The oil filter for Versys X is a very popular one used by many bikes including the Ninja 300.

Has anyone found a car oil filter equivalent ? There must be quite a few I'm thinking.

Be aware longer versions of filters that fit the Ninja 300 wont fit the X300 due to location of exhaust headers- many of these longer filters are the automotive versions

The Bosch 3300 is same size as stock x300 oil filter, has hi-flow media to handle synthetic ( WIX makes a synthetic version of their 51358) for $7.99 at O'rielly's - the WIX is $12

Why would any one want to put a car filter on a motorcycle when there are so many good M/C filters available -and lets not forget the OEM one

I guess that if we don't change the oil all that often, then the fourteen dollars that my dealer charges for a filter - is perfectly fine. I mean, it's not like we're changing our oil eleven times a year. So, whats an extra five bucks or whatever.

I get it.

Yes there are a lot of automotive filter equivalents.


I like the NAPA/WIX 1365 as a good alternative if I run out and need one in a hurry. 8-11 PSI bypass valve

Wix 51365 & Napa 1365 Oil Filter: FleetFilter - NapaGold by Wix, Fram, Baldwin, and Luberfiner


This general size fits all of my power equipment and all of our motorcycles except Yamaha (filter bottoms out on filter boss before sealing)

But, normally get the HiFlo filters online for about $5.50/ea for 10. Get together with some of your frugal friends and get the 10-pack. I think your 300 takes the HF204. Maybe. Check the length.

I get Napa Gold filters twice a year during their half price sale. These are made specifically for the bike Why try to retro-fit a car filter when bike filters are not hard to find or really any more expensive (if you avoid the stealership as with any vehicle).
