plain and simple... NO.

stainless steel mesh filters dont even come CLOSE to filtering down to what even the cheapest of paper filters do, let alone a good OEM, HiFlo or K&N filter.

For the price of that stainless steel filter you can buy ~25-30 of the walmart supertech filters, which are actually pretty good filters.... if u changed ur oil and filter every 3k miles ur lookin at 90k's worth of miles before the stainless one breaks even.... at the price of motor longevity with the stainless as bigger particles would be floating in your oil.

What he said. I think the Harley guys like them as they catch the large hunks of metal that float around in their engines ........

A Honda filter in the states is like $8 or something stupid. Stick with that.

He beat me to the punch !
I went to the manufacturer's website for spec info.
35 micron filtration is absolutely horrid as far as ball bearings are concerned, and guess what your transmission has sprinkled throughout ?
It's also a lousy number for cam/bucket contact.
It's OK for plain bearings, but even then is only 5 microns less than the ancient industry standard of 40 microns.
Don't waste your money while shortening your bearing life.
By the way, I think the best filtration specs for a conventional filter are with a Purolater PureONE. And don't buy that nonsense that they are not good for motorcycles. The warning relates to ancient pressed up roller bearing crankshaft inline 4s that used very low pressure oil systems.
