Replacement oil filter for 2016 Voyager

Hi guys,
I'm getting ready for a first oil change on my 2016 Voyager and was looking to get K&N filter.
Search tool on K&N website does not bring any compatible oil filters for 2016 Voyager, but does indicate KN-303 for 2015 and earlier.
I have a spare KN-303 for my VN900 and would like to use it.
Does anybody know if there are changes in Voyager design from last year and if it's OK to use KN-303? Or should I look at some other options?

Thanks

2009 Vulcan 900 Classic.

Under "tools" in the header you will find the Advanced Search feature.. Oil filters have been beat about for years...

Thanks. This is the first thing I actually did . Used the search and found that KN-303 is compatible. K&N website confirmed that as well, but only for 2015 and earlier years. Nothing comes up for 2016 on there website, hence the question. I just want to make sure that it will work for my scoot. If not I will go with other brands. I just happen to like K&N oil filters because it is easy to remove.

Since you already have one, try it. Am sure it should be good.

If they'd changed the engine in 2016, I'm sure someone would have mentioned it by now

Kawasaki lists the same part# for all 1700 Vulcans thru 2016. 16097-0008
So no changes.

Thanks for all suggestions. So I guess K&N filter will do.

Better oil filter, IMHO...

I'll probably get flamed for this, but IMHO the Purolater PureONE PL14610 is the only filter I'll use for my Voyager. It has a much better filter media and more of it packed inside.
