K&N Oil Filter Products

K&N premium automotive oil filters provide high flow rates while providing excellent filtration and engine protection. High filter flow rates are especially important in racing vehicles where heavier grade oil is used and the oil is pumped through the oil filter much faster than in a standard vehicle. K&N premium oil filters are engineered to handle all grades of synthetic, conventional and blended motor oils. K&N manufactures automotive oil filters for most vehicles on and off the road.

K&N Cartridge Type Oil Filter

K&N Oil Filter Products have High-Flow Rates

Our K&N oil filter media is a resin impregnated cellulose. This allows for higher flow rates while providing outstanding filtration. High oil filter flow rates are especially important in racing vehicles where heavier grade oil is used and the oil is pumped much faster than in a standard vehicle. When the engine is circulating oil at high GPM rates, the high-flow oil filter helps reduce the loss of pressure through the filtering process.

Compatible with the Latest in Synthetic Engine Oils

K&N oil filters are ideal for high-end synthetic motor oil. Synthetic motor oil is said to offer improved flow performance at cold temperatures while providing superior protection against thermal degradation.

Warranty

K&N oil filters are warranted to be free from defects in material and workmanship.  Any filter proven defective during the engine or equipment manufacturer's or during the oil supplier's recommended service intervals will be replaced at no charge.

In the event of an engine or equipment failure directly caused by a defective K&N oil filter, which was properly installed and changed following the engine or equipment manufacturer's recommended service intervals, K&N Engineering, Inc. will repair the damaged engine or equipment.  If a full synthetic or other premium lubricant is used K&N will extend this coverage to the interval specified by the lubricant supplier.

Claims for engine or equipment repairs provided under this warranty must be submitted within 30 days after discovery of damage.  K&N Engineering, Inc. reserves the right to examine the engine or equipment and filter to determine the amount of damage and whether it was caused by a defective K&N oil filter.

This warranty gives you specific legal rights.  You may have other rights which vary from state to state.

Engine and equipment manufacturer's warranties remain in effect when K&N oil filters are used.

TECH TALK

K&N Oil Filter products use a cellulose media bound by phenolic resin surrounding a metal inner core that provides structural strength to reduce the risk of filter collapse.  The resin is the "glue" that holds the media fibers together and at the same time keeps "pores" open by keeping the fibers apart. The resin is cured to full strength during the element manufacturing process.  Phenolic resin systems are an excellent choice for the high temperature demands of oil filters.

Find K&N Air Filters that Fit Your Vehicle

 

I've tried all the aftermarket oil filters for my Kawasaki ZRX1100 and found the [ K&N Oil Filter ] KN-401 to be as good as the original Kawasaki unit.  There are two rubber oil seals in the cartridge metal body that need to fit tightly around the oil pick up bolt (Kawasaki calls this part an oil filter valve).  Only the K&N fits like the Kawasaki 16099-003 oil filter.  And another big plus is both O rings come with each K&N filter!
