I have been using this brand of filter in all my bikes for over a decade. I do a lot of long distance riding, change oil every 5000 miles, and have never had an oil related problem with any of my bikes, some new, some with very high mileage. This filter does the job, the "filter wars" notwithstanding.
Its a oil filter.... Looked good no tears or obvious defects only issue I had was that picture shows rubber o-ring that would go around cover (large o-ring) and mine did not come with that note that mine was fine and yours probably will be too unless you pry it with a screw driver or pick. Would have been nice to get it since it is pictured with filter.
