    Not trying to start a war, and I know this has been asked numerous times before and will always be an on-going discussion, but I would like to get more, up-to-date opinions on this. I'm having a tough time deciding on which oil filter I should use on the 31 hp Kawasaki engine that's on my Super Z.

    How many of you use only OEM filters (air, oil, fuel, etc..) and how many use only aftermarket filters on your equipment?

    Thanks,
    Thunderhead:)

    I forgot to mention that if you use Aftermarket filters, please list the brand and why you chose that brand.

    Thanks,
    Thunderhead:)

    I encourage customers to purchase OEM filters and Synthetic Amsoil to reduce intervals between oil changes and extend engine life. Lowering service cost to the customer and making their equipment last for years to come. Besides most OEM filters can be sold close to the same price as any GOOD aftermarket filter.
