Oil filter?

Just bought a 04 fs650e. About to do my first oil change and was searching different threads for oil and oil filter most of you are using. Looks like Motul 300v 15/50 wins. But as for oil filter, couldn't find anything. Is there a preference? A quick Google search only came up with a k&n kn-155. I'm guessing there has to be more, probably better options out there. What are you guys using?

I use the k&n oil filter, hasn't let me down. I do my oil and filter after each ride so I'm not sure how it goes long term though.

I used both kn and hi-flow brand filters in my 650
Only did the filter every third oil change

Tgat size of filter has a long enough service life that you could go 1,500 miles on it withoutt it losing effectiveness.

Hi-jacking the thread.

Do you guys change the oil screen at every oil change?

I look at mine and clean the oil screen if needed. On 4 bikes I have only replaced one. All 70d motors

I check the screen every oil change, for the extra minute or two it takes why not?

Most of the time I forget about the screen at the head. Thank You for reminding Me. I added a magnet to the filter only $5.00 cheap insurance or wast of money? Told the magnet is only good for 5 oil changes. How stupid do they think We are...........
