Gotta love forums sometimes.
I was just posting up the options I found as I had spent some time investigating and wanted to warn people that the K&N was the wrong filter.

I don't expect to convert anyone that only wants to run OEM but remember, Kawasaki don't make oil filters and I suspect that Hiflofiltro who have been making OEM filters for 50 years probably make them for Kawasaki too.

Hiflofiltro: Why Hiflo?

Hiflofiltro have a record of zero failures from many millions more filters than Kawasaki have ever sold.
I'll let you know if I'm the first person to smoke an engine using them.

I'm not sure why anyone with a sophisticated machine like the H2,the motor and metallurgical build.The Engineering that went into producing this motor would think that Kawasaki 'could have done better' in a filter design for it.Or some aftermarket company.I think when Kawasaki says 'use only Kawasaki parts' on their manuals,they aren't simply trying to make money.That's my opinion.OEM only for me.Except for the midpipe and exhaust muffler.Include a flash after that to match the flow rate.We know they were detuned purposely.So opening it back up should be fine.I wouldn't go any other route with Oil or filters.

After thinking about this issue, my biggest concern is not so much filtering capabilities, but flow.

The H2 has multiple sprayers that spray oil under the pistons and on the transmission. They wouldn't have gone through the trouble of making those sprayers if it was just for laughs.

So using an aftermarket filter, will it flow at least as well as the OEM?? If it doesn't those sprays won't hit the critical parts or won't supply enough oil. How do we know????
