No.

Get the 14612.

The 14610 is longer, and fitting it behind the header, is tough.

I always use Pure One filters, based on tests Ive seen. $6.50 at Amazon, free 2 day ship.

I use the K&N KN204..I prefer it because of the 17mm nut on the end....it makes it easy to get on and off.....

As of yesterday when i ordered Motosport has oem yamaha filters for $7.50.A good price i thought!
That is a good price. Changed my oil the first day of ownership and the "out the door price" of an oem filter from local dealership was just shy of $18!
Changed my oil yesterday at 1,006 miles and used the Purolator L14612 ($4.13 + tax).

Interesting.
I went to this site Oil filter cross reference and put in the Yamaha part number 5GH-13440-50-00
and it came up with ML16817 amongst about a hundred other filters, including the Fram PH6017A.

But I have to say that the price of filters has gone thru the roof recently

Strange... Amazon says the Purolator L14612 doesn't fit the FZ09. What am I missing here?

Do they make this filter in rapid red? (jk)

Just a word of caution regarding Purolator filters.

I have seen cut away filter comparisons and Purolator does have more media than most filters and is well constructed. But to a fault on some applications.

Certain cars have reported a reduction of oil pressure using Purolator filters. When I had my Ninja 1000 I tried a Purolator filter. When I started the bike after oil and filter change it took a very long time for the oil light to extinguish. As a result I switched back to Bosch.

Just saying is it possible to have too much of a good thing. In the case of Purolator the abundance of filter media can be a problem on some applications.

More likely the filter you chose lacked an anti-drainback flap. Horizontally-mounted filters will empty without one...
