I got my information from this page
. Same site as the oil link above.
Scroll down to the "Spin on oil filter" section, table number 5.
The K&N-204 are in the "not recommended" section.
Although I'm sure K&N are great filters, according to the web page, there are better and cheaper.
I am currently using the K&N, because it was readily available, I will try one of the 2.5" "recommended" types just to see for myself next time I change the oil.
I can't use the 3.25" filters as they hang too low on my bike and I won't be able to put my skid plate back on.
As with most information on the internet, please take this with a grain of salt.
