I was looking for a good quality oil filter for my 2011 850 xp and found that fram makes one its a ph6017a any one tried it !!!!!!!
Same here. I do recommend/like wix though.I have used Fram oil filters on cars and atvs for many years without any issues. If I remember correctly the 6017a is the same length as the Polaris filter for the XPs. Don't use it if it is any longer as it may get smashed (if it sticks out farther than the stock filter).
Purolator at Wal Mart is 3.27 and a lot closer for me to travel than back to POPO land for their overpriced stuff. I don't know what a Polaris filter costs but I'm sure it is much more than 3.27, and the savings in gas will pay for the Purolator. Your young and savings should mean everything to you. If you want to save money for stuff for your kids, use alternatives, and those 3-4 changes will cost less than half when using alternative fluids and filtersWhy would you not use a Polaris oil filter. It's not like you change your oil and filter every week. This is just me a person might change there oil and filter 3 to 4 time a year at most I just don't see the big saving over Polaris.
