FWIW, a number of Motorcycle racing organizations have BANNED K&N oil filters due to the spot welds breaking and causing failures. Understand the harmonics created by a modern motorcycle race engine and you can see how this might happen. The local club here in Colorado has outlawed them beginning this year. That being said, Wix over Fram.


There was a recall on a couple K&N powersports/motorcycle filter applications at one time, an issue with an overseas manufcaturer resulted in a number of failures, but that was a few years ago. https://www.knfilters.com/recallkn204

No known issues with the car filters.
