Oil filter for the 2016

Can someone tell me if the new 2016 model takes the same filter as the 2015? I need to order some K&N filters. The '15 took a KN-303.

I would recommend using oem mainly because the bike is under warranty and if something were to happen that was oil related they're going to point right at that filter. The oem ones aren't anymore expensive.

I also had a k+n filter try to kill me but that's another story.

Thanks, I like the K&N's as they are drilled for safety wire.

If there was an issue, I could always slap an OEM back on it

O-ring blew out, filled my belly pan with oil down the back straight. Rode through the run off area but if it were on the road...

If you guys are safety wiring with the OEM, would love to see how/where the connection is.

Just use a hose clamp around an OEM filter and attach one end of the safety wire to the hose clamp.

No, that's the way I do it now with the Gixxer, I was wondering where you connect the other end of the wire.

Oh sorry. I drill a hole in an oil pan bolt and wire to that (if I recall, without going out in the garage and looking). :)

There's a lip on the casting for the oil pan. I drilled a small hole there
