I called kawasaki rep and they told me that the gen4 oil filter they cannot order but gen 5 yes...

is there any real difference between them?

I have a gen4.

thanks

the oil presure on both gens are very different since they are meant to be measured in different temps.

gen5 is 13psi at 90c
gen4 is 28psi at 50c

The oil filters are definitely a different part number. I believe one ends in 8 and the other in 11. I have both a GEN4 and a GEN5 and have a few filters for each that I just got from my dealer. I can't imagine your dealer can't get them. Are you in the states?

I can ship you one of mine but it's probably not worth it. :) Personally I don't think I would have any reservation using a GEN5 filter on a GEN4 in a pinch especially sine the GEN4 pressure is higher. For a while I used the same K&N filter on both until the issue K&N was having with their seal.
