SE5 Oil change and filters

The SE5 takes two filters. I am ready to change the oil but need clarification if both filters are the same? I want to order a two-pack of filters but am concerned that they are only oil filters and not for trans. Are the trans. filter and the oil filter the same? I don't to have the wrong filter for the trans when I drain everything and then realize it is not right.

Filters are not the same. Hydraulic shifter body filter is much smaller. Personally, I change the shifter filter every other oil change even though they share the same oil. The volume through the engine oil filter sees much higher flow rate.

SHIFTER FILTER is P/N 420256452
OIL FILTER is P/N 420956745

SHS Powersports has very good pricing, excellent customer service, fast shipping. Link to their drawings below.

BRP is now suggesting changing both every time that you're climbing under the bike to do this...

Out with the old; In with the WOO-HOO!!
