I installed one of those K&N filters with the nut spot welded on the bottom. After 4000 miles it started leaking around one of the spot welds. I was on a trip and 750 miles from home. At the time I could not believe it and thought the seal was leaking or the oil pan had cracked. After cleaning it up I started the bike and sure enough the oil flowed from around the welded on nut. I sent off a comment to K&N but as expected, nothing. Just thought I’d pass along my experience.
