The engine oil in your YAMAHA vehicle circulates inside the engine. The oil becomes dirty during normal operation as it circulates through the transmission, pistons, cylinders and clutch etc. The Oil filter, filters the foreign matter out of the engine oil. In addition, genuine oil filter cuts dusts in engine oil. If the oil filter is not periodically replaced it can become clogged with debris and eventually the engine oil may start to circulate without passing through the filter, which is liable to greatly increases engine wear and consequently shorten the life of the engine.
Difference between genuine and non-genuine oil filter
There is no big difference in appearance of genuine and non-genuine oil filter. But the performance of oil filter is not determined from appearance. In fact, many non-genuine oil filters appear the same as genuine oil filters, however the performance is not same at all. We at YAMAHA manufacture and design oil filters to specifically suit your vehicle. Therefore we have confidence that genuine YAMAHA oil filters are the best for YAMAHA motorbikes.
