parts stores.

Found out I can just go to wal mart and get a SuperTech ST7317 for $2.50. It's made by Champion. I love saving money!

Thanks for posting those part #'s, that's good info

When you're bored one day, take out your sawzall or large tubing cutter and open up an oil filter.

I did this years ago with a few car oil filters and was somewhat surprised what I found

The known and trusted "FRAM" was a simple paper element filter with a piece of "kite string" wound around the middle section (seriously)

Not saying the factory POLARIS one is good or bad, but just can't judge quality by price or packaging, that's all.

Regarding "WIX" My I personally know of (2) excavators that run those in his Bobcats and Backhoe's for years with no engine problems

I didn't say ams oil made the filters. I read on another forum that ams oil recommends champion filters. Sure they recommend their own as well.

You just bought that thing and it is not even broken in yet. I would stick with the stock one if you are bringing in for break in service etc. I would ask if using aftermarket filter will effect your warranty in any way.

Other than that a filter is a filter to me. As long as it does not restrict the flow of oil. You are running a good synthetic oil and I am sure you will be changing it per manufacturers specs.

Yep, not even close to broken in. I drove it down the road here and maybe put 3 miles on it. Can't wait to get it to the UP!

That is a good point about making sure the filter doesn't void the warranty. Supposedly aftermarket oil can't so I just figured that the filter was the same.

Put some studs in those tires and come ride the ice trails. Between my place and yours is a friggin race track. Not a sole to be seen. Saw car tire tracks on trail 8 the other day.

Fyi - There is no truth to that whatsoever. Besides their own brand (EAO) they also are distributors for Donaldson, Wix and Mann filters. Wix is the primary manf. for their brand filter using patented media licensed from Donaldson (synthetic nano-fiber).


I have some info that suggest Polaris oem brand filters come from KTM or the maker of KTM filters.

I probably won't be up there again until they're ready to put the electric in. Proably in a couple of months. We should do some fishing then.

I use the Polaris oil filters, usualy change it 2x's per year(about 800 mls per change). I just buy the oil change kit from Pol. that has the oil & filter in it. Sure it's probly a little more $$ but it's only a couple times a year so I don't worry about it.
