Personally.. I'd stick with OEM Hydro Filters.. at least until your warranty period is up. You get a hydro fail on you and take it in for warranty, it's not gonna make it with a non-original filter on it.

Cross Reference For Oil Filters

Tried to cross reference the filters at Wal-Mart using the Fram Book but no luck.

Tried the Fram book at TSC - Tractor Supply Company and was successful in finding my Kawasaki 49065-2078 crossed reference to Fram Filter PH 4967.

Haven't been back to the filter section at Wal-Mart but I bet they have that Fram Filter. The difference in cost is about half of the Kawasaki

Try finding a cross reference at TSC or maybe an Auto Parts store.

Fram is like the worst filter you can use. For Kawasaki here are the ones that will work:

Fram ph4967
Napa Gold 1394
Purolator L14476 (Pure One PL14476)
WIX 51394

BTW oil filters are not the same as hydro filters, hydro filters trap a lower micron particle. Make sure you get the right thing for the hydros.

Mx good tip on the hydro filters. The purolator you mentioned fits my 17 Hp and 15 Hp Kawi. The metal flake blue looks pretty cool to

Fram Filters

I was not aware the Frams have a bad reputation. I have a 1993 vehicle which I have used Fram filters in since the first oil change. Before that I had a 1972 vehicle which I drove 21 years and I used Fram filters since the first oil change. Neither ever used oil.

Gonna do some research on this subject though.

I believe all Kawi's use the same filter.

As for FRAM....not the best. Their Tough Guard line isn't that bad though (thicker case, better O-ring, more filter media, spring pressure relief valve, etc.) It's the "ORANGE" Frams that got them the bad rep.

The Purolator Pure-One rates pretty good.

The problem with all those ratings is that one size can be different than another.

Hydro filters....always go OEM. Not worth it IMO. Plus your only changing them 2x's a year instead of weekly with the oil filter.
