Features and Details

Drilled safety wire holes for racing in canister oil filters

Most have sturdy 17mm (motorcycle) or 1 (automotive) wrench nut, where applicable makes oil filter removal quick and easy

Heavy-duty construction

Resin-impregnated filter media provides maximum filtering surface for containment removal

Anti-drainback valve (where applicable) eliminates dry stars and prevents oil from draining back into crankcase during engine shutdown

Internally lubricated gasket provides positive seal while allowing easy installation and removal of filter

Rolled threads provide extra protection against stripping

Originally developed for demanding auto race applications, KN’s premium automotive oil filter is rapidly becoming a favorite among consumers for its durability and easy removal. KN has changed oil filters and several of their product development technicians are sportsman class drag racers. They insisted that KN offer an oil filter that corrected the headaches they experienced over the years changing oil filters.

KN Oil Filters have Nuts

We have all been there: Whether it’s remembering where that disappearing canister tool is, or having oil leak all over your garage and yourself, or finally giving up and pounding a screwdriver through the filter just to get it off. Most of KNs canister type motorcycle and ATV oil filters come with a 17 mm nut (automotive and marine with a 1 nut) welded to the top of the canister so they can be easily wrenched-off with a standard tool.

Heavy-Duty Construction for Extreme Conditions

To satisfy the demands of racers, KN’s oil filter has many features over and above the requirements of most vehicles. KN uses thicker canister walls for extra strength and durability, which reduces the risk of damage from loose rocks and debris. The heavy-duty construction will withstand higher oil pressures found only in racing environments without bursting. The drilled hole on the nut is for a safety wire attachment.

Required for many types of racing, the safety wire prevents blown oil filters from falling on the track and representing a hazard to other race vehicles. This extra engineering offers peace of mind for consumers who want only the best.

High-Flow Rate

KN’s oil filters use resin impregnated cellulose filter media. This allows for higher flow rates while providing outstanding filtration. High filter flow rates are important in racing vehicles where heavier grade oil is used and the oil is pumped much faster than in a standard vehicle.

When the engine is circulating oil at high GPM rates, the high-flow oil filter helps reduce the loss of pressure through the filtering process.

Compatible with the Latest in Synthetic Engine Oils

KN’s oil filters are ideal for high-end synthetic motor oil. Synthetic motor oil is said to offer improved flow performance at cold temperatures while providing superior protection against thermal degradation.


KN’s oil filters are covered by a limited warranty to be free from defects in materials and workmanship when installed and replaced using engine and equipment manufacturer’s recommended service intervals.


KN’s Performance Gold® Oil Filters use a cellulose media bound by phenolic resin surrounding a metal inner core that provides structural strength to reduce the risk of filter collapse. the resin is the glue that holds the media fibers together, and at the same time keeps pores open by keeping the fibers apart. The resin is cured to full strength during the element manufacturing process. Phenolic resin systems are an excellent choice for the high temperature demands of oil filters.

KN’s filter includes an anti-drainback valve, when applicable, that prevents oil from draining back into the crankcase during engine shutdown. The anti-drainback valve is useful in situations where the filter is mounted horizontally which could allow backflow. KN uses rolled threads to help prevent stripping during installation or removal and an internally lubricated gasket provides a positive seal even after the filter has been removed and reinstalled.
