My Blur has 9500 miles, going to do the oil change and replace the filter. Any pros and cons of any of these filters? Is the malossi worth the 2x price for an old scoot like mine?

Also, any tips on changing the oil would be great.

I have been using the HiFlo filters for years on all my scooters. Never given me a problem.

I use this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/HiFlo-Oil-Filter-Gloss-Black-for-Polaris-ATV-HF197-4-Pack-/331671407281?epid=210026688&hash=item4d39280ab1:g:oZoAAOSw0HVWDy8f&vxp=mtr

Hi Flo HF197 with the hex top so no special tool required. Works out to be $7.64 each. BTW, that Prima filter is a rebranded Hi Flo HF197.

I'll probably have to reorder soon since I have two scooters that use the same filter. Very convenient for me.

Thanks a bunch.

I went with the Hiflofiltro HF183 Premium Oil Filter just cause it would get here faster and did not want to buy four.

You should have gotten the HF197- you will find it almost impossible to remove the 183 due to the confined location. I bought the special removal tool and still could not get it to budge. The hex nut on top is invaluable.

Yeah, you are right. I did not even try to replace it after taking off the side cover and seeing how much of a bitch it would be for me. Ah well, next time I bring it into the shop I will have them do it.
