K&N Performance Oil Filters Add Value to Service Departments and Dealerships
K&N offers “Wrench Off” performance oil filters that are specially designed for use with today’s synthetic and synthetic blended motor oils. Many powersports dealerships and service departments use synthetic oils because of higher flow rates, long life and the viscosity which extends engine life.

Malcolm Smith Motorsports in Riverside, California stocks and uses K&N Performance Oil Filters in both its service and parts departments
Malcolm Smith Motorsports in Riverside, California is one of many forward thinking dealerships nationwide that stock and use K&N performance oil filters.
“If you use synthetic or synthetic blended oils it makes sense to use a K&N performance oil filter,” said John Jump, K&N Powersports Brand Manager. “K&N performance oil filters use a premium, synthetic media which is compatible with those oils while allowing for high flow rates.”
On the K&N canister oil filters, a 17mm hex nut (1 inch nut on automotive applications) is welded to the top and pre-drilled for safety-wire. This allows for quick and easy installation and removal on hard to reach locations. K&N canister oil filters come with a pre-lubed base gasket right out of the box and can be installed without worrying about the seal. They are built with a heavy duty canister and base plate, including a double-rolled seal to provide high burst strength.
“We use K&N performance oil filters on Hondas, Kawasakis and Polaris,” said Riverside, California’s Callaway Motorsports Parts and Service Manager Dan Lick. “The pre drilled hex nut is a great feature. It saves time and makes our jobs easier.”
Several of the canister filters from K&N are available in both black and chrome for show bike applications like Custom Streetbikes, Metric Cruisers and American V-Twin motorcycles. K&N cartridge oil filters also offer excellent quality.
K&N performance oil filters also have a very large cross reference listing. “Having a hand full of the right K&N oil filters will cover the majority of motorcycles that come in for service,” said Jump. “Simply click on the applications listings for
K&N performance oil filters can add value, cut down on service time and may increase profits in service departments and dealerships.
“We stock K&N products,” said Javier Gonzales, Service Manger of Malcolm Smith Motorsports in Riverside, California. “K&N performance oil filters are easy to install, available through leading distribution and do well in both our parts and service departments.”
