Looking at buying a stainless reusable filter made by FLO. I've used a stainless filter on my dirtbikes and it has saved me quite a bit of money. Question is, will the oil filter from a zx10 fit a 2010 z1000? They don't list the stainless filter on Motosport for the Z, but I was wondering if a part would cross over.

Thanks guys

i am uncomfortable using a washable filter. it is imposable while cleaning the filter to not get some particles on the wrong side of the filter. thus on start up some dirt goes threw the bearings. maybe i am old school too much. i would rather change a cheep filter often than a expensive filter less often. i change my oil [ syth] and filter around 2,000 miles. when i drain my oil i want it to still look slightly clean. sorry about the rant and not answering your question about the two bikes using the same filter.

I have a whole list of cross-referenced brands & part numbers for the 03-06 Z1000

OK man - take this information with a grain of salt...you did not say what YEAR the ZX-10 Ninja was, only that you have a 2010 Z1000...

According to the Fram website, a 2010 ZX10 and a 2010 Z1000 both use the same part number - PH6017A. That tells me that they are both the same filter, so the washable filter should work fine from your ZX10...

I also looked at 2008, and it was the same part number. I also happened to acidentally click on a 1700cc Voyager, and it also uses the same oil filter (which doesnt surprise me - they do this to save on part manufacturing - use the same parts on multiple models. Audi does this with their cars - all cars are built on the exact same frame.)

It'll work!

Notabiker, I have a pressurized parts washer. Not just one of the cheapies from harbor freight. I put more concern into the motor that takes me over jumps on the 2 bikes I race over the bike that is on the street. Break down on the street: call a friend. Break down on the face of a jump: call the meatwagon. I've had wonderful luck with stainless filters on 5 dirtbikes all with over 150 hours on each.

They're all fine in my book if you clean them correctly.

you would think a paper filter would pick up smaller particles than a mesh ? i know in racing a cleanable filter is popular because you can see what junk is getting in the cleanable filter.
You can see whats in a paper filter as well. They make cutters that skin off the outside of a spin on oil filter. I definitely believe a paper filter would filter better than mesh.

I use an orange FRAM spin on to match the color of my bike.

Well one of the reasons I use the mesh is because of the oil changes I do on 2 race bikes, at 7-10 hours a piece and $5-6 a filter, the money adds up. I buy Oil in bulk because noone has made a reusable oil, but filters are stupid expensive and they make a reusable one...so why not

My fram filter is like $4... not expensive to me, and I am not telling you to not use what you do use. More just informing you of what I do/know. No argument intended. :)
