I was thinking of it because its a finer filter medium, maybe not a good idea for the oil pump, don't know.
Screens are coarser.

From past threads & other members research, the screen filters filter down to about 35 microns. The paper filters filter down to about 25 microns.

you should have seen the crap in mine. I changed the oil a few times
IMO (& Kawasakis, Hondas,Yamahas, Suzukis, etc, etc), it was/is a waste of time & materials to change the engine oil & filter more than twice in 1st 2-3k km or mi.
That is what the filter is for, to catch the crap & minuet particulates.
