Just changed oil and filter today. I noted that Mobil 1 does not list the M1-108 as a motorcycle filter.Let's get the current knowledge of what oil filters work on the Twins compiled, and we'll replace the current sticky which is silly long. I'll do my best to keep this top post updated and keep this thread fairly clean.
Mobil M1-108 (and longer M1-110)
Mobil motorcycle-specific M1MC-134
bit late getting back on this oneDoes anyone use the Ryco RMZ-119 in Australia ?
Or just order them from Hermy's for the suggested price of $9.99 and not have to deal with motorcycle or auto stores and instead Ride while they are delivered to the house.Lot's of those filters listed are off-application, which bit some of the Purolator and NAPA users recently when they changed the design so they didn't fit the Triumphs anymore. The list is of filters that are easier to get, cheaper and/or considered "better" by some.
NAPA lists the Bonneville as an application for their 1358, but that filter is longer than OEM (or M1-108) and hangs below the guardrail some. So even using only manufacturer-recommended filters has its issues.
If it worries you, just buy OEM filters next time you're at the dealer. They are a few dollars cheaper than the 108 anyways.
Mistake - I meant to state I use the PH6607 car filter with no problems.The oil filter cross ref. was one of the first great pieces of information I found when joining the forum. Thanks to all that gathered the info.
I installed the Fram. PH6017 and it fit perfectly.
Did the same and didn't have a leak until after a 400+ mile ride over the Rockies, through all the twisties to the west slope. Next day had a puddle. You could see where the hex hit the filter thread base. Used a Carquest crossover (that had the concave thread base) to get back home. Pulling that off today, removing the nipple, chucking it up and machining down the hex to the point that it will never interfere with ANY filter, concave, convex or whatever!Glad I came back to this post.
I just changed the oil in my 07 Scrambler and I used the PL14612 that I always use. And was rewarded with a nice puddle of oil under the bike the next day...
