Old thread, but thought I would ask,,.

1) Does anyone know if the Kawi OEM filter has a "hex head on the top of the filter" or does it require a filter wrench,,.

2) Sounds like the dealer was use OEM Kawi oil,,. Is there a better choice?
1) No it doesn't.

K&N's do have a "Hex" Head attached on the top of the filter to facilitate removal, but I don't know of any other brand that does this as well.

The OEM Filter has a smooth top with the typical "grip contours" along the upper side edge of the filter.

2) As mentioned earlier in the thread, a very subjective subject. I can only say that I've used Castrol's ACT>EVO Motorcycle Oil for years on all my bikes without any issues.
