The K&N kn-204c is the chrome version you'd use :what: for our bikes. For black, just the 204.

I've been reading up about K&N Filters (love their 14mm Nut design) and people have been mentioning that they're made by HiFlo.

Also, there's a theory about having larger filters (air or oil) to prolong engine life.

Anyone know any larger sized oil filters for the Bolt?
Regards as always

FYI,  the Wix 51365 does not fit. Bottoms out on threads before sealing.

This was posted by Mr. ShakerNorm in another post. Ready to do a Oil Change myself and took me forever to find this post so decided to post it again so others can find it easily.

Just in case anyone needs them, here's a list of compatible oil filters.....  Personally I'll use Fram or K&N when available....

Yamaha   5GH-13440-50-00
Fram      PH6017A
AC-Delco   PF2135
Amsoil   EAOM103
K&N      KN204, KN198, KN303, KN303C
NAPA   1358, PS1358, 1365
Purolator   ML16817, ML16819
WIX      51358, 51365


The KN303 fits? I was looking at this earlier, but it got flagged in the auto system as "doesn't fit". They are only 6$ on amazon, so I really want it to fit.

Can you confirm for sure this guy fits on the 2014 bolt?

A lot of the ones that supposedly don't fit are only different in the length or outside diameter - the actual mount fits perfectly.  Length isn't a problem - but if it's too big in diameter, it could be a bear to get on or off.

so have you installed a KN303? I like the K&N nut on top, seems like that guy should be easy to install & remove.

or are you just saying that the area that screws on potentially matches?

303 is bigger is diameter and longer. I first got the 303 and then went back to exchange it for the 204. Just my OCD....

How much bigger? Did it fit? It's pretty tight in there. (Ug, let the jokes begin.)

According to the K&N web site, both 204 and 303 have an outer diameter of 66 mm. Only the length vary, not the diameter.
