    I have a 17 hp kawi on my z master it is new this year. Can anyone give me a cross reference for Fram oil filters?

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    I just realized I should have put this in the repairs forum.

    Im not sure if there is a cross number for that. I always order my filters from either www.mowmore.com or www.precoparts.com. I have the same mowers you do and they have all filters for kawasaki.

    Spend the extra money and get a better filter. Thought I would save some money and buy the fram, and my mechanic explained what the 4 extra bucks extra on filter would get me. Did not know there was that huge of a difference in mower filters. From now on I put napa gold filters on both mowers.

    Good Luck

    I don't mind using another filter besides fram, the mechanic at my dealer said that i could use any good quality after market.

    I just need a number to get.

    Here are the #'s I just got...

    Fram - PH4967
    Wix - 51394
    K&N - HP-1003

    With the Fram #, you can cross over to just about any filter you want.. I personally wouldn't use a Fram, I'm going with Wix...
    There are allot better filters than Fram.. Hope this helps.....
