yep, i want to do that for my T140V.
went to a local mechanic that races Ducati- we found a potential right off.
It's a Napa Gold Chevy Aveo filter, it is about 4" long and the same dia as the raised ring on the sump plate.
I will bolt it thru with seals. it has a lot of surface area, and is supposedly cheap.
Possibly a 'head in the sand' attitude from me but..... dont bugger about with the lubrication system, just change the oil every 1500m (as per the Triumph's recommendation) and use the correct viscosity (20/50) oil from a 'reputable' manufacturer.
It is a technique which got my T140 round the clock, although there have been times where the oil consumption was so high, the bike was getting a continuous oil change.
I'm with you on this one Dave, they work just fine the way nature intended, as long as you do regular oil changes. I really don't understand this obsession with changing everything.
... As I mentioned earlier, I replaced the center threaded rod with a longer rod so I could run two filters and increase the filter surface area. ... Testing proves somewhat it works.
Good luck all
I have a b25 based inernal filter and it's been fine over 25 years.
As said, change the oil and filter regularly and it's fine.
Presure side is probably safer but i am happy with mine since it prevented loads of tank rust getting through my engine.
As to whether it's better to clean the oil just before entry to the engine, or on the way to the tank, it's a bit academic so long as you start with a cleanish engine and system
