EDIT SEE PICS TO COMPARE BELOW
Heads up on something I encountered today. Time for my first oil change and I go to my local dealer for an oil filter and oil. They tell me that the rhino 700 and the Viking 700 uses same oil filter and engine oil. Well, the engine oil may be correct 10w-40 Yamalube. Ok well, I get home and find that the oil filter on my Viking is 5gh-13440-50, part number from the rhino filter is 5gh-13440-20. They are the same size and thread type but the guts are made differently. I also go to Yamahamotorsports.com and check their parts catalog online and find that the 5gh-13440-50 is also the same filter they are calling for on the Viking. Can anyone shed some light on this? Anyone change their oil yet?
