BSS? No idea what that means. Commercial certifying agency or something?
As far as filters go, they're all pretty much the same if you equate particle size and flow rate. The Yamaha filters use the same mount as Quicksilver and standard Racor (I think mine uses a 32013 canister; they make equivalents for just about everything.) Pick one that has good local availability for replacement canisters.
Before installing the canister, give it a couple of coats of automotive wax (and if it's not going to be handled/rubbed against/whatever, leave the last coat unbuffed.) Will go a long way in preventing the steel canister from rusting.
