No difference. The dealers just like seeing all those $$$$$ signs when they hit the total button on the cash register.storm16 said:Are Kawasaki (or whatever brand) filters really superior enough to command 3 times the cost?
I didn't realize that ! Guess I should read the Verses a little more myself !!Sky Rider said:The FRAMS don't have the pressure relief valve that the OEM filter does. Also they apparently have gone downhill in quality over the years with cheap filter material.
However, if you check the verses, you will find that Bosch makes a filter with the same valve psi rating for about $6 at Autozone. The WalMart filter is also made by the same parts manufacturer at about $4 but it may be hard to find. Not all WalMart's carry it.
