I'm aware of the fact that Kawasaki is using a different oil filter for the '03 636, but i've read somewhere that the old one will also fit. Is there any problem using last years oil filter? Is there really any difference?
There's no difference between the newer oil filters and the old ones other than length overall ie it contains a little more oil and has more surface area for picking up whatever crap may end up in your oil. Two track days and 1,500 miles later I have had no problems whatsoever. Use it without worries.
