K&N oil filter Part number KN-204 or KN-303

Hi All,

I am going to do my first oil change soon.

The mechanic that I go to uses K&N oil filters and that's the brand that has been on the bike the last few years. I like that it has a 17mm nut on the end, and if it aint broke don't fix it, right?

So I'm going to go with K&N again. I have seen conflicting info on this forum as to which part number I need.

I have seen both KN 204, and KN 303. Bike is a 2006 (username is a typo)

Can anyone confirm which is correct?

Thanks in advance.

Either one works. The 303 is 12mm longer.

So I took a close look and I have a KN-204 on there now. I'll just go with that again unless there is some reason that the 12mm is better.

Thank you

Probably no difference in quality. Larger one would require a little more oil to fill to capacity.
