Twist Lock Assembly
1  Place the filter element into the housing making sure the three "ears" on the element fall into their slots in the housing. 2  Gently push the filter element straight down into the housing.
3  Place the filter element into the housing making sure the three "ears" on the element fall into their slots in the housing. 4  Gently push the filter element straight down into the housing.
Lube the quad ring with a thin film of clean oil and install onto the engine.
The filter should spin on at least 3 full turns. Torque the filter to 20-25 ft lbs and recheck torque after 100 miles.

Twist Lock Disassembly
1  Grasp the filter housing in one hand. To prevent scratching the filter housing use care when setting the filter on any surfaces. (a paper towel or small cloth works nice as a pad) 2  Gently push the filter element straight down into the housing.
3  Twist filter element 1/3 turn counter clockwise (to the left) 4  Release the filter element. It should spring up through the 3 slots in the filter housing. You can now remove the filter element for inspection and cleaning (see cleaning instructions)

Spirol Lok Installation
After all components are clean and dry, place the filter element back in the case making sure the three "ears" on the element
fall into their slots in the case. Next, reference the spirol lok installation below. (Note: The top (upper) ring of the spirol lok has a bent tip.)

1  Hold the bottom (lower) spirol lok ring in your right hand with the bottom end to your left. 2  Insert the very bottom END of the spirol lok into the slot in the housing.
3  With your right thumb on the top side of that bottom ring and your forefinger under
that bottom ring, tip the top of the spirol lok toward you (like a cup of coffee)
while pushing the spirol lok down into the slot in the housing. Do not try to thread
or spin the spirol lok in, the key is the tipping motion of your right hand while
pushing down to get it to snap in.
4  Continue this technique until the spirol lok is completely installed into the slot in the housing. 5  The filter element will normally be a little loose in the housing. As the filter tightens on the engine it will tighten against the spirol lok which will eliminate any play.
Double check and/or reinstall the rubber quad-ring (either side up).
Lube the quad ring surface with a thin film of clean oil and install filter on the bike.
The filter should spin on at least 3 full turns. Torque the filter to 20-25 ft lbs and recheck torque after 100 miles.

Spirol Lok Uninstallation
Remove the filter from the bike. Try not to booger up the outside of your filter, after all you paid good money for it.
Plug the threaded hole so that debris will not get into the inside of the filter element.

1  Use a small screwdriver to gently pry up the top end of the metal spirol lok that holds the filter in the case. 2  Use caution not to damage the rubber quad-ring that seals the top of the filter to the engine (it can be removed if you like.
3  Pull the spirol lok up and toward the center of the filter in a circular motion and work the spirol lok out of its slot. you should now be able to remove the filter element from the case.

Cleaning
We recommend the K&P Micronic Stainless Steel Oil Filter be cleaned frequently when first purchased or when engine work has been performed. This will give you a feel for how much debris is being filtered out of your machines oil and help you decide how often you want to clean the filter for your application. At minimum, clean the filter with every oil change. Remember, oil is the lifeblood of your machine, keep it clean!

Wash the reusable stainless steel filter element in clean solvent, kerosene, aerosol carburetor cleaner or any other degreasing agent; even common dish soap and water. If inspection of trapped debris is desired, flush the particles into a light colored, clean container. Once clean, lightly blow air through the filter from the inside out to remove any small particles or cleaning agent from the screen. Finally, if you have a spin on model, clean the inside of the filter housing using the same type of cleaner as used on the reusable filter element.
