Re use K&N oil filter?

Is it recommended or do I really have to order another one?

Theyre 10 bucks. Why ask. You wanna find out if its bad? The way you find out is by building up too much oil pressure (due to a blockage in the filter), and it bursting out somewhere you dont want it to. While riding. And then you have the motor running without oil resulting in spun bearings or burned piston rings. Spend the ten bucks lol

Life's too short. Have fun.

I'd never reuse any oil filter. As others said, they're dirt cheap anyway (at least compared to the price of the oil itself).

guess its a good thing that they have safteys buit into them to stop that ....

but then you have unfiltered oil, and if that happens long enough, see the remainder of your post

but they will not burst

that is btw, the exact reason there is often great debate on if a car filter should be used in the first place... as cars often tend to run lower oil pressure and thus their valving tends to relate to that, where as, if done right, a motorcycle filter would have a higher bypass pressure

which btw, is also why the stock filter uses a true oring, while most car filters use the good ole standard square cut rubber gasket.

I believe Scotts and another company makes reusable oil filter if you're looking at that route.

air dry it and then install it.

put it this way:
if u have to go through a blood transfusion and there's a option whether to go for new kidneys that are exactly like yours, just made using your cells, brand spanking new, u would settle using "old" kidneys?

Never reuse the filter more than once. And that's only if it's an "emergency". As for the filter just go out and get whatever filter you wanna get that will fit your bike. The brand wont matter for oil filters cuz they are basically all the same, air filters are a different story tho (k&n is the best or air) but i run NAPA gold filter which is cheaper than k&n and works just fine
