Kawasaki's filters have good quality and they're reasonably priced.

16097-0004 - made in Japan (useful for cross-reference)
16097-0008 - made in China (commonly available)
16097-0552 - made in Thailand (comes on the bike)

WIX makes "XP" versions of their filters that are wire-backed and have synthetic filtering media instead of cellulose media. WIX filters appear to have very good quality and tick all of the boxes for an oil filter (metal end caps, coil spring, etc..).

Current prices for the direct fit 51358XP filter start around $6.50 or $7.00 plus shipping from Big Online Vendors.
Rock Auto: $6.42
CarID: $7.09

The bypass valve is 8psi, not 14, in case that matters. (Does it? I would expect that to match the filter media.)

The part numbers are 51358XP (match), 51365XP (2.5" automotive), and 51356XP (3.25" automotive).

Here's a video showing the difference between regular and XP:

Found this quote on bobistheoilguy.com

"According to Purolator, the Honda OEM filter bypass setting is 12 to 14 psi. WIX (NAPA Gold) builds their oil filters with a bypass setting of 8 to 11 psi, while AC Delco builds theirs to a setting of 11 to 17 psi. How much do these differences matter? I don't think anyone knows, even the engineers, and each has its own set of advantages and disadvantages.

If you do lots of racing, you're probably better off with a higher bypass setting.
If you do lots of *cold* starting, especially in the winter, or seldom change your filter, I think you're better off with a lower bypass setting. However, with few exceptions, bypass pressures for spin-on filters run in the 8 to 17 psi range, and any of them should work acceptably. "

Awesome post/thread! Nothing like nerding out on oil filters! Haha. Recently used an "alternate" size oil filter on my car (so far so good, no leaks, ha). May give one of these a try on my next N400 oil change. Just a noticing here, there is a lot of love for WIX in the automotive world.

The EX500 used the same filter. I used the PL14610 that I had on the shelf when I changed my EX400's oil. If you want a car to cross-reference for looking up the longer filters, you can use the 1997 Ford Probe (4 cyl Base and 6 cyl GT both use the same filter).

http://web.archive.org/web/20180406...ki/index.php?title=Oil_Filter_Cross_Reference is the archived copy of the list from the EX500 wiki. It's pretty close to this list, but there are a few others on it (some that I've never heard of).

Just wanted to update on the Mobil 1 M1-110 filter. I guess the new revised part # is M1-110a

I just installed one on my bike so it definitely fits. Got it at Walmart for $9. Also just switched to Mobil 1 Racing 4T...

I'm using a NAPA Proselect SFI-21356 filter (fits a 90's era Mazda Miata, among many other vehicles). Here's a link:

https://www.napaonline.com/en/p/PSW21356?vehicleAddPDP=true

Filter fits fine, no leaks. It's made by WIX and on sale for less than $4. It's about 3/4" longer than stock filter so if you're using a longer filter, be sure to account for the additional oil capacity it provides (took me more than 2 quarts). And btw, I don't see any impediments to using a longer filter so I'd guess the 3.5" ones will work just fine. One MAJOR note to using alternative filters, watch the overall outer diameter of the filter casing at the base near the gasket (***at the crimp joint***). There is a small projection or two from the engine housing that extends below the filter mating surface and basically limits the diameter of the filter. So a slightly larger diameter filter may not fit. The one I installed fits but didn't have much room left over.

I recently moved back to my home town of Pacifica, CA. Exploring the local stores I wandered into O'Reilly's. I was pleased to find they carry a variety of motorcycle oils and Wix brand filters, #51358. The filter is expensive but their Castrol Power 1 is less expensive than Cycle Gear. Trying to shop in person and locally.
