Ive been using Purlator Pure 1 filters on both my bikes. I'm picking up a MTS this next weekend and am wondering is there a Pure 1 that fits the MTS?

If you ride regularly at 55°F you can switch to a 10W30 viscosity oil that will give you an oil pressure lower than 40 or 50 weight (see your Manual.) Less chance or the filter going into bypass. Unlikely that it would anyway, unless the filter is clogged.
Exercise care when installing the K&N-153 filter. The nut on the filter is formed as part of the casing — hollow not solid — so if the filter is over-tightened, the nut easily deforms leaving you with filter that is smooth on the outside with nothing to grab onto (it’s a nightmare to remove.)
