Upgrading your Oil Filter to a K & N

Just like any internal combustion engine, the oil used to lubricate and cool motorcycle engines gets dirty too and needs outstanding filtration. When it comes to oil filtration, you should  always seek the best. K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) has many premium grade filters that are effective to 5 and 4 microns, delivering some of the best protection available.

We have all K&N moto filtersbeen there: Whether it’s remembering where that disappearing filter cup is, having oil leak all over your garage and yourself, or finally giving up and pounding a screwdriver through the filter just to get if off. Most of our canister type motorcycle and ATV oil filters come with a 17mm nut welded to the top of the canister so they can be easily wrenched-off with a standard tool. Originally developed for demanding auto race applications, our premium motorcycle oil filter is rapidly becoming a favorite among consumers for its durability and easy removal. We’ve changed oil filters and several of our product development technicians are sportsman class drag racers. They insisted we offer an oil filter that corrected the “headaches” they experienced over the years changing oil filters. To satisfy the demands of racers, our oil filter has many features over and above the requirements of most vehicles. We use thicker canister walls for extra strength and durability which reduces the risk of damage from loose rocks and debris. The durable construction will withstand higher oil pressures found only in racing environments without bursting. The drilled hole on the nut is for a safety wire attachment. Required for many types of racing, the safety wire prevents blown oil filters from falling on the track and representing a hazard to other race vehicles. This extra engineering offers peace of mind for consumers who want only the best. K&N motorsport filters offer these great features:


  • Drilled safety wire holes for racing in canister oil filters
  • Most have sturdy 17 mm wrench nut, where applicable, makes oil filter removal quick and easy
  • Heavy-duty construction
  • Resin-impregnated filter media provides maximum filtering surface for contaminant removal
  • Anti-drainback valve (where applicable) eliminates dry starts, prevents oil from draining back into crankcase during engine shutdown
  • Internally lubricated gasket provides positive seal while allowing easy on and off of filter
  • Rolled threads provide extra protection against stripping
  • Traps 99% of harmful contaminants

K&N oil filters have filtration media that allows for higher flow rates while still providing outstanding filtration. High flow rates are important especially in racing vehicles where heavier grade oil is used and the oil is pumped much faster than in a standard vehicle. When the engine is circulating oil at high GPM rates, the high-flow oil filter helps reduce the loss of pressure through the filtering process.  Our oil filters are ideal for high-end synthetic motor oil. Synthetic motor oil is said to offer improved flow performance at cold temperatures while providing superior protection against thermal degradation.

When you are ready to step up to a high performance oil filtration device look no further than K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) for an unbeatable selection of K&N Filters. Designed on the track and ready for your attack, K&N filters offer the best protection money can buy.
