KS washable and re-usable oil filters are now available in the UK from sole distributor WMD.

Recommended by top performance exhaust manufacturer Devil, the KS design filters and cools the oil, and, being re-usable they are also greener than replacement filters.

The steel mesh used in the KS filter design is precision made to allow a maximum size particle of 35 microns through. A paper filter, because of natural variation in the paper, may claim a smaller number as the average filtration, but in fact, they can allow much larger particles through, to the detriment of the engine. Also, on regular paper oil filters, a cold start can cause oil to bypass the filter completely, as the low flow-rate, combined with thick, cold oil, causes high pressure and forces open the filter bypass valve. KS oil filters rarely need to utilize this bypass, as they offer a flow rate nearly seven times that of a paper filter. The result is excellent filtration, even with cold, viscous oil, and without risk of under-lubricating a cold engine. Additionally, a magnetic pre-filter catches abrasive metallic impurities, both large and small, before they can cause any wear to an engine, or to the filter itself.

KS Oil Filters are also easy to dismantle for cleaning. This is essential for owners or mechanics concerned with the inner workings of an engine and means that any filtered sediment can be easily inspected for signs of debris, swarf or other signs of contamination or potential trouble.

The KS Oil Filters red or black finned billet aluminium casing not only looks stylish and trick, it also cools the oil as it is filtered.

KS Oil Filters fit a large range of models from Aprilia, Arctic Cat, BMW, Buell, Cagiva, Ducati, Gilera, Harley Davidson, Honda, Moto-Guzzi, Kawasaki, Sachs, Suzuki, Triumph and Yamaha.

All KS Oil filters retail at £97.02 including VAT and are designed to last the life of the machine, provided they are adequately maintained.
