When I did my first service at 600 miles the oil filter was fine. I just did the second oil change at 7373 miles and my filter was pretty severely collapsed. I am still trying to get in touch with KTM tech support to see what they say. Either way they probably won't be convincing me that this is a "normal" condition...

Update: Well I couldn't get through to KTM (15 attempts in the last two days) but my dealer finally did. Their answer was that the reason the filter collapses is because it must not have been seated correctly and it was forced on by tightening down the cover. This was most certainly not the case and you'd have to be pretty clueless to manage that. Either way they said it's not a big deal and it will still function acceptably and not hurt anything...Pretty much along the lines of the kind of answer I expected from them lmao...So essentially it can't possibly be because there is something wrong with a regulator/pressure relief device or a faulty/poorly designed filter or another issue within the motor...it's because the person servicing it (myself) is so extraordinarily inept that they crushed the filter down with the cover...Umm no...guess I'll be ordering a Scott's!

When searching for the OEM filter on amazon, I saw two versions. Description of one said "updated" and had a slightly different number.

Mate do yourself a favour and don't buy OEM, buy K&N or HF been using them since the dawn of time and never had a problem.
Besides there cheaper also

I had the updated filter in there...I was going to try out the K&N but decided just to bite the bullet and go with the Scotts filter. I was skeptical about it but I talked to the guys at Rottweiler and they said it's what they all run.

Nice. This must be the second update. Original one ended with 5000, second one with 5100, this one with 5200.

Anyone have any problems with the Scotts metal filter? I got one last year after my OEM one crushed and am about to change it again. Dealer who races a bunch said the new OEM filter with check valve is better as the scotts filter may allow more metal into the oil and has no check valve. Thoughts?

The Scotts I have does NOT have a check valve. Dont know about filtration. I sent the oil out for analysis to blackstone and put in an OEM filter in the meantime.

Oem filters ending in xxxxx5200 do have relief valves in them. I'm using them now.
