hi, welcome!

OEM- 3084963 ASM. FILTER OIL $9.49

K&N oil filter- KN303 $12.59 from amazon.com, 13.99 from J&P cycles

HIFLO Filter- HF 303 ~$8.00 (and an awesome oil filter too!)

NAPA- 1358 ~$6-$12 (depending on the outlet store you buy from)

Wix- 51358 $7.29 rockauto.com $10.26 from amazon.com

Fram- PH6017A $8.44 amazon.com

see......the OEM filter is all not way expensive and jacked up on the price. it all falls in the price range of all the other major oil filter manufactures. and the OEM filter is manufactured by subaru, so it is a fairly high quality, high filtron screening rating. if i remember correctly, the HiFlo filters are the only filters that screen out smaller particles then the OEM filter, and its cheap, so i you can locate a HiFlo, i would go with that hands down. i run HiFlo filters on my sportbike and after 7,000 hard high RPM miles the engine still runs awesome

Wow!!!! Thank you very much. I ride a Harley and I thought they were high on parts but Polaris takes the cake on part prices so I thought they would be high on the oil filter. Once again THANK YOU!

your welcome,

some parts polaris sell are way jacked up on price. and sadly, most of the time its not the dealer, it is polaris who has such a high dealer price. luckily, in a bind, the OEM filter from polaris isnt such a bad price.

now, ever need a radiator fan or something like that, different story, OEM is a rip off!

Well my apologies for being a little late to the game, I have only had access to post as a vendor for a couple days now. Have you considered AMSOIL fluids? AMSOIL has been around for 37 yrs. By comparison study AMSOIL makes the best 10W-30, 10W-40 and 20W-50 motorcycle oil along with the best gear lube on the market today. AMSOIL also has a full line of EA oil filters that trap 98.7% of all contaminants down to 15 microns.

If I can provide specific information for your application (ATV or vehicle), just PM me.

Take care,

I know about fan blades, just replaced one on my 1998 500 Sportsman for $55.95! Also replaced needle valve for $44.95. Had just replaced needle valve in 1999 500 that I had on the shelf from several years ago with $24.95 price tag on it.
