    Where do you guys buy OEM, Genuine Kaw. oil filters online? Everywhere I look they are aftermarket filters.

    I need part # 49065-2078

    Thanks!

    That Fram has no bypass valve....fine as long as it never clogs. The bypass lets oil get by a really dirty filter.
    The OEM is pricey because it has an actual metal/spring bypass. I get replacements from whatever seller Amazon routes me to.

    I figure if I change the oil like I'm supposed to....I should not have a problem...

    Find a Stens dealer in your area. Their replacement filter has the anti-drainback and also the pressure relief valve for $ 3.45 each. Part # 120-634. I wouldn't use Fram filters if they paid me to carry them out of the store.

    Puralator or WIX both have the anti-drainback valve and can be crossed from a Kawi filer.

    They (the Stens part) are what i use and yes they do have a valve. It is not the same as the OEM in that it is some sort of light blue plastic thingy but at least it has one and is somewhat reasonable in price. Too bad Fram is so cheap inside because I really like the no-slip grip goo they use on the outside.
