Has anyone changed their oil filter and what did you use? Local auto store crossed the yamaha no. (D16 - E3440-00-00) to a WIX 51358. Also brought a filter wrench thinking it would fit the yamaha filter - no dice. Do they use a high dollar proprietary filter wrench?

Its a Yamaha part number and costs about $30. Money well spent.

I disagree with the money well spent. No reason to charge 30.00 for an oil filter other than they can. I believe I've tracked down the correct part no. and will post it later today if it fits.

Anyway the correct WIX part no is 57040. If you go to their website they have the 2016 Kodiak listed, and this part no. works for all but one model.

I noticed Amazon shows the Wix 57040 as being made in China. Has anyone with hands on experience with the 57040 checked to see where it is made?

I bought an oil filter from a Yamaha dealer several months ago and put it on. I just bought another filter from the same dealership and its a different size. I know the filter that I have on it is the wrong one, what would you all do?

I can't imagine the base model using a different filter. In fact I would think all Kodiaks and Grizzlies would use the same filter, since they are all pretty much the same engine. I just bought a genuine Yamaha filter for mine for $28 (!!!). Don't think I'll be returning to that dealer. Anyway, the filter box showed what models it fits, and there were quite a few

Looking at the factory part numbers all the Kodiak's and Grizzlies with the 700 engine use the same oil filter.

Interesting that the Carquest 85365 fits - that's the same filter most Nissan cars take (just installed one on an Infiniti G37x today, in fact). Glad to know that, because it's way cheaper than the Yamaha one (like $3 vs $30) and there's a Carquest right here in my suburb. Carquest filters are made by Wix, or were, anyway. I've heard Mann has started making their filters, which is also good. We use Mann filters exclusively at the European specialty shop I work at (used a Carquest filter for the Infiniti because we don't do many Japanese cars so we don't stock filters for them)

Most filter material is made by the same manufacturer its just a matter of who slaps their name on the outside of the housing and packaging which determines the cost.

Oil filter for Kodiak 700 I bought this filter on Ebay 5.89 free shipping (eBay item number:131729736640 ) I changed my oil last week and this filer is perfect. Just like I just ordered 2 more. Abeach6882 is correct most of these filters are made by 1 or 2 manufacturers.
