AN OIL FILTER HELPS PREVENT FOREIGN MATTER INFILTRATING INTO THE ENGINE

The oil filter cleans the engine oil as it circulates through the engine. 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.

In a comparison of part life, the genuine filter lasted longer than any of the non-genuine items and with the maintenance interval listed in the owner’s manual being based on that of using a genuine oil filter, if non-genuine oil filters are used for the same period of time, there is a significant danger of clogging.

On this example, the genuine Yamaha filter offered superior overall characteristics, having the highest level of performance of the four products compared.
