I spoke to a friend and checked it with him and it is the correct filter and its installed tight enough, even too tight.
I was using a filter wrench which gave me alot of torque, i guess im used to spinning them on my hand.
After a big trail ride in 12 inches of snow my oil level is good and bike ran very well

I think every filter is hand tighten only, never use a tool to tighten. If you can't get it to not leak, there is seal issue with the rubber gasket.
