Here's a couple of threads with info on filters & oil. If your cat dealer is too far away you could order from derbycycles.net they have free shipping so it wouldn't cost you anymore.

what ever you decide to use make sure its the right weight and that it is for wet clutch.

Some may disagree but I would stay away from a Fram filter. I don't feel the filter as well.

I agree seth i seen one cut open they were comparing it to a wix,no comparison.the fram was very cheap made on the inside.just my thoughts.but Iam sure there is others made in comparison to fram.and IAM not saying wix is the best filter either.

Thanks Triple J!

We use Wix at work and they seem to be a good filter. Never used the K&N but I like the hex on top of the filter for removal. I feel it's important to buy good oil and filter. These machines hold so little oil and we don't have to change every month so I always liked to used quality product. Oil is cheap insurance my dad always said.
